The Cooper Christmas Trees 2009

After scaling back on our Christmas decorations last year due to trying to sell our house, we went all out this year. We gave the 4 foot tree that was our only tree last year to the kids to decorate. We placed it in their they don't need a night light.

Our original 7.5 foot tree that always seemed huge before is just right in front of our fireplace. It had 450 twinkling lights, and I think it looks better than ever. I also love the new technique that I learned for photographing the lights. I can't wait to try it out with the kids in front of the tree.
For a really dramatic effect, I left the tree spinning (we have a rotating base) and used a really long shutter speed. I think it looks cool.

Wow, what a great photo, I think it is amazing. I saw pictures of Brian's decorating skills on his facebook page, and it is really nice. I linked it, and have several who have commented on how nice it looks.
