Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light!

Photography, in a word, is painting with light. And what better time of year to capture light!

I love Christmas lights, they make me happy. We have several really superior light shows close to where I live; the images below came from the Yukon Festival of Lights, one of my favorites.

Curtains of lights overlaying a light display reflected in water - that's what I call a trifecta!

I'm sensing a theme!

The water dragon has always been one of my favorite displays, I think its because of the water!

    People do get sooo creative with light decos this time of the season. I love it! Can’t wait to see some myself. I need to practice on my light photography. I wish mine will be as great as yours.

      Rommel, Thanks! Uuse a tripod and set your exposure longer. That will help. I shoot with a NIKON D800, it is 36 mp with a 6400 ISO. This was my first attempt at lights with this camera and I was able to hand hold it and get these shots. If I use a tripod next time, I think I can get even better shots.
