Everything is prepared here: Snow outside, the house decorated. Yesterday Vanessa fixed our balcony decoration made of pine branches, a chain of small lights and red balls made of glass… one fell down and disappeared in the snow though.
It was already quite dark outside. To give more light I put the flash in our room pointing at the ceiling. Through the 2 windows to the balcony the effect was like a big softbox giving very natural light.
