Night Lights

My older daughter and headed out to see the city Christmas tree, which had its official lighting this past weekend, and to experiment with a few other night shots.

Christmas lights

Of all the shots I took, I ended up going with a relatively low exposure time.  High winds ruined the longer exposures.

The downward streaks seen in various places are "dripping" lights that move down the entire length of the tree.

To give an idea of just how strong the winds were, this shot was taken with a tripod and 4 second exposure.

This one is another 4 second exposure.  The longer exposure times had the flags virtually invisible.
