A Surprising Shot - Weekend Reflections

I was experimenting with taking photos of light - in low light. The only light in the room was coming from the gas fireplace and the Christmas tree. I snapped a couple of the fireplace, thinking that they wouldn't be much to see. I was surprised when I transfered the pics to the computer.


The fireplace photo itself isn't great, but what an interesting reflection! The Christmas tree on the fireplace glass, with a reflection of the reflection. The snowflakes in the upper section are actually lights in our front windows, which are coverd with semi-transparent blinds.

Wowow! Feels warm and cozy. The light found its place on top of the Christmas tree too, am I right?
