    The real magic happens at Christmas time...

    I've re-tweaked this thread as I stopped by on my home from work again last night, 11/20, and took a few more shots which are found down at post #6. I hope you'll forgive me as I've seen so many amazing shots already in the past few days between Darkbeer, Daddyb, Sadako, Aniko, Mastergracey, amongst others, but the park is so beautiful at this time of year, and I just couldn't help myself. So....If you are photoed out and can't bear any more, you'll have to try another thread.

    But if you'd like a couple more glimpses of Disneyland during the holidays in the evening hours, then by all means, please peruse the following at your leisure.

    The flag retreat ceremony with the new tree nearby...



    The lights begin to glow on Mainstreet...



    and on the castle...



    and in Frontierland.



    The Mark Twain heading around the bend...



    Frontierland after dark...



    and Splash Mountian...



    Critter Country...



    The view past Columbia from Fowler's Inn:



    Even the Shooting Gallery has lights up:



    Time to head home. The view up Mainstreet:



    Upon closer inspection, the Tree seems to be about the same size as last year's. In any case, it's ginormous!



    One last look before heading home:



    I LOVE this time of year! I got a cup of hot cider and found a bench and just drank in the music and the lights. After a tough week, it doesn't get much better than this.

    BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! (New shots down in Post #6 )

    I love it too.

    It's a real, unadulterated Christmas.

    Last year's Holiday celebration felt compromised by the 50th.

    I finally finally finally got my criss-crossing garland. That, plus the Believe fireworks really makes it Christmas.

    It really felt odd, not having that last year.

    Do they turn off the lights of the criss-crossing garland, when the snow begins?

    I love every shot - I took over 600 pictures in the 3 days that I was there last week. You can never get enough.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Actually, I'm still hoping to get some pointers from you and others around here. Over half of my shots are blurier (is that a real adjective?) than heck. I need to figure out this pesky business of apertures. I was looking at Daddyb's yesterday, and holy shmokes! And Aniko always has these incredible shots of the fireworks. Technically, my camera belongs to my school as I talked them into getting it for me. "Ummm....yeah. I need this camera because I'll be taking lots of shots for our department website." :

    But when I save up some REAL money...that Canon Rebel XT thing sounds like just the one. As soon as someone gives me Boardwalk in the McDonalds monopoly game, I'll be all set.

    It is. I PERSONALLY take it to Disneyland for...um...official department business. And so far...no one else in the department has used it yet. Why...it's almost as if they didn't even know we had it. :

    Ergo....it's Mah-een!

    I keep meaning to tell them...but I'm just so darn busy...

    I've already told.....but fortunately for me, no one cares! It's all in the timing. It went something like this...


    "Hey guys... We own a Nikon D50 in case anyone wants to use it."

    "Uh-huh."
    "That's nice."
    "Whatever."
    "Would you PLEASE go away and leave us alone!"

    So...you see my dilema.

    I guess I'll just have to keep taking it to Disneyland.
