O Christmas Tree by pflaume

O Christmas Tree

We spent the week of Christmas in the mountains and the cabin across the way had this lighted tree out front. I admired it for a couple of days and finally decided to get a shot. I found an angle that did not include the house because I loved the "out in the woods" feeling of this scene. It was a very dark and cold night (10 degrees F!). The only light here is from the glowing Christmas tree.
A million faves.

I actually just got up and closed the venetian blinds, turned out the lights in my office, and plugged in my big external monitor to get the full effect with this on black.

Just phenomenal.

I was just remembering that another shot of yours had deeply affected me when I was doing this project before, and lo and behold I found it in just a couple of clicks. And I said a similar thing! How funny. http://365project.org/pflaume/365/2013-09-27
