Light Festival at Sofiero Castle

On our Halloween night we didn't get dressed up in costumes, we did however get bundled up to spend several hours walking around in the cold. The Sofiero Castle put on an impressive light show this year for the Halloween weekend. Even before we arrived we knew it was going to be very crowded because the bus ride there was completely full. The entire event made for a challenge to shoot. There were hundreds of people on narrow walkways not understanding why you are just standing directly in the middle of the path, bright colorful trees against an extremely dark surrounding and wind blurring the trees in long exposures. I'm still happy with most of the results and so happy that I got to see it in person. Thank you M for the idea! Its was one of my birthday gifts from her. London is the second gift, which we leave this Friday. I will make a blog post for that trip as well.
