20 photos of Christmas, Day 5 | Golden lights during the golden hour

I again took advantage of bokeh for the lights, with the camera's focus on the sunlit clouds in the background.

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.

Today, it rained, so there will be no same-day Christmas photo because I didn't feel like getting wet or shooting inside. So this edition comes from a few days ago when Melbourne experienced a rather pretty sunset. I took this shot of icicle lights in the downtown area on Monday. But it's not my intention for all 20 photos to be of lights, so that will change soon.

Earlier editions
Day 1: A lighted bush and the bokeh effect
Day 2: The city tree at warp speed
Day 3: Lights' reflection on a retention pond
Day 4: More than just seasonal colors
