Liverpool Christmas Lantern Parade

Since today is the 1st of December I wanted to post something a little Christmasy. I was tempted to post a Christmasy picture each day till the 25th but I figured everyone would be bored by then, so I’ll post as I would and save anything truely Christmas like for the week leading up. Last night the German Market in Liverpool was opened and they had a Lantern Parade around the city centre. The group were really good. It was tricky getting good shots with the low-light and flash. This was also my first time using Spot Metering on the 30D. It worked very well for the most part.
