9 Muses Musing - LIGHTS

~ winter shadows ~

~ winter shadows ~ by Nordljus (LonelyLibrarian)

If you've read my recent muse university post, you know that I love the lights of the holiday season. It doesn't matter what kind... they bring a spot of brightness and cheer into our otherwise long dark nights this time of year in the northern hemisphere. There are so many ways to capture and portray the season in lights!

For today's giveaway, I'm sponsoring a spot in my new online course:
Find Your Eye: A photo course with heart and soul, which starts 9 Jan 2011. 
Link in or comment today for a chance to win!

I look forward to seeing your submissions for the prompt: LIGHTS.
Please link your blog or flickr url in the link provided below.

Your creative holiday prompt for tomorrow is: BELLS.

wishing you a bright holiday,
kat of The Kat Eye View of the World

I was so looking forward to start with 9 Muses Musing yesterday and then I completely missed it, and when I opened the blog this morning to catch up, what a surprise to see a very familiar photo apprearing before my eyes! Thank you for chosing my picture for featuring on the blog for today's prompt! :-)
That night was the first time that I tried out my new 50mm lens which I had just bought the day before, and I absolutely love it! As I already missed yesterday and will probably be too busy to take any photos today, I'm posting one taken at the same night for today's prompt. I'm looking forward to the next 16 days and hope to keep up :-)

The more light the better in these short days of winter. I am very inspired by all the creative takes on this theme.

Night photography is something I really need to work on. I don't think my old camera is up to it. I love looking at all the beautiful images that linked up.
