This year our Christmas Tree was taller than ever. Our Great Hall is 9 metres (30 feet) to the ceiling and the tree shot up 23 feet (7 metres). Jennifer spent a couple of weeks decorating it climbing on the scaffolds that we raised with the help of Mikee and Eric. This year we had candy canes and lots of Santa Claus figures (“jultomtar”) in the tree.
Notice Eric sitting at the fireplace in the second image. The exposure was 10 seconds and he had to sit absolutely still, while I shot the picture! The rest of the family (Jennifer, Magnus and Claudia) were just finishing the last of the Christmas lunch, while I was trying to figure out how to include all of the tree in the image. I have used an extreme wide angle lens to capture it all.
