Photo of the day: Rudolph in the Rein

After Christmas, we made our annual trip up to Spanaway Park see the Fantasy Lights display. Every year, I bring my camera along and make a valiant attempt to get good photographs of the lights from the moving car. To do it right, I'd really need to walk the course with a tripod, but I don't know if that's even allowed, and it's invariably cold and rainy when we get up there anyway. Even so, I'm really, really pleased with this image I managed to get. With the darkness and dampness and the lights reflecting and refracting everywhere, it turns into a somewhat impressionistic image, not my typical style of photograph, but all the more special to me because of that. I like it.
