We had a lot of snow in Utah yesterday, just in time for Christmas! When I got home last night I noticed the air was nice and calm, and it wasn’t very cold and, after shoveling snow and dragging my trash to the curb I looked over at one of the houses in my cul-de-sac and the lights in my neighbor’s yard really caught my eye. So I went to my house and grabbed my camera and tripod and got this shot. I just love how the lights glow under the fresh snow right after a storm.

    I agree with Ryan. I could stare at this picture for hours. I love the colors, and how you at first don’t realize the lights are underneath the snow. Then it’s an “ohhhh!” reaction.
