Christmas in Victoria

Uploaded: December 17, 2013 16:35:02



I don't do a lot of photography at night as I feel it is not safe.
This Christmas image is from 2012 & it was raining so I had to hold an umbrella over my camera and myself, in 7km winds, using my glove on a low lamp post as a tripod. So I'm very happy with the results.
