Christmas Decorations

Outside and Inside Christmas Decorations

My granddaughter took most of these photos in the late afternoon.  She is taking a photography class in high school and wanted to experience what it would be like to have a DSLR.  Hopefully, she will get one someday. I had the camera set on AF and no flash.

On Friday I went to the local camera store. I wrote down what they suggested to do to capture the lights in the evening.  AV at F8.0 Wide Angle lens at 400 ISO.
I need some camera lessons soon.......

An early Christmas with our son and his beautiful family.....

This village is in the entry way of their home.

On the hearth of their fireplace

My daughter-in-law loves Snowmen and has a wonderful collection.
