Photographer's Note

Well its time to jump into something different from the usual landscape theme. Sort of anti-climactic but then again an illustration for perhaps some fresh ideas.

This one of many photos I took at the Enchanted Garden Christmas Lights that are put on each year from Brian Minters Country Garden location. The link says there are a million lights here. After you see it you will believe it.

When I got here I was told I had to stay inside my truck while driving through. I responded by saying.."I want to take time exposures"... and persisted until the lady called her supervisor for permission to let me in. I knew I was getting somewhere.. and I did manage to get in on foot with tripod and all.

The workshop shows the non zoom in manger scene while this one shows the result fo zooming in and out for 8 seconds. Shooting photos like this is a real creative way to play with your camera. I also used a minus one full stop exposure compensation because its a night scene. This is also image 3440 on my Rebel 300D which is actually 13440 plus photos taken already.. still going strong. Enjoy and Happy Post Christmas.. See workshop for contrasting image.
