The 1:00am shot is a tad more abstract, sporting bokeh snowflakes illuminated by a street lamp and one green "spot" (for lack of better term...maybe piece?) of bokeh from a nearby green motion detecting light.
And here is the nearby snow covered mountain that I woke up to. I must sled down that. I must. Also, I must get a better telephoto lens. I'm shooting with a really old, less than great quality 70-300mm. I'm looking into the 70-200 f4L series Canon lens. Not the version with image stabilization. Any thoughts? Should I just save up and get the stabilized model?
