Merry Christmas to all TE members who are celebrating.
Its a joyful time of year, winter is upon us, and while it may be cold outside, hopefully its warm within all of our hearts :)
Perhaps not a true 'Christmas' photo, but I wanted to participate in the winter season. Please take a look at the WS photos as well.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Tu nous gâtes avec ces trois belles images de neige! la contre-plongée de ton post principal donne un résultat très spectaculaire.

maybe not a true Christmas photo, without colourful lights or santa, but there are trees and snow, and it is that counts. We still haven't snow this winter :(. it is joyful time. Splendid to see Tosca :).
have a nice day

On dirait que les grands pins de la Colombie Britannique se sont mis au garde à vous devant toi et ta caméra pour nous offrir le spectacle de l'hiver canadien dans ce qu'il a de plus naturel et spectaculaire.
jacquest (17749) 2013-12-26 6:05
Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures presenting the quietness of your landscape and it's majesty.
patpatch (1089) 2013-12-26 6:29
A very nice picture and a really impressive point of view.
The vertical frame suits perfectly and brings a strong effect to the shot.
Good composition,contrast and sharpness.
chrislo (3719) 2013-12-26 7:28
This is an incredible perspective. The low viewpoint along with the wide angle lens gives the trees a majestic air of superiority. The play of light through the branches is well captured and makes for a pleasant composition. Definitely a very interesting photo.
holmertz (34489) 2013-12-26 8:49
This is most certainly not a "Christmas photo", at least not suitable for North-Western Europe this year, when there seems to have been heavy rain and strong winds everywhere. For every other time of the year this is a perfect shot of the tall pine trees stretching towards the sky covered with snow. This is real winter looking the way winters should be,
ikeharel (48218) 2013-12-26 9:57
Superb use of the backlight-effect through the tall trees, and good view upwards.
Evidence that snow grow on trees...
Fine shot, cold yet charming.
ChrisJ (93344) 2013-12-26 11:51
Excellent graphic elements and repetition offered here by the tall dark trees. Love the low shooting angle and exaggerated wide angled perspective. Good sharpness and minimalist colors. The blue sky is the icing on the cake! Have a great weekend!
siudzi (29611) 2013-12-26 12:56
Absolutely spectacular winter series you have taken! Your main post is marvelous and the trees were photographed with superb sense of perspective and depth. Stunning view as well as your presentation. Bravo!
mcmtanyel (8123) 2013-12-26 22:27
Merry Christmas to you, too! You have captured the ideal Christmas trees with the ideal ornaments: ones in their natural habitat decorated with snow.
Noel_Byrne (17103) 2013-12-27 2:29
It's a true Christmas photo to me, snow like this is a real rarity and seeing as. Don't have many forests it's even better still. I love the angle in the main post looking upwards, showing the majesty of the trees, but I also love the middle post in the workshop, it's like being in a snow globe. This looks like yeti country too :) beautiful light too.
Best wishes for the season!
P.s thanks for your comment on my Christmas post, and I read your note about there being no people. I looked hard and that is weird because the place was packed! They must have all hidden when they seen my camera. Cheers again.
dkmurphys (44553) 2013-12-27 5:06
Simple and very beautiful image for the Christmas celebration. Hope you had a great time.
worldcitizen (6111) 2013-12-27 13:17
I hope you had a great Christmas. You found a nice winter image after all. :-) The snow looks much prettier out in the open, or on the trees, instead of as clumps of brown mush in the city! Those are some tall trees, and I like the bit of sunny, blue sky at the top, too.
Gigidusud (12139) 2013-12-27 13:52
Beautiful Christmas postcard! Impressive snowy trees and nice WS too. Well done!
Thanks and best wishes!
bukitgolfb301 (33706) 2013-12-27 17:48

love the perspective created by looking up towards the sky. the trees are stunning and the contrast of their dark trunks and branches against the white snow is fantastic.
happy new year,

I missed this wintery shot Craig but it is a like a cool refreshing antidote to the heat here in Namibia... sitting with the air-con blasting away and looking at this is blissful. I wish you and your loved ones a truly wonderful 2014 and I look forward to seeing what the new year brings forth from your camera! Rosemary

Great effect of wide angle lens, in addition to the low point of view and the vertical framing. Stunning !
marina7 (8003) 2014-01-06 12:17
are you really having so much snow? And the perfect blue sky to top it... I envy you, that's the real Christmas weather as it should be.
Fantastic fir trees (are these fir trees? too huge for our place). The upward perspective is super too.
Merry Russian Christmas to you!
chantelley (103) 2014-01-12 13:28
great shot! The trees are so huge and inspiring!
