Winter Light Spectacular

  • to
  • Lehigh Valley Zoo

    5150 Game Preserve Rd, Schnecksville, PA (map)

    40.658112 -75.622943

  • Look for Jason holding a tripod.
  • Wake up from your tryptophan induced post Thanksgiving slumber* and come out to photograph the holiday lights at the Lehigh Valley Zoo. Admission on a Wednesday is $11, but Chris Williams gave us $2.00 off passes!

    From the zoo: " Guests will experience eight distinctly-themed display areas, popular holiday movies, a new Grinch Who-ville Scene setting, additional light tunnels, cozy fire pits, giant snow globes, a live reindeer and treat stations featuring seasonal favorites s’mores and hot chocolate, hotdog's [sic], sausage and more. All in all, Winter Light Spectacular features nearly one million energy conserving lights and surround sound music."

    First: Dress for the cold. This means gloves too.

    Second: Bring a tripod. Tripods get really cold in the winter (see above).

    Third: Bring a remote shutter release or learn how to set your camera's timer for 2 seconds. We will be doing long exposures in the dark (but not as long as you might think).

    This is a roam where you want event, though Jason is available for instruction if needed.

    Visit the zoo's page here if you'd like to learn more.

    *Chicken actually contains more tryptophan than turkey and has little or nothing to do with one's sleepiness after a Thanksgiving day meal. No misinformation gets posted on my watch. :)

    Yes. Pay at the zoo and meetup initially. I'm not sure the weather is going to cooperate, however.
