The painted tree

Today we finished decorating the Christmas tree, we thought most of the decs were in France but we managed to cobble and create enough items together to make a rather splendid adornment to the front window. Finishing touches were some dried orange slices, terracotta hearts and the angel complete with tiara all made by Cath.
On the baking front we knocked out a dozen mince pies and a slightly below par lemon cake.
Once it was all in place I set up the camera on a tripod and used a really long exposure of around 10 seconds with all the room lights off I “painted” the tree with light using a small torch quite a fun technique, white balance was tungsten or incandescent to maintain the warm feel to the image.
