Winter Wonderland

This was taken moments after the "Believe In Holiday Magic" fireworks at Disneyland. I was lucky enough to score a spot for my camera and tripod moments before the show began at the very corner of the viewing section in front of Tomorrowland.

 

One of my favorite moments is immediately following the last burst of fireworks, Disneyland "snow" begins to fall on the crowd and all the trees light up from the Christmas tree to the hub with these bright LED lights as they play "White Christmas," sung by Kelly Coffey. As I was still stuck in that spot, I swung the camera around and snapped a few shots while the smoke was still clearing from the castle.

 

I also usually don't use a border in my flickr shots, but this one seemed to need an extra bit of framing to set off the black borders.

 

Shot with the Nikkor 18-200 VR.
