Christmas Tree

I was really trying to get a nice photo of the Christmas tree. I was experimenting to get the angle I wanted, I knew it was too late to get the glow in the sky I wanted. But, the thing I like about this photo is the turn signal of the car that was going around the corner. The yellow dashed line was created by that moving blinking light. It made for an interesting (if not terribly beautiful) photo.

This tree has been the Christmas Tree in Santa Barbara for many years. During the Christmas parade they put a huge cut tree in the middle of state street too. But this is the one that is the most impressive. We were a little worried about it, the parking lot that it used to sit on was changed into a Ralph's Grocery store a couple of years ago. But, they made a really nice garden around the tree and kept a nice space for it. Seems like that would not be a problem in California, but our local government seems to hate large trees even though the people who pay them want to keep them.
