Your spectacular Christmas decorations
Christmas lights in downtown Truckee, California
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."

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