xmas tree

In my snap, the tree has fallen over. A bit like me in the dark last night in between cloud and clear patches. The neighbours are polite about all this; you don't have to be mad to take fotos at 3 in the morning, but... Managed a few shots before it vanished behind the león dormido. Until the westerlies came to dry us out at around 01:00, I thought the condensation was going to dissolve the camera. 2600 light years distant, this is quite pretty.
