Weekend Reflections: Christmas Lights

Christmas and New Year's have come and gone; but I was away for the holidays and can't resist posting this image of the reflection of my daughter's Christmas tree in her living room window. I love the bokeh the lights produce. I didn't notice until I downloaded the photo but if you look closely in the top left corner you can also see the beginning of the evening sunset through the trees.

Interesting. I'm glad you pointed out the sunset because I probably wouldn't have noticed.

This is a wonderful reflection of the Christmas tree lights. And that sun in the corner is a wonderful bonus.

Isn't it great when we see something new and exciting on a photo we have taken --after we download it??? The sunset is such a nice addition...

Great picture ---and fabulous reflections.

Beautiful composition-- I love the red curtain hanging to one side. It makes the image rich.

Lovely -- it never hurts to be reminded of that beautiful time of year (and of your nice visit with family). Isn't it fun to find something you didn't know was there when you download -- I can see the sunset there!)
