What a fine perspective, Hilda!

Wow, Christmas. We Americans have just put away our pumpkins from Halloween, have our Thanksgiving holiday in 14 days and most of us are being assaulted in malls and retail stores with Christmas. It does seem to get earlier and earlier each year...even for those of us who absolutely love everything about the Christmas holiday and season.

These trees are beautiful Hilda. Great shot!!

such a creative skywatch Hilda! I was desperate all day looking since we have nothing but pale grey skies here today and lots of rain! I am still undecided.
Usually I hate it when Christmas is pushed early. This year I don't mind so much.

That's stunning, Hilda. I'm not much of a Christmas shopper so it bums me out to see decorations this early but I still like the effect.

Jacob said...

Nicely done! Can't believe people are putting up Christmas trees already, but they're doing the same thing here!

Pam said...

Nice shot looking up to the sky. The trees look really unique.

Cezar and Léia said...

wow it's a modern decoration!
Here I don't know much about the tradition but for sure they should be decoration in front of houses and inside malls but I could see any done yet...maybe next week!

I do love Christmas time!
