Denver's City and County Building puts on a spectacular annual holiday light display. Unfortunately, the city isn't very accommodating to us photographers. The best light is at dusk, but the lights don't go on until total darkness. To get both the beautiful dusk sky and the light display I had to combine two images. The first shot, taken before the lights came on, captured the great color and interesting clouds in the sky, as well as adding detail in the statue. The second shot captured the holiday lights. I combined the two images using software designed to create startrails from multiple 30-second exposures. The results surpassed my expectations!
