I enjoy photography of all kinds. If it was how I supported my family financially, it would be a dream come true.

    My house is just behind the tree on the left… I wish :D
    This looks so magical, I feel like a big kid. Love the lone trial of footprints in the snow, were they yours?

  • You would love to live here. It’s very woodsy in this area and the houses are huge. They are all made of brick or stone. The footprints are animal tracks of some kind. The straight line of track towards the middle of the frame are either a mouse jumping along or a chipmunk perhaps.

    Adam, Very nice, I find these difficult to shoot!

  • Exposure is pretty easy. The LCD is your friend. If it looks to dark, expose it some more. If it looks too light, expose the other way. It’s the focusing in the dark that can be tricky. I just focus on lights 1/3 the distance away between me and the horizon and stay with a small aperture like f16 or f14.

    Ohh that is so pretty, love the colour and it’s just so festive :-))))))) awesome

  • It was so beautifully set up. It was a pleasure to shoot, except for the cold wind on my bare hands. When they started getting numb, it was time to go.
