I visited the Grotto in Portland last night with my wife and in-laws for the Festival of Lights. It was a beautiful night without any rain. The amount of lights and decoration reminded me of the Griswald house from the movie "Christmas Vacation". I took a few nice HDR photos with some long exposures. I still have a couple more shots to work on. Here's a shot of the church all lit up and the blue strip on the right side is actually light projected on the elevator shaft that goes up to the top of the cliff. More pictures from the Grotto are on my Flickr Photostream.
