Christmas Photo Journey // Day Ten: Twinkle Twinkle

Photo prompt from Paper Coterie:

Twinkle, Twinkle:
Twinkle lights, fantasy, wishing and whimsy; they are all a part of the season. The trick is translating the ambiance we see with our eyes and the glow we feel in our hearts into effective photographic images. Don't be afraid to let the light in for shots that sparkle! An extra slow shutter speed (way beyond what you can normally hold by hand) can make for amazing photos that shine! Try capturing something today that twinkles!

This is what Christmas lights look like through my camera’s eye with a slow shutter speed…while I am driving! I love the energy in this photo but would like to experiment more and try some “twinkling” effects. I didn't have much time on this day, so I will definitely revisit this prompt for more fun with Christmas lights!
