The Christmas tree outside Saltaire's Victoria Hall would have benefited from a few more lights, I think - especially as it has to compete with the floodlighting of the magnificent Italianate facade of the Hall. (Compare with my picture two years ago.) Nevertheless, when I was out with my tripod the other night I felt it was worthy of a photo. I'm still practising both the use of the tripod and my new camera's settings for night photography. It always feels bit of an effort to go out, especially on a cold evening - but I do like night shots and it's something I'd like to learn to do well. I'm fortunate that several of Saltare's public buildings are floodlit at night so there are subjects right on my doorstep.
