Even after 13 years of Christmas in the southern hemisphere, I still miss the cold and dark of a British Christmas. Today we went to Musk, near Daylesford for what has become our annual tradition to buy our Christmas tree from the same Christmas tree farm. In total opposite to the UK, the day was sunny, with blue skies and I was in a t-shirt…just the thing for an image in near infrared 🙂

My god! Is that a real photo? Those trees are perfect. Daylesford is a gorgeous part of the world. How wonderful that you moved from the UK to somewhere so fabulous!
The trees are really beautiful – they put a lot of work in during the year to trim them to perfection 🙂
I had no idea the places like this existed. The type of real Christmas tree that I know of, is the scraggly mess lying on the side of the ground on a highway, that is being sold to raise money for the scouts etc!
Excellent image, Lisa, very striking! As well as all the bright areas and the dark sky, I really like the circular black shadows below the trees – they have a really surreal look. I recall sunny Christmases in Kenya too – they were very pleasant, with Christmas dinner outside etc, but they seemed a little unreal. Adrian
Thanks Adrian, yes I was pleased with the shadows 🙂
Nice photo, Lisa. The closest to a white Christmas you’ll see in Sydney is if you make the effort to go to a beach.
Thanks LD – it has actually snowed once in December down here (only for a few minutes) after one of the those full on cool changes!!
They look so sanatised and fluffy, I could cuddle them. Quite deceptive.
Yes! You certainly nailed it with this shot…just perfect.
Thank you very much 😀 It was good to get the IR camera out – has been a long time!
Too long indeed!
Hi Lis. Some people will do anything for a white Christmas! Very clever. All the best for the season .
Yes! And to you too
😀 Merry Christmas to you!
and to you!
I, too, am dreaming of a cold, white Christmas!! Fingers crossed but not hopeful …
Love the image!
Thank you! I hope you get a white one – we just had four days around 40C or 104F in your world!
You’re winning me over with IR! 🙂 These are a great subject and the ‘white christmas’ result works really well.
This year we won’t even have a cold Christmas …. mild, grey and muddy 😦
Hello Noeline, and thank you 🙂 We’ve just endured a record heat wave as we shouldn’t get these temps until Jan or Feb…hope you have a good one whatever the weather brings 🙂
