COLORS OF THE SEASON
This is our first Christmas in the Park. We didn't know what to expect in the way of decorations in this day of being politically correct. Our city seems to be more prone to the sensitivities of being PC than some. We are very happy to see that all the park-owned buildings are beautifully decorated. These photos are of the bridge over the creek that leads directly to the clubhouse buildings.
The brickwork under the railings in the middle photo gives the impression of snow. Let me assure it is not snow. We are expecting a temperature of 74F degrees on Christmas Day! (23C) Now I know why I love living in Southern California! We had a total of 13 years living in Toronto, Canada and Minnesota and I'm sorry to tell all you snow lovers out there, I don't miss the snow one bit!
The third photo is the same view as the second photo, only I took the third photo using the flash. I'm not in any way a professional photographer, but somewhere I read that it was better to take Christmas lights without using the flash. Looking at these two photos, I guess it depends on what kind of a result you want. I like the third photo better because I like the rustic looking fence.
