More holiday lighting on another Omaha house. The white star shaped objects I think are to look like snowflakes, but the snow clumps on them are changing their shapes.

The combination of make-believe and the reality here make it like a true wonderland . . I imagine it was difficult to get the right balances in the shot, too. Lovely result.

@Ronnie 2¢: So true, Ronnie, and the wonderland was made especially nice by all the snow we had the weekend I was out with the camera. It was difficult to get the right amount of blue and white and all balanced with the right brightness. I use RAW files, so the choices are many. Thanks so much for your visits and comments!

What a magical photo and place. They did a lovely job of it!

@Rick: It definitely is amazing. I think the snow adds so much to it. I am not sure it would be so magical without the snow. There was a lot of it that weekend, and it clung to every surface for a couple of days, as if our world had been dipped in frosting.

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks, Denny! So good of you to stop by and leave your comment. I love those blues, also. It is my favorite color anyway, and when I saw the digital response, I was surprised and pleased. I had not been out for nighttime photos yet, so this series was a real treat for me (and a challenge). My husband drove the car, and I would yell "stop"! :)
