20 photos of Christmas, Day 3 | Lights' reflection on a retention pond

Yes, trespassing was required to get this photo.

Note: Because I was raised in New England, Christmas is different in Florida, but it's still Christmas nonetheless. And I need to convince myself of that. So, in the next 20 days, including the holiday itself, I intend to find Christmas here in Brevard County and portray it through a different photo each day.

Driving through a subdivision in Rockledge, just north of Melbourne, I spotted a house display's reflection on a retention pond. In this scene, I chose to focus on the train. This is a six-second exposure.

My intent with many of these photos is to portray a scene that both represents Florida and Christmas. And retention ponds scream Florida.
