Yesterday with somewhat mild temperatures we ventured out to the Fallowfield Tree farm to get out Christmas tree. Since it was Saydee's birthday we wanted to bring her along as well. I think getting the Tree and then decorating it is my absolute favourite Christmas Tradition. Saydee wasn't too sure about it, but I loved the Clydesdale horses that pulled the wagon out to farm area. It just all seemed so Canadian: hot chocolate by the fire pit, horse drawn sleigh rides, and lumberjack looking guys :)
Once again this year the city's top bureaucrats and politicians showed up for the Hope Live gala evening in support of Fertile Future. People show up when Canadian TV personality Rick Mercer is hosting the event. Here are some of my favourite pictures of the evening some of which were published in a recent edition of Hello magazine.
With temperatures warming up to -1C I knew that it would be foggy this morning which meant that my usual walk through the woods might be quite interesting. Here are my favourite shots. They have been processed in LR5 and with Nik ColorEfex. Thanks for visiting.
This morning's walk along the Jock River was simply magical with the 24 centimetres of snow that fell overnight. I really didn't want to come back home! I must say I'm also in love with my new Fuji X-E2. Who would have thought you could take such nice images with something just a bit bigger than my iPhone !
