Good Morning, today is Christmas! Looking at our tree it was time to recreate something I saw online where you would perform a long exposure of the tree while adjusting the zoom ring.
this was a bit dark so had to adjust aperture
With my first attempt I dialed in the camera to f22, a 6 second exposure, and iso 200. The results were ok but very dark. After a few more captures I found f8 and a 4 second exposure resulted in captures that looked good.

Bonus, Ballon Dog Ornament
Even on holidays, there still is time to create.
