This is one of my favorite Christmas images. It was late one evening and I was out looking for something to shoot that spoke to the season when I came upon these guys working at the christmas tree stand in Waterfront Park. I liked the way the wet street was reflecting the lights in the stand and the strong colors that were present in the scene.

Whenever I can I like to include the people who work behind the scene to enrich our lives. These guys looked so comfortable with each other and for me their friendship showed in the way they walked and talked as they went about their job tending the stand. I hope those of you who stop by here today enjoy this photo and that it speaks to you as it did to me.

With that I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas; I hope the day brings you joy, friendship, happiness and lots of egg nog, cookies and fruitcake. 😉

BTW for those who are interested the image was processed in Topaz Adjust and Aperture 3 from a single exposure.

  1. Beautiful Nick….you are so right….the wet pavement amazingly accents the colors of the scene and the the Christmas scene. WELL DONE!

  2. Merry Christmas to you also. Happy photo shooting in 2014. I look forward to your work every week, and I am sure it will be fabulous next year.

    1. Thanks Ellen, I’ve been under the weather since Christmas and neglecting my blog. The antibiotics seem to finally be doing their job and I hope to get back in the fray soon.
