The weekend after Thanksgiving I went in search of holiday events to take photos for my annual Christmas card. I stumbled upon Cornerstone Sonoma--a collection of gardens, shops, restaurants, and wine tasting rooms--just on the edge of Wine Country in Sonoma, California. They would have their "Lighting of the Snowmen" festival that evening, but I went up a little early to explore. Most of these I took during the day before the holiday festivities begun. As it would turn out, I chose one of the photos I took of "Garden Play" to use as my Christmas card and skipped on the ones I took at the actual holiday event!
All photos taken with my D300s and 17-55 f/2.8 or 85 f/1.4.
