Though we moved to Marblehead in 2008, it wasn’t until December 2011 that I happened upon the incredible holiday lights of Riverside Drive.  My wife had spotted them first after leaving the YMCA one night with the kids and told me about the display.  I found time on this night to visit the scenic street and capture a panorama of every house lit up with holiday lights.

I actually shared a version of this shot before which I had transformed into a globe by folding it up on itself.  I decided the full panorama was actually more impressive and reworked the original images to create this new version.

As I see posts on Facebook talking about Holiday light displays in other towns, I thought it fitting to remind people of this beautiful display within our own small town.
