After procrastinating going to Garden Lights for a whole month, today is the day!
The unbelievably warm weather leaves me no excuse to postpone this any later. Also it's a good chance to try night photography, although this is slightly sadistic since my X10 has a tiny sensor. Nonetheless I am impressed with it's results, as it did produce a legible image of tree branches against the dark sky at ISO1000, f2.2, and 2s shutter speed. Sure it's not a usable image with all the noise, but woah I can make out the branches really well.
Below are more successful photos, there's also a couple more over on Facebook (but the butchered IQ...cringe):
