Wintertime brings cold to many areas but it also brings the celebrations of various holidays and displays of lights. Candles are lit on the menorah with the shamash over eight days of Hanukkah. People in warmer areas wish for snow to feel more like it’s Christmas. Quaint areas of town string their storefronts with twinkling lights. Homes do the same but sometimes they also include lawn ornaments. Still other places celebrate the winter solstice and the coming new year with fireworks displays. While late December is a busy time of the year for many, these opportunities provide photographers motivated enough to brave the cold plenty of opportunities to practice their nighttime photography skills. Take advantage of them while it’s still possible.
Happy holidays, whichever ones they may be, from our homes to yours.
