Winter Comforts [39/366]

Another cold, snowy day today -- the perfect weather for a cup of a tea and a good book.


This is the first time I've successfully gotten a shot of steam, so I'm pretty pleased with that even if there were a few things not quite right on this I had to fix in post. The shot itself was a bit frustrating as I only have one strobe and this is really a two or more light shot (I ended up using the flashlight on my phone as the main light). I also had to raid one of my son's toys for charged AA batteries (gotten remember to charge the dead ones promptly). But in the end it was a great learning experience.


The book, by the way, is Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I'm about 1/3 of the way through and absolutely loving it. Highly, highly recommended.
