    Christmas lights in downtown Truckee, California


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     schralper had seen this display on Truckee's main road a couple of days before he decided to take a picture of it. "As a photographer I like the colors and lights and all of the seasonal night time photo opportunities," 44-year-old schralper says.

    The Californian city of Truckee is relatively close to ski resorts, and is often visited by tourists. Schralper says his town adds a few more lights each year, and is normally a place covered in snow around Christmas time. "Truckee gets an average of more than 200 inches of snow a year, so it is somewhat unusual that there isn't any snow in this Christmas shot."

    Lovely Christmas display in historic Truckee, CA.

    I wanted to balance the the exposures between the holiday lights and the evening sky. Venus was just a bonus.
