This years' was the warmest Nights of 1000 Candles I've ever been to. In past years, there have been times when I have been so cold that I couldn't feel the buttons on the camera, but this year was not just mild: We're talking bikini weather here (though even so attired, you would still have on more clothes than most of the statuary..).

In years past, I have either taken a tripod (now disallowed) or set the camera on something for long time exposures. This year, I just cranked the ISO up to 16000, 32000 and sometimes 64000 to see how things would come out. Obviously the results aren't as pristine as some in the past, but despite all the high-ISO noise, I think you get the general spirit. If you've never gone, well, it's too late for this year, but you should make some plans for next.

  1. Awesome pictures as always, Ted. I really need to invest in a new camera. My old Nikon D50 is so limited on what it can do compared to newer models. Heck, my cell phone takes pictures almost as good. Do you have any preferences on SLR's? I swore by Minolta's for 35mm and have used only Sony and Nikon for digital.

    Merry Christmas!!!!!!

  2. Nice pics Ted. It has been 20 years since I last went to BG. My son was three and I have some great video of that visit.
