Goodbye Christmas Tree

Over the years, I have had lots of fun shooting this Christmas Tree.  However, each year the family puts it up, the less the lights work and the branches are starting to get worn out.  I have a feeling that next year will bring a new tree.

Police Lights

I took the family for a drive through the Holiday Lights at Veterans Park.  The drive through was pretty nice and the displays were pretty good.  This was one of my favorite.

I went to the Woodstock Christmas Jubilee Parade of Lights the other evening.  The temperature dropped after dark and we did not stay for the tree lighting.  However, I got a few shots around town before dark and some of the parade.

Lights and a Tree

It snowed a little bit on Friday and continued into Saturday.  I could not resist going out and taking a few shots in the snow Friday before it got too dark.  This was with about 3 – 4 inches of snow.  We got another 3 – 4 after I took this photo.  The snow was so good, that we made a 7 foot snowman.  However, the temperature was right at 32 degrees and the snow was very wet and heavy, and the snowman fell down during the night.

Garden Lights Path

I am so excited, it is the start of Christmas Lights season.  No, this is not from this year.  However, I can’t wait to make some memories of lights this year.  This is from the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Garden Lights display a couple years ago.  I think my favorite from the gardens that time was the couple Admiring the Tree.

Canopy Walk Lights

One of the paths at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens is a walkway that goes through the canopy of the trees.  For the Garden Lights exhibit, they had wrapped many of the trees in Christmas lights.  My wife and kids had gone ahead and I was trying to catch up to them.  Unfortunately for them, it took me quite a while.  There were a few good compositions up here.

Wonderful Winter Weather

So, I’m a little late with today’s post thanks to this wonderful Georgia weather.  Thanks to the prediction of just a trace of snow, schools opened and people went to work.  A trace turned into 3 inches here rather rapidly.  Last time I remember this type of prediction was in 1993 and we ended up getting around a foot.  If you’re in the affected area, stay inside and warm.

Icicle Christmas Lights

I wish we had the weather we are having now at Christmas time.  I know that I live in a place where white Christmas’ are just a dream, but sometimes dreams happen.  This snow is just a few weeks late to have made that dream this time.

This is the bridge across the railroad tracks in Jasper that leads to the Woodbridge Inn.  When I was out for the Night of Lights, I found that they had Christmas Lights making a tunnel across the bridge.

I made a quick stop in downtown Fairmount the other night to get shots of the Christmas Ornaments.  My youngest decided to brave the cold with me.  Most of the time, she was running around looking at the other lights, but for this shot, she stood patiently beside me.

A Big Family Christmas

I hail from a large family.  So, when it comes to Christmas time, it is usually massive.  Just to give a reference, there are five kids and all of us have children.  We celebrated the other evening and this was Mom’s tree prior to the distribution.
