This is how the other half gets around in these parts. This is Huntington Harbor decked out for the holidays.

I couldn't make up my mind between Elvis Presley, The Platters or Marty Robbins, so I went with Marty Robbins. Check out Prop #1

"Harbor Lights"
(written by J. Kennedy & H. Williams

I saw the harbor lights
They only told me we were parting
The same old harbor lights
That once brought you to me

I watched the harbor lights
How could I help it, tears were falling
Some other harbor lights
Will steal your love from me

I longed to hold you close
And kiss you just once more
But you were on the ship
And I was on the shore
Now I'll know lonely nights
For all the while my heart is whispering
Some other harbor lights
Will steal your love from me

Some other harbor lights
Will steal your love from me

    Awww....terrific shot and song, Ron. I'm a little confused, however; is that a Santa or a lobster on the roof next to that tree?????

    Thanks for the comments! I think it's actually a lobster in a Santa suit up there on that roof. This was a 15 second exposure. That's what gave the water that really cool, ice-like appearance. Ya just gotta have a tripod! R

    Nice shot, Ron. A tirpod makes all the difference. Nice sharp shot and lovely lights. I like the way they're reflected in the water. Nice work.
