Longview Christmas Lights on Lake Sacajawea, 2013

Photos by Michael Broschat

Evidently, each year the Pioneer Lions Club of Longview, Washington decorates “its” island on Lake Sacajawea. The results were pretty stunning, the other night, when I first saw them, so I took advantage of some clear weather and photographed the island, walking all around it from 5 to 6 pm.

The nearly motionless water made a near-perfect mirror for the island lights.

And then there was my street. I live on 23rd Ave, which is apparently one of those streets where years ago everyone agreed to decorate for Christmas. The following photographs were taken Christmas Eve 2013.
