Hunter Valley Gardens is staging a fantastic lights display for the fourth year right now. I travelled with friends on an hour and bit bus-trip, arriving near 8pm (daylight-saving-time). We took advantage of that time up our sleeve before the night-lights would be most effective, by buying ourselves a great hot coffee and churros; taking in our surrounds from this open-grassed area near the lake.
I've never taken photographs at night before, and had no idea quite what would be the best setting on my camera. So while these in the following link, are by no means great quality photographs, they remain my photographic record right here sharing some of what we saw last night.
