My Christmas Card! Yours?

  1. I want to take the opportunity to wish you all a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year, mine will be spent driving in Arizona, Nevada and California, hope for some good shots to share when I get back!

    I have to say that this year (even I) have learnt a lot and I think I'm a lot better Photograper. Highlights of the Photoyear for me was the 3 day session with Ron Reznick in Yosemite, a trip to San Diego and I snuck in a day at Bolsa Chica and of course joining NikonCafe in February. I want to thank you all and especially Frank, Patrick and the Moderators for providing such a wonderful environment to share experiences and get new friends from all over the world.

    Every year I use one of my photos as a Christmas card, with some twist to it, and this years shot was taken last Christmas, the first together with my wife Melanie and my two step daughters Gwen and Meredyth (we where married last year!) They wanted to buy a tree but I pointed out that we have some on our lot that we where planning to take down anyway and therefore here it is:

    The ugliest Christmas tree ever! The shot was taken with my D2H, and a Russian Manual lens, Helios 85mm F1.5, without any flash, WB all wrong, still pretty cool I think! No idea what F stop or speed .....
    original.
     
  2. Wonderful Andreas. I would love to send these to a few insurance people who only contact me once a year, with a Christmas card.

    Merry Christmas, happy holidays and happy new year. Have fun on your trips and be safe.
     
  3. Thank you Audreas and Merry Christmas to you too.
     
  4. Thank you Andreas. It was a real pleasure to get to shoot with you a while back at Juanita. I still am hoping to get up your way as well. It also looks like you had a great outing with Bill the other day. Merry Christmas to you and your new family. Take care my friend.
