See the Possibilities

I took this image last night for two reasons.The first was to see what it might look like with luminaries here in the winter, and the second was to illustrate what you can do with a little imagination and effort.The top photo is what I envisioned here and the bottom is what it looked like when I first got there. As the light level drops, the colors change and the interplay of light and dark changes and becomes more balanced and there is a certain point where everything is as close as possible to perfect. I knew I wanted to light the trees to reflect in the water and was kind of surprised my tablet and remote worked this far from the camera when I was all the way over at the trees with my flash. I also used my tablet to operate the camera on live view to see exactly where to place the luminaries when I had only myself to rely on to place them before it got dark. A few luminaries on the left would have been nice but I did not have time to put any there. The land owner also was very helpful by hiding the cars at the farm on the right.
