Wow! Last night I stopped by the outdoor mall and tried to take photos of the trees and lights against the sunset. My photos are nowhere near as amazing as yours! Plus, there are no palm trees in Nebraska.
Thanks, it was chance timing with the sun just gone down and the lighting changing. I loved the contrast of the palm trees with the Christmas tree, a unique touch. I would have walked away without this last photo except my son took one from this angle on his phone and it came out spectacularly. Then, of course, I had to try it on my camera - so glad I did. One of those special moments that come, and then fade if we don't catch them.
