Christmas Ornaments Courtesy of Nature!

Real Estate Agent with Albuquerque Homes Realty 16572

This is Mother Natures very own Christmas tree.  I took this shot because of the vibrant young pine cones adorning this beautiful pine.

Just perfect, don’t you think?

One could suppose that those were the true origin of the concept of Christmas ornaments. Have a good holiday season!

I agree! John that would be a beautiful holiday card to send out. I have 3 pines out in my front drive area, they are so pretty, especially after a light snow.

Beautiful photo, John.  As others have said, it would make a beautiful holiday card.  You should enter it in the holiday card contest.

Beautiful photo. The grandkids are probably too young to appreciate it, but when they're older they'll certainly treasure copies of your digital archives.

Hey John.  I do love your naturally decorated tree.  And I like the twinkling natural lights coming from the background.  Hopefully you will have some flocking to go with that tree soon.

Hi John, I would have to say, Yes, It is Positively Perfect! Mother Nature provides so many things we know exist yet we hardly ever observe because we know they are there but fail to see. Brilliant!

Hi Jerry,  You are very kind, but I just take the picture the subject provided my a very gifted power!

Thanks Brad!

Hi Vince, That was all this photo needed was a dusting of snow to adorn natures tree!

J &R,  I completely agree.  The simple beauty is right in front of us, all we have to do is open our eyes and enjoy!

Hi Doug,  Nature really does have a way to make it all come together in perfect harmony.

Hi R & A, Well wish I could see this tree and where the shot was taken daily but this was taken in Northern NM high in the wilderness..Wish I was there right now

Hi Marge,  Couldn't have said it better!  And you better now mess with Momma Nature!  Wasnt that butter or something?

Hi Pam,  Thank you for for the kudos and suggest!  These cones really do look more like strawberries, very delicate and bright. Hope your Holiday is splendid!

Rebecca,  Mother Nature has it figured out in the beauty department!

Hi Larry n Jacque.  We have been told before to use our shots for cards. Maybe we should give it a whirl one day.

Hi Roy,  Repeat my comment to Larrry and Jacque..LOL

Hello Toni,  It was just too pretty not to capture, glad everyone is enjoying it as much as we do!

Hi Tammy,  Wow Im getting plenty of encouragment about my photography. Thank you for your kindness!

Hello Dorie,  With all the plugs on the Shot maybe I should make a Christmas card..LOL  Thanks for your encouragement!

Hi Anita,  I know I enjoy taking photos and I never considered it a talent..Mmm maybe I should branch out..:>)  I better stick to Real Estate!

Thank you Barbara!

Hey Dagny,  I'm getting that a lot on this photo..I'm getting inspired!  Thank you!

Hi Jeanean,  I will have to explore the Card Contest..Is that in AR?

Hi Debby,  We did a bit of snow last night, the mountain got a bunch but the valley just a dusting.  We went out to see the River of Lights last night while it was snowing.. We could use a lot more to overcome our severe deficit of moisture this year.

Hey Than,  Well I had not thought of feeding the critters but why not!

Hi Kristine!  Took your good advise and changed my background to this photo.  Thank you for the idea and your encouragement! 

Debbie, Enjoyed sharing with everyone!

Craig,  Agreed, there is just something about nature that makes everything come together perfectly!

Michael,  You know I think you have something there.  The true origins of Christmas ornaments!

Hi L&S,  Glad you two enjoyed it, we sure enjoyed the day we took it!

Hi Chery,  I think I mentioned earlier a light dusting of snow on this shot would have been perfect!

Roger..Thank you Sir!

Hi Peggy,   I need to seek out this Card Contest..I'm inspired now!  Thanks!

Erica..Common theme today, I better investigate!

Blessing to you and well David!

Hi Vickie,  We have lots of photos should the Grand kids every take an interest.

Hi Belinda,  I bet there will be some flocking going on soon!

Josh,  Flowers, Pine cones and just about anything else she produces!

Hi Richard,  I don't know about all that gifted stuff but I do enjoy capturing those events that catch my eye.  Best wishes to you as well Richard!

Gretchen,  Man made is awesome for sure, Some of the most beautiful things I have seen come from mans hands.  But man cant do this.

Hi William,  I think we all need to take the time so SEE the beauty of nature and Gods glory!

Hello Judith,  This was just put in front of me, I just had to have the ability to click the shutter!

Joni,  Glad you liked it!  Wish it was in my yard!

Karen,  Thank so much for your kindness and encouragement.
