This is an olive tree in the parking lot at our hotel in Los Angeles. Its branches were twined with white lights. I was playing with a motion technique one of my teachers, Carol Leigh, offered in one of her recent Creative Edge Alumni posts which is to shoot from a moving car (my husband was driving). This shot is pretty cool, I think! I did have to adjust levels and saturation a bit because the camera sensor was overwhelmed with all the lights in this quick grab shot and the RAW image was quite washed out.
