A Merry Christmas Morning - 359/365

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.  This image was one of the first things I laid my eyes on Christmas morning.  I grabbed my camera and snapped a few images before I started making Christmas breakfast.  

I am a bit late posting images for two reasons.  First, I am trying to spend more time with family than my pictures.  Second, I broke the hard drive that I brought with me that every single image is stored on since August so I've been grumpy about it.  Fortunately the data seems to still be there so I will get it recovered once I am back in Calgary.  Even if it can't be recovered on the drive, I subscribe to an on-line backup service.  I checked, and all but the last two days before the crash are backed up so the loss will be very minimal.   I have decided to get a drobo after this experience.

This is a three image HDR processed in HDR Efex and LightRoom.
