Dear all,

Every year we try to run a special holidays themed contest here at CRPhotography, so here we are, at it again! This year we're making things extra simple and generic so you can all easily participate:

Christmas Day (Christian)

Boxing Day (Australian, Canadian, English, Irish)
Kwanzaa (African American)
Omisoka (Japanese)
Yule (Pagan)
Saturnalia (Pagan)

The Rules:

  • Your entry must be a NEW photograph, BOTH taken AND posted onto DA after this journal has been published (so if you can include exif data that's great)

  • Your entry must be somehow related to the holiday season.

  • If you think it might be unclear how your entry is related to the holidays, feel free to include an explanatory paragraph in your deviation.

  • To enter, leave a comment on this journal with a link/thumbnail to your deviation.

For some reason DA says this was taken January 28th 2016 when...I didn't own the camera I took this with in 2016. On Flickr it says I took some images in March 2016 as well which is really bizarre. I swear I'm not lying about this I took a bunch of pictures after work one day because my workplace does this Christmas thing and I DEFINITELY didn't get off work, nor was it THIS DARK at 7 'o clock in the morning. retrospect that probably means I need to adjust the time on my camera or something.

Yule 2017
At Yule we gather in the dark to await the rising sun - we sing to it as it rises and speak of hope for the coming year. This picture is before the sun rose as some geese came to join me that morning.
