Today is officially “put up the Christmas tree day”, one of the most exciting days of the year for the kiddies.

It’s been weighing on our minds this year about what to get the kids for Christmas. Seeing as we’ll be living in a caravan next year, there’s only a limited amount of “stuff” that can logically fit on our Christmas lists.

We think we have it all figured out though, and today, it was time for the kids to pull out the box of decorations and the tree, and get to work making the house Christmas-y!

It’s strange to think that next year we won’t have a house, or a tree this size, and it’s all a bit of unknown just where we’ll be next year for Christmas. It’s the kind of unknown that’s exciting, but also the kind of unknown that makes me stop and appreciate this special Christmas, this time together before we head off on our big adventure.

So to get you all in the Christmas spirit, here’s the unveiling of the tree :)

  1. Such beautiful photos. What setting on your camera is that? Look forward to reading about your travels and being totally jealous :)

    • Thanks so much Lisa. I just took a look in Lightroom at what my settings were and they were:

      Shot in RAW – ISO of between 2000 and 3200 shot at f1.8 and between 1/100 – 1/160 sec

      I was using my D700 and 50 1.4 lens

      I’ve been missing photography a bit lately, and hadn’t pulled out my 50 1.4 in a while but it’s a great little lens for getting low light shots without the flash :)

  2. hi. Yes, I was wondering about your camera too. What type do you have? You have some beautiful pictures.

    • Hi Sian,

      Thanks so much for dropping by.

      My camera is a Nikon D700 and the lens I used for these shots was a 50 1.4 I also have a 24-70 2.8 that I use A LOT! Also in my arsenal is a 70-200 2.8 which I don’t use so much but is a beautiful (although heavy) lens.

      These were all shot using the settings I mentioned above:

      Shot in RAW – ISO of between 2000 and 3200 shot at f1.8 and between 1/100 – 1/160 sec

      I was using my D700 and 50 1.4 lens

      Then imported into Lightroom to convert and edit them.

      Thank you for the compliments it means a lot x
