Ohhhhhhhh WOW...this image is just spectacular Bill! I love the light on the doorway that allows for the outline of the tree to show off all its branches..also, that hint of light coming from the horizon is a bit magical. All in all Bill...this image is fabulous!!!

Bill, I save the word "awesome" for photos such as this.
I especially love the subdued lighting on the horizon, which offsets the brightly-lit wreath and windows perfectly.
What a special, beautifully composed image.
May your Christmas be as peaceful as the feeling in this photograph.
