I can't believe this is the first year we have put up outdoor Christmas lights. I love Christmas, and Christmas lights especially, so I am super excited that we finally have some of our very own. We did have to invest in an extremely long extension cord, but it was so worth it, even for the small amount of lights we bought this year. I am also very grateful for the fact that my new camera can actually capture a decent picture at night. I still have no idea how to use my camera to its full potential, but even with the easy automatic settings, these pictures turned out much better than I expected.
