This effect was achieved by shooting Christmas lights through a drinking glass.
This picture, like many of my others, are available for purchase - either as a digital download ($2.99) or as a professional quality print. And there are a lot of options for the prints - different materials, sizes, and frames. At reasonable prices. They can be shipped worldwide - though I think it may be too late for it to arrive by Christmas (unless you're celebrating the Orthodox Christmas dates , January 7th...) Still. I'd like to think that they'd make nice gifts.
And my portion of the proceeds of these sales is given to the Salvation Army of Newton, Iowa. You get nice artwork, and the Salvation Army gets more money to continue its work in Jasper County.
