Christmas Night Scenes

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.--Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993) preacher and author

Here are a couple night shots of beautifully-adorned downtown Elizabethton, TN. In the shot to the right, I left the shutter open seven seconds to capture the taillights as the car traveled around the Veteran's War Monument. The 65 foot tall monument, which honors Carter County veterans from all wars from the Revolutionary War to the present day, was constructed in 1912. [click photos to enlarge]
