Perhaps the thing I like best about this time of year is the lights. It's wonderful walking through the misty darkness at suppertime and seeing the brightness. I can't say that I like the new LED lights though. To me they're just gloomy and weird looking. The photo above is taken through the leaded glass of my front door and its homemade wreath, to the lights on the outside of the house.
I haven't tried taking many photos of lights but this one from the truck parade pleased me with its abstract lines of color. You can see more images of lights here.
