Christmas Eve Captures

We got a bit of snow in Warrenton on Christmas Eve. It happened during the day, but I was delighted. Because I love snow. And seeing it on Christmas Eve made me happy.

You gotta take happiness however you can get it, right?

Of course I had to go for a walk and take some pictures.

I had the dogs with me as I usually do when strolling through town.

Walking behind the bitches.


I’ve been taking lots of pics during my nightly strolls lately. The town just looks so pretty at night.

Here are a few examples.

Camera phone pics are okay. But on Christmas Eve I decided to venture out without the dogs and with my SLR camera to capture some “real” images.

I used the tripod, too, which is critical for clear night shots that don’t use a flash.

Here are my favorites.

I am pleased with the results.

Yes, three are of the courthouse, but I just love the way that looks all lit up.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite?

    Great pics. Well worth toting the camera and tripod around.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I usually go looking for night shots too, and I usually carry a small tripod. Nice night shots. I use the remote to fire the shutter to minimize camera shake, or you could use the timer
