This is somewhat old (five years ago this month), but I think it works well for the holiday season. This is from a snowshoeing trip at Gold Lake, located near the Willamette Pass in central Oregon. I could not feel my fingers when I took the shot, and my tripod kept sliding around on the frozen snow, so my expectations were nil. When I returned home and looked at my shots, I was very surprised to discover that this one was actually worth keeping!
(The sections of the lake where the reflections were obscured were covered with ice.)
