Winding down the year...

Posted by karla (Omaha, United States) on 30 December 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

With the hope that you are not already weary of the holiday, I am posting a series of images from Christmas. For me, it all officially began on Dec. 24th and ends on Epiphany, which is Jan. 6. Most outdoor images were taken after a spectacularly beautiful snowfall which lasted several days and then disappeared. Enjoy! :)

Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions for improvement are very much appreciated.

All my images are owned/copyrighted by me and no one is allowed to use them in any form or format unless I have been contacted first to give written permission for a specific use. Thanks!

Love the 'naturalness' here - for me, it wins every time.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you, Ronnie. I had in mind for a few years now to take a picture of this tree. It's on one of my main routes, and is the first to be lit for the season by the people who own that home. The tree used to be smaller, of course, and one year was damaged by a storm. Hence it leans a bit, and is no longer perfectly shaped. But so it goes with everything!
