You know it’s the holiday season when the city starts rolling out the Christmas lights.  Boston Parks lit up their trellis in North End.  And naturally I knew I had to go pay it a visit.  Let me just say, there’s nothing quite like a tunnel that envelopes you in a soft blue hue.

I’m learning very quickly that Christmas lights are difficult to photograph and make interesting.  I tend to underexpose to preserve the details of the lights, but then I lose any hint of the subject of interest.  But if I want to try and expose for the subjects, my image get’s a bit too grainy from the higher ISO.  As I write this, there’s an annual Christmas tree lighting that I will be shooting later this week where I plan on trying new ways to photograph Christmas lights at night.

All is calm. All is bright.
