Today’s images come from Christmas Eve 2011.  I had gone out that evening (if you can consider 4:00pm evening that is) in order to shoot Marblehead Light lit up for the holidays.  I had captured a few images of the lights dangling from atop the lighthouse the previous year but had a few more images in mind.  Little did I know that this would be the best presentation of lights I would see (they seem to have dimmed significantly in each of the past few years).

What’s interesting is that I captured one image at the peak of sunset and, 15 minutes later, another with a longer exposure.  It’s amazing to see the difference between the two frames captured in the exact same position and only 15 minutes apart.
