Major League Baseball's 2009 World Series teams depicted in pumpkins at the Enchanted Beaver Lake event in the Beaver Lake Nature Center near Baldwinsville, New York.
Attended the Enchanted Beaver Lake annual event and walked past some 500 lighted pumpkins carved with traditional Halloween favorites like Jack-O-Lanterns, witches, ghouls and ghosts to sports teams and movie characters. The trails were dark with only the lighted pumpkins available which added to the enjoyment of the event. The hot cider and fresh donuts helped, too!
The night was cold so Beaver Lake had a special campfire going to keep people warmed up.
I used the same technique I use for photographing Christmas lights which I wrote about on my Disney photo blog to photograph these pumpkins.
The largest pumpkin had a place of honor overlooking the festivities. He seemed a bit of a joker type to me.

The pumpkin bonfire is outstanding! (The photo and the idea – I’m stealing it shamelessly for next year. In fact, I may have to have a Thanksgiving hayride party and use it then.)
I won’t tell if you don’t. I really thought it was a very clever idea.
Great photos Scott! I´l go and read your christmasphoto tips.
It surely must have been a wonderful sight with so many lighted pumpkins .
Hope the tips help, Birgitte.
These are really great! (The pictures AND the pumpkins!)
Really neat carving, and thanks to the link for Christmas lightning, I need to learn more about night photography.
Oh, night photography is fun. You’ll get hooked fast.
Great pumpkins Scott.
The tradition with pumpkins and halloween came to Denmark only few years ago. 15 perhaps? I remember it from the cartoon series ‘Peanuts’.
Do you eat any of the pumpkins or the seeds? We roasted some of the seeds with salt. They were good.
I didn’t carve and of these pumpkins so I didn’t partake of any seeds. Donuts…had some of them.
These are so fun. This type of shot is so hard to technically complete.
I had a lot of duds but, the ones that worked (like these), came out great.
Fun shots Scott, these are very creative, thanks for sharing them !!
You’re welcome, Bernie! Thanks for stopping by!
