Love me some Bokeh, looks so magical and so easy to achieve! Its really just an out of focus picture of lights or any blurred background! LOL

love the colours!

Wikipidia has this to say about Bokeh :

n photography, bokeh (pronounced /bɒkɛ/[1]) is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur,[3][4][5] in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light."[6] Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting—"good" and "bad" bokeh, respectively.[2] Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions.

some suki loving

focus is not tack sharp as my ISO was high!!! to get a low apperture f1.8

You can also have fun playing with filters to get effects like this! So easy and fun. This website is great for showing you how to achieve Bokeh and using filters.

using a star filter

Go grab your camera and have some fun with your Christmas lights before you take the tree down  tonight!
Have a great evening what ever you are doing. We are having a quiet night in, never been known but looking forward to it.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year from mine to yours.
