Looking Back At A Christmas Day Miracle

Merry Christmas to All

December 25, 2004

It started snowing on Christmas Eve around 9pm. It was a miracle happening before our eyes… A white Christmas. Everyone in the family got dressed in warm clothes and went out to play…

It was a sight unexpected, unpredicted… unprecedented. Everyone danced and cavorted late into the early morning hours. I stayed up watching the snow fall, drifting in hypnotising swirls¬†through the spotlight over the kitchen window until just after midnight. Wanting to make sure we actually had snowfall on Christmas Day.

I expected it all to melt by morning.

So while the family slept in on Christmas morning, a totally unheard of event, I dressed and wandered out with my camera… And entered a winter wonderland, a Christmas Miracle, a snow covered Christmas. It was beautiful.


I was walking along the bayou behind my house a few years back and came across this spider at the edge of the woods. It was late in the day and the sun was setting behind the web…It made for a very dramatic shot.
