Merry Christmas!

This is a holly tree taken during our blizzard last weekend. The snow is still on the ground, making this the first white Christmas they have experienced.

Merry Christmas Michael,
A fitting photo for the season. Love the contrasting green and red colors against the snow. Nicely composed with just the right exposure! Holly is a favorite of mine in the winter months, because the vivid colors always seem to cheer me up when everything else seems to be brown and gray.
The last time I visited Virginia I was amazed by the amount of holly I found growing naturally in the woods I was hiking. We don't find holly growing in the wild here in Ohio, so this was a real treat for me.
