Christmas lights at home

30 second exposure at f/6.3 on ISO 200.  Canon 5D3 camera and a 24mm lens.

Returning from a walk with my hound last night, I decided to take a photograph of the Christmas lights before I take them down this weekend.  The first image was just the scene as it is and I found it a bit bland.  In the second, I kept the shutter open longer so that I could run around with a blue glow stick to light paint in some stars.  A little bling added to the scene made it a bit more fun.

  3. I couldn’t help but smile at the thought of you running around with a glow stick “decorating ” the yard, with the family thinking, “Oh, there he goes again.” The glow of the lights always warm my soul. Happy shooting in the New Year, Christopher.

    • They are used to it but I still draw a few laughs and raised eyebrows with my photo antics!

    I only got what I believe is the second picture. Very interesting with the glow stick addition. I don’t know if Kananaskis is in the warning but Banff, Jasper, Radium and much of the back country are in extreme avalanche condition and the are telling people not to go. I think our Chinook is over🙄

    • Thank you Mom! The first was bland so it hit the virtual trash bin. I should have written that a little clearer.
