Let it snow…

snowman-mini

…for real.  Not this cool, fake WordPress snow.  Although it is pretty cool, especially with my little snowman.  I think I now have my Christmas card photo.  Unless I decide to go with the frosty leaves.  Today I shall have both of them printed and then I will start assembling the cards.  Maybe I’ll base the photo selection on who actually gets the card.  Now there’s a thought!  Mom – you’ll just have to wait and see which one arrives in the mail.

I actually had to get down on the ground for this one and hold the camera and my breath.  It was a fairly long exposure, too, since it was at night.  I just hope the neighbors weren’t watching.  I’m sure watching me get back up was hilarious.

  2. Yep, this is a perfect shot for a Christmas card, a wonderful perspective and the snow adding that little extra ingredient to make it special on the screen. Love your accompanying text, which made me chuckle.
