This past Tuesday, Mayor Deke Copenhaver lit up the city’s Christmas tree at the Augusta Common. I couldn’t go, as the lighting took place while I was still at work, but I did swing by that way after work on Wednesday to take some pictures of the pretty tree.

Thanks to Dariush, I’ve learned more about my camera’s controls, so I was able to get night shots with more detail than I’ve ever managed before. They’re still terrible, but I can tell they’re less terrible than my previous night shots ;)

More starting here.
