This is my tree. I have photographed it many times.

Congrats on the ribbon. I love this, it is just so pretty! You are deserving to 'own' the tree. The tree is lucky to have you.

Nice tree, nice quote, nice photo. Congratulations, Richard. This is almost Oriental in the shape of the tree and in the overall composition, isn't it?

Congratulations, thought it might be yours, to tell the truth I've never noticed you photograph this before. No vote under 5, how rare these days!

Gorgeous scenery! Kind of wish you left more room above, tree seems to be squished into the frame somewhat. Nevertheless you're in my top picks.

This is very well photographed and I suspect many will vote this into a front page finish. My only criticism (very minor at that) is that the tree could benefit from some selective sharpening. It looks to me to be equally sharp with the background, something that I doubt was true when you were on site. Still, I think this photo is a strong contender. 7

This is my all time favorite. It's well composed and the snow only enhances the tree and view in the background. I would love to be there. Gorgeous!
