The cost for the Christmas on the Pecos river cruise varies by age and day of the week.  Children 12 and under ride for $10 Sunday through Thursday, $15 on Friday and Saturday.  For 13 and up the cost is $15 in the cheap nights and $20 during the prime Friday and Saturday evenings.

Photographically speaking, this is a great place to test your skills.  Ideally, outdoor Christmas lights should be photographed while the sky still has some light in it after sunset, but this wasn’t an option here.  Since the sky was dark, I now had to rely upon water reflections to add interest and depth to the photos, and I had to do so at fairly slow shutter speed on a moving boat.

The photo gallery below will give you an idea of what can be accomplished, and tomorrow I’ll give you some more technical data on the camera settings used.
