Zoolights at the Oregon Zoo in Portland, OR is a very popular event. Every year they decorate the zoo in an amazing array of lights.The results are beautiful.
It's no suprise that they use LED lights for most of the displays, they use far less power and last a lot longer. They can be a bit of a challenge for photographers though. They're tiny, but very bright. Long exposures often result in "lens flare", and you need to be careful in picking settings to minimize that.The zoo comes alive as you walk through this winter wonderland of more than a million lights. This winter festival includes our lighted zoo train, choral and ensemble music, and our fantastic gift shop. Closed Dec. 24 and 25.
