Gardens Aglow at Heritage Plantation, Part 2

Continuing with our tour of beautiful lights in the snow at Heritage Plantation.

These were so pretty because they changed colour.

Have I mentioned how much I love my new camera?

This was made out of plastic bits.

I couldn't talk either Val or Russell into going on the carousel with me.  Boo.  :-(

Now for the best five shots of the night.  I have wanted to take shots like these forever and never managed to achieve the desired effect.  I can finally scratch this one off my 'photographic bucket list'.

The snow was really coming down hard when we were headed back to the car.

Hope you enjoyed the Gardens Aglow Tour 2013!!


  1. I did enjoy the tour, thank you JoJo! Love the shots; especially the snowy ones. To me, it's not Christmas without snow! Happy Holidays my friend!

  2. A great tour, JoJo, and those 'best 5' were magnificent. Such a neat effect. I can tell you love your new camera, and I totally understand. Your camera eye is well developed. Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  3. I'm just in total awe at your skill. That snow reflecting the lights is just simply amazing!
