Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me...Psalms 51:10
This is just a practice shot next to the tree...I never realized that posing with a Christmas tree could be so difficult...I tried different poses and one was in front of the tree which didn't look right...because I wanted the tree to be the focal point, not me:) My hubby said he would pose with me tomorrow , if I have it all set up ahead of time so today I used the bear as a prop and that was fine as I am just experimenting. At least I got the tree decorated today and that's one job done!!!
We are having a snow storm and tomorrow more snow is predicted in the forecast.

    Christmas trees are kinda cranky, aren't they? Wonderful shot, Andrea. You are upstairs, right? The steep pitch of the ceiling/roof is designed to handle all that snow. Please post some outdoor shots if you are having a big storm.

    Great shot with a lot of warmth! Hope your storm is not TOO bad! I guess you folks in the frozen North are used to this. This is not in my vocabulary!

    Nice portrait - good use of light, and the mirror reflection. I'd say this is a keeper.

    This is so beautiful and elegant looking. I never thought about putting a Christmas tree in the bedroom before, it looks very nice and cozy in there.

    It is so cold here and saw snow on top of the mountains. Great sp, Andrea. I just got our christmas light today. I hope to put it up tomorrow.

    Your tree is beautiful and this is a wonderful SP!! Trees are awkward to capture and the lights create a challenge as well. Excellent SP!!

    All net, no rim. I'd have put this one in reflections.

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen said (12 Dec 2009):

    Thank you everyone for your comments. I think I will take your advice and place this in the reflections theme, John...I did have another one for that theme but this shows more of the reflection in the mirror.

    Such a fun SP, Andrea. A couple of weeks ago we actually got some snow in Dallas. Today it felt like spring. Warmer temp, though, won't last this time of year.
