Christmas is overwhelming us this year, with friends coming from east and west to join us for the special season. We got our tree this morning at the Fredericton Farmers' Market, decorated it this afternoon and, by this evening, it was dancing above a flood of beautifully wrapped parcels.
This is another tripod shot, with the Olympus set at f8 at 6 seconds. The lights on the tree provide helpful and dramatic lighting and the ornaments add subtle but neat reflections. It's hard to take a bad Christmas tree shot, if you ask me, so I'm glad I took the easy route here.
