Merry Christmas World


In an earlier post, I mentioned making Christmas cards from older shots I had found in my digital library.

Well, here you go. I made this one for you.

I snapped this photo of the pond at dawn in February 2009 with a little Olympus pocket camera.
There was a power outage (due to the heavy ice) so we boiled coffee on the stove.
The air was still and thin, painted in pale shades of blue as far as the eye could see. The world lay silent, other than the cracking of limbs all around us.
It was absolutely enchanting.

Here’s wishing you all, each and everyone, a very Merry Christmas.
