I was going to take a nice Christmas lights photo tonight, but I forgot my tripod. So, I was stuck doing an "interesting" shot instead of a pretty one. This particular light display had us really baffled, until I downloaded it to my computer and studied it further. It is actually an angel blowing a horn, but a lot of the lights are burned out. Cory still thinks it is a turkey, though.
Strobist has a good blog post about photographing Christmas lights that I recommend checking out.
