Photo Tips Night Reflections at SeaWorld Christmas Celebration

Love trying more things and stretching my photographic knowledge of my camera by going out and shooting pictures. With a small camera, it goes every where with me so I can shoot and capture my environment. Taking night pictures again at SeaWorld was on my mine after these first three. From above of the whole Ice Skating rink was my goal. Last year I saw a capture someone else got and thought next year I would go upstairs. I watch the Ice Skating show twice this night. The balcony shots are the early show. Love these. Have fun looking. Which are your favorites? What is it you like about them?

Love this blue and the reflections. The lighted tables are so cool to see at night. The bags of light are plastic with light bulbs but gives the neighborhood look and feel to this Christmas Market Area of SeaWorld Christmas Celebration

Funny when taking the pictures the focus for me were the lighted trees. Later seeing the reflections it was gorgeous. A Serendipity accident to create a simply wonderful Christmas card like picture – my favorite – wait until you see the next one

Now isn’t that really lovely with the fountains sprouting up in colors, the creek bridge and color light trees all reflecting into the Ice Skating rink. Another great surprise. The surprise helps me remember the next time to capture things on purpose. Learning from the serendipity moments is so important for creating even better pictures.

Now these next three are from the Balcony of Bayside Stadium where my intent was to capture the color of the fountains as they played in time with the music along with the colors on the stage that changed too. Synchronizing my shots with the rise of the water was more challenging than anticipated. Continue clicking. Pushing the button and your eye seeing the water rise are not in sync – just shoot!

Love the colors in the one above. The fountains just aren’t high enough but it does have a nice Christmas Card Feeling. Seeing the after spray of fountains as they retreat back into the pipes creates a night effect. The Sea Trees Reflecting in the background just adds nice depth.

Love the snowflakes on the Ice Rink. The green fountains are a nice focal point to bring the viewer into the picture and through it left to right or right to left. Snowflakes bring your eye to the center. The view from below is very different in its joyous wonder.

The height of the fountains is fantastic with the White Birch trees on the Stage peppered with color lighted trees. My only wish was this had all the colors of the fountains but I still like it. Most of the trees even the Sea of Trees are white at this point. The snowman in the lower right has a spot light on him. It just has a great Christmas feel for a place in Florida.

Welcome 2012! Great shows!!
