Merry Christmas From Twin Cities Daily Photo

Almost Christmas here in my part of the world, it's officially the 'eve' now as I feverishly wrap the remaining gifts for my family. This is a photo of my mom and dads fireplace that they have decorated quite nicely with a mirror and a ton of candles. It gives a very nice warmth without having a blazing fire.

Merry Christmas to all!

Clever idea, slinger. I have a few candles in my fireplace but I think I'll borrow their idea and use a mirror and more candles. Happy holidays!! PS. Who's profile in the mirror?

the profile is an uncle of mine. The mirror does add a great effect when you are standing, my angle was quite low and didn't give a good reflection of the candles when one normally looks at it. I was using a chair as a tripod, so I had to take the low angle and avoid using a flash.

I tried it and I know the grandkids will love it. I need a bigger mirror and more candles tho.

Nice picture Slinger, we all seem to be struggling with a lack of snow this year.

"Noël est là,
Ce joyeux Noël, des cadeaux plein les bras,
Qui réchauffe nos coeurs et apporte la joie,
Jour des plus beaux souvenirs,
Plus beau jour de l'année."
Washington Irving


“Christmas is there,
This Merry Christmas, gifts full arms,
Who heats our hearts and brings the joy,
Day of the most beautiful memories,
More beautiful day of the year."

Hey slinger! I finally opened a blogger account just so I could comment on this shot. This is awesome, one of the coolest shots I have seen on your photoblog. Great job with the lighting and the colors!
