Hey Steve

Xmas card perfect .. its an amazing bit of work and all those lights got me wondering about how many bulbs were being used to light that thing ?

It looks pretty sharp at that exposure !

Cheers

Thanks for the kind comments guys.

The "lights" are actually thousand of small LED lights on nets that are draped over and the same gray-beige color of the huge castle walls. The nets are almost invisible during the daytime. At night they shine different colored spotlights on the castle walls to change the castle to appear any color they want. During the Christmas show when the princess wishes for ice on the castle, they light up the LED nets section by section. You have to see it in person to see how impressive is the effect.

Here is the castle in daytime. The Christmas light nets are practically invisible then, you only notice them when you are up close to the castle.

Thanks Ted, Eric, Lordje. I guess I'm just playing a shrill for the Florida Tourist Association. LOL.

Anyone who wants to come on down, let me know and maybe I can play tour guide for a day.
