Christmas at Huis ten Bosch

I wouldn't want to pay the electric bill at Huis ten Bosch this month! Seven million lights are on through the end of February.
People were posing with that lighted heart in the midst of this LED carousel.
We didn't even attempt to go up the clock tower that day. It was the Emperor's birthday, so the park was crowded.

The photo above and the one below were taken at the Huis ten Bosch Palace. There is a separate charge to get in. I personally thought that the Light Art Garden in the main part of the park was a better light show, but the Palace light show includes a concert. The lights at the palace are timed with songs by ABBA and Billy Joel amongst others.

Before you buy into Canon's latest "low light" claim for their Powershot camera, take a look at these photos taken in the low light setting. They looked fine in the view finder, but they look horrible once I downloaded them.
The light display this year was different enough to bring us in again, so if you went last year, you may want to return.
