San Antonio, TX – Riverwalk

Here is a little color explosion for ya!  Back in December we went down to see the XMas lights at the Riverwalk in San Antonio.   Late nite when it was quiet…I stationed myself on a bridge and played around with long exposures and zooming in and out.  I wanted to catch some light streaks using the hanging lights from the trees.  It is easy to do…just set a long exposure and zoom in or out while the photo is being taken!  And this is what you get!  Have fun with photography!
