The 59th annual Carol of Lights was last Friday (Dec, 1), and, as always, it was a beautiful display. If you weren't able to make it in person, a good friend of mine with Texas Tech allowed me to use his pictures of the event. These are pretty exclusive and up close shots, too.

Jeff Ramazani, a buddy I've known for many years in Lubbock media, now works for Texas Tech. He's also really good with a camera and has worked for local TV stations for many years. So when I saw his pics of the Carol of Lights, I wanted to share them with everybody.

I couldn't make it to the event this year, but I felt like I was there with his pictures. And he has kindly allowed me to use them to show you the event up close and personal. Enjoy.
