Nearby us in Vienna, VA is the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens consisting of over 95 acres of gardens and trees, many of which are mid-Atlantic species. Each year approximately half of the gardens are decked out in a "Winter Walk of Lights" that would make Uncle Walt proud. Naturally we took the granddaughters who you can just barely see in the foreground. And naturally I had my camera with me. Last September I posted on low light, hand-held photography and this picture revisits that concept. I used my Olympus OMD EM-5 set to 1600 ISO and I mounted the 25mm Leica Summilux/f1.4 set at 1.4. This allowed a handheld shot at 1/80s capturing both the beautiful lights and the last color from the setting sun.

There is nothing that says celebration like a beautiful light display around nature. Thanks for posting it.
