1/3/2006: Gouda city hall lit for Christmas
A red face for me this week as I set this into the queue for IotD and then forgot they were "time-sensitive" being directly Christmas-related. But they're so good they need to be an IotD anyway.
xoB sent these along; I thought they had something to do with cheese, but it's just the name of the town where the cheese comes from in the Netherlands. For Christmas, the city hall is lit in 8 different variations and it changes on the half-hour.

I especially like the way the windows are changed with the new scheme. The last image looks totally metallic. Makes me say: HOW THE HELL'D THEY DO THAT?

I couldn't find any pictures of the other 5 variations. Hopefully someone out there lurking on the net will help us out, I'm guessing they're just as cool as these 3.

Gouda Town Hall
oh and btw, greetings all. This is my first post but I've visited daily for a long time to see the pic of the day. Maybe my hubby (native dutchman) can post some info about it once he sees the page and reads it.
Oh found some more in this fella's photo collection

Oh man, that's real. I thought it was a flashback.

I like the shot with lots of green and yellow. Had a piece of gouda do that when I left it at the back of my fridge too long!

Anyone know how long they've been doing this? It seems like it'd be difficult without modern conveniences.

Right on, delindakay! Welcome to the Cellar.
I know, I know, it feels a little perverted, but only the first time.
Don't you feel all warm and fuzzy knowing you've enabled all these IotD watchers, to see these wonderful pictures they would have never seen without YOU?
Hi Pancake man, welcome to you too.
