Every year we got to the Detroit zoo Christmas light display they put on. They decorate a pretty large portion of the front part of the zoo and have I believe a couple million lights in total. They really do just a beautiful job of it. Takes well over 90 mins to walk through and take it all in. Just got back home and thought I'd share a few of the pics with you guys.

Awesome light display.  BTW, those are some great photos.  I would think night would be a challenge.  Thanks for the pictures.  Now, when is the car show next year? Enjoy looking at the muscle cars from my younger days.

Thanks. Yes Christmas lights can be a difficult thing to shoot crisp pics. Actually any night pics without a flash can be hard. I shot these with a lower f stop of about 3.5. 1/25 shutter speed and ISO of 400 all from a monopod and probably 90% of them came out really well. Also used an 8 point star filter on the lens which makes for some nice effects with Christmas lights.
