[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The real Santa paddles his way down from the North Pole in a canoe....that other guy with the flying sleigh is just an imposter :-)

All the best of seasonal wishes to friends at Trek-Lens....I hope to make more frequent stops here in the new year .

This is from an original daytime picture "slightly" modified with Photoshop for Christmas :-)

Hi Derek, i like this picture and the idea behind.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you as well.
bye alex

Hi Derek. This is a real Christmas present to have you back here again. Thanks.
I love your photo with Santa rowing up the river all dressed in his special clothes, and even with a reflection. The moon are stars are excellent. Very good post processing. Love it.
I hope you have a safe and happy holiday.

I like all the different blues you have in this card Derek, and I think Santa's colours make a freat contrast. Nice job.

A very Happy Christmas to you too.


Nice use of colors and composition. Santa a nice red dot in the middle, the moon like a winters sun and the blue gives an icy atmosphere. Like your card and Merry Christmas too!
