Happy Holidays!  The Christmas tree at Abbot Hall is lit as part of Marblehead’s Christmas Walk.  I missed the actual lighting but added this to my list of shots to post on the blog.  It ended up being tough to find a time that was still enough for the lights to come out sharp and without motion artifacts.  On this day, I showed up at Abbot Hall at 3:30 and waited impatiently until the lights flickered on.  Shot this as an HDR to bring out the texture in the tree, the detail in the lights and the beauty of Abbot in the night.

Technical: Canon 50D and 10-22mm lens.  6 bracket exposure.
