Yule Tree

Filed under: Home,Photography — Tags: , — ecogeek @ 12:49 am

For the first time in a few years we’ve put the tree and decorations up.  We’re feeling pretty good and one of the signs of that is Yule Tree!

Also, this is the first live tree that Chelsea and I have bought together (Also as adults, but those are simultaneous(Nested Parentheses note, I totally nailed the spelling of simultaneous.  I had to look up to see if I had it spelled correctly and I did!))

So here are some pics I took and played with, (Because I’m Michael, that is what I do)

First a regular picture with lights on:

Tree Lights on.

Next we have it with lights off:

Tree lights off.

Now we get into some HDR.  First is with lights on:

HDR tree lights on.

And last we have HDR with lights off:

Pictures! How will you ever contain your enthusiasm?! (The interrobang should totally be a thing)

I like this shot around the corner.

Cute cats.  I like catching them like this.

First of two leaves shots.  I love the contrast of the dark bark and light leaves.

I love how it looks like the colors are “bleeding” off or alternatively like someone airbrushed yellow around the green.  I’ll think of it like that.  Little fairies with little fairy airbrush tool.  That’s a busy job.  Good thing they only have to do it once a year.

Picture of yarn I took at Borealis.  I was fiddling with aperture sizes and depth of field. (That’s aperture sizes, not Aperture Science.  Different.)

From pretty leaves to this.  Which, in my opinion has it’s own kind of beauty.  You can almost hear the land growing quiet for winter.  Settling in.
