To whomever this reaches, an electronic version of our holiday card:

The five of us, on the beach

Peace
Stay warm.

I took the picture last August at sunset on First Encounter Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod, specifically trying to get a shot that would work for a card. I used a Nikon ML-L3 remote so I could take lots of pictures without getting up to click the self-timer shutter. You can see I have the remote in my hand, clicking it with my thumb.

My brother Patrick did the photo editing needed to make the original shot usable:

Happy 2008, everybody!
