Yesterday we decided to visit the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden to see the Christmas lights. We got there early and it was still light outside. Some of my photos have digital noise, there was not enough lighting and I bumped the ISO up to 6400. My camera doesn’t do too well at a high ISO, and for me I rather have some noise than blurry images. All images and video clips were shot with a Canon T2i and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens.
The Orchid tree composed of more than 300 orchids.
At 16 feet tall the tree only includes orchids and ferns on a metal frame. One of the most spectacular aspects of the tree is the vast number of varieties of orchids.

I was photographing my niece, she is right in the center of the waterfalls.
To get a clean sharp image of the Christmas lights a tripod is a must and I saw many photographers walking around with a tripod last night. The next 4 images of the Christmas lights were shot at manual mode, f/6.3 to f/8, exposure time 15 sec to 30 sec, ISO100, and tripod mounted.
The coffee bar area is a lot warmer than outside. I only stayed in here for a few minutes and headed back outside to shoot some videos.
They have crafts for the children also.
Lee purchased a dragonfly wooden ornament.
