Preparations

The Botanical Garden in my town puts on an annual holiday light display, decking the gardens in thousands of Christmas tree lights. I happened to drop by the gardens as the workers were stringing lights.

These lights are not turned on. The sunlight was reflecting in them creating a lovely glow and sparkle.
Great DOF. What an exciting season for photographers.
