Thank you both. Eventually I'll find the time to take my new gear off the property and find more interesting subjects. But in the mean time....

It is quite beautiful. Of course,my being of Italian descent has nothing to do with my opinion. )

Happy Holidays.

Thanks Antonio. My father was stationed at Ramstein Air Base in early to mid 50's. He and my mother traveled through much of Europe at that time. This Murano glass tree is one of only a few items they brought back that remains after all these years. The photo does not do it justice. It's a beautiful piece of art. It is carefully unwrapped and displayed this time of year in loving memory of Parry and Isabel. Merry Christmas.

Thanks Adam. We're decorating this week-end so the tree will once again see the light of day.
