Shimmering

Newer Older

An approximately ~10-story (~150 ft. or ~50m) building located near the US highway (US 281) just a few miles north of the downtown metro area of San Antonio, Texas, USA displays a Christmas tree of immense proportions annually during every holiday season. The tree consists of many long strands of LED lights that stretch from where they are staked into the ground at the base of the building all the way up to a pinnacle point near the very top of the multistory building.

I purposely defocused my lens to bring out the color of the lights in smooth and silky bokeh, but I didn't quite expect my exposure to capture the reflection of the Christmas tree in the windows of the building itself. The reflection of the lights came out amazing and surprised me when I discovered them after reviewing the photo on my computer.

Standing in front of the building brings the scale of the Christmas tree into focus and provided me an amazing holiday experience to photograph, but the essence of the tree and its size can bee seen for quite some distance for everyone that drives on the heavily traveled road.

AMAZING when viewed in LIGHTBOX!!!!!
