From my home I can see Mt Rainier and the Cascade mountain range. Last weekend I looked out my window and saw that it had snowed on the lower hills. So we, okay, I decided we should run up and try to get a photo for this years Christmas card.
I set the self timer on my camera and went to work setting up the scene. I realized it was too sunny in this area so we moved across the way in the shade of the trees.
My husband really is a great sport!
Here he is thinking about all the things he's going to get from me for doing this...See the little smirk on his face?
It wasn't all that bad for him, we stopped for make out sessions.
Feel free to do this amongst yourselves!
We highly recommend it.
This is the photo I picked...Or so I thought.
I darkened around the edges and wasn't sure which one I liked better-Most my friends on Facebook liked the first one. Then my friend Tristan from the blog Tristan Time suggested turning it black and white and leaving the bulbs colored. That was a GREAT idea and I couldn't believe I didn't think of it. Problem was, I didn't know how to do it. That morning she wrote me and said she was bored, to send the photo to her...
Within a couple of minutes she sent this back to me! Isn't it cute? Thanks so much Tristan we love it. She even sent me one without the text for ordering cards that already have a saying on them.
If I had to do it all over again AND we might go back up there... I'd buy the biggest colored bulbs and use a 50 foot strand instead of these which are medium size and only 24 ft long. Just in case you are wondering...We used a 50ft extension cord and plugged it into the outlet in the back of our truck.
