I was hoping to post this about a week before Christmas, but some last minute changes (light color, added mist on the water) led me to render it one more time. I hope you enjoy it and have a wonderful Holiday!!

"Silent Night"
This is one of my Christmas favorites, too. Beautiful!

"Currently Using..."
One of my all time favorites. Using it instead of "O Night Divine" Looks more realistic.

"Silent Night (Merry Christmas 2015)"
Howdy Ryan _ a stunning creation that captures the essence and beauty of the season. The 3D angle and light composition and depth draw one's eye to the center, the focal point 'the blue lit tree.'

This looks fabulous on an iPhone 6+ lock screen. The colors pop and it almost glows.

"For a year round wallpaper"
I wish for a pickle jar version with the lights turned off. I mean, just a nighttime forest landscape so that the trees on the background would not be any lighter or darker. I always prefer peaceful wallpapers with preferably a single color and not too sharp variations in brightness.

"Finally, the recent trend of grain is missing"
This is one of the few in a long run where the new love of hyper grain/sharpness has been toned down. I like this one a lot and I hope it's a sign of things to come.

"My new Christmas favourite"
since I have found Digital Blasphemy years before, bluexmas was always my christmas favourite. But this one could be my new christmas favourite. Thank you for your outstanding work all the years.

"Nice but"
Make the water frozen... glare ice with maybe some snow near the shore.

Yay, multiscreens! I understand the render time, but was afraid you simply wouldn't do the multiscreens because of it. Thanks so much!

Sun January 3, 2016 at 10:33 am

Yes, thank you Ryan! We're still within the 12 days of Christmas, so still quite appropriate and has been applied to my desktop. Lots of positive comments from friends and family about this one.

Sat January 2, 2016 at 7:49 pm

Big thank you Ryan :) the multiscreens are just in time :)

Sat January 2, 2016 at 4:39 pm

I'm sorry I wasn't able to post the multiscreen versions sooner. The single-screen was barely ready by Christmas eve and if I had rendered the multiscreen version first neither would have been ready by Christmas.

I started the multiscreen version rendering as soon as I posted the single but then we flew out of Illinois for Florida on Christmas day. The render was finished when I returned home last evening and it is up in the gallery this morning. Better late than never?

"Worth the wait"
What a thought provoking piece, such a mood influence this one. Your changes were worth the wait, bloody excellent!

Would not be Christmas without one of your blue Christmas trees.

Mon December 28, 2015 at 0:34 am

"Another Masterpiece"
Love this rendering! Any chance for a multi-screen resolution in the future?

Sat December 26, 2015 at 7:06 pm

"Beautifully Christmas.."
Such a wonderful, breathtaking place. I feel Christmas surrounding me. Thank you!

"Silent Night"
Wonderful! The kind of place I'd love to sit down and meditate on life. Imagine finding a tree like this during the winter!

Thu December 24, 2015 at 6:17 pm

Very peaceful. Merry Christmas!

"Christmas memories"
This brings back a lot of memories for me so I have now put this as my number one Christmas background. Very serene. Very true to its name.

Thu December 24, 2015 at 12:33 pm

"Silent Night"
So very lovely! The detail is so precise. Another great Christmas wallpaper. Thanks for your effort to get this done in time. It was worth it. Happy Holidays, and the best New Year ever.

I love how well you hid the generator and power cord!!! :)

It's absolutely beautiful Ryan, thank you so very much for sharing this with us! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to your whole family!

Once again you've made a wonderful work of art that captures a beautiful sublime moment.

Thank you and Merry Christmas

Although having known your work for so many years, you still never fail to amaze me with your beautiful pictures.

Merry christmas and all the best to you and your family.

Thu December 24, 2015 at 4:05 am

"Very realistic"
Thank you Ryan

It is a beautiful peaceful scene and the light effects are just right.

Thank you for the wonderful renders you have done over the past 12 months and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Thu December 24, 2015 at 1:15 am

Already on my desktop and cell. Words fail me...

Wed December 23, 2015 at 10:36 pm

It's already on my desktop. Thank you again for a beautiful render. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 10:27 pm

"Thanks for the holiday gift"
Another beautiful image, Ryan. Happy holidays!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 9:44 pm

"Just in time"
Wow Dan, you've done it again. Takes my breath away.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 9:36 pm

"Silent Night (Merry Christmas 2015!)"
The scene is beautiful! I love it!!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 9:29 pm

"What a lovely gift..."
Thanks SO much Ryan, it's amazing! Definitely the best Christmas gift I've gotten this year. May you & your family have a wonderful holiday season!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 7:52 pm

"Thanks Ryan!!"
This gift from Ryan made my day seeing the update. Your skill and insight continue to amaze me after all these years. And I know, the best is yet to come! Merry Christmas Ryan and family.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 7:13 pm

"Silent Night"
BEAUTIFUL! Wow, Ryan, this is stunning. Merry Christmas!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 7:00 pm

What a wonderful Christmas present for all your fans. I love the predecessors of this render: Blue Christmas in 1999 and 2002, Season of Light in 2005, and Yuletide in 2000 and 2007. And now this spectacular photorealistic work of art. Bravo! Great way to end the year!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 6:22 pm

"Wow "
Ryan, I've been a lifetime member for about 9 years, now, so I'm very familiar with your db library. I must say, this could be your greatest Christmas picture to date. It's absolutely perfect.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 6:18 pm

Beautiful, multiscreen asap please!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 6:16 pm

Man, this is outstanding! I'm hoping that the multiscreen renders come soon. Right now I'm using "Beneath" to get my winter feel, and keep the colours that I love.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 5:56 pm

"Merry Christmas"
This is the Best Christmas Wallpaper in the Gallery. It Looks so real like a real Picture.

Merry Christmas from Germany and a happy New Year.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 5:42 pm

Love the re-do! Is it not available in 3840x1080 like others are?

Happy holidays to you and your beautiful family, Ryan!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 5:31 pm

My favorite color! :) I love the fresh reboot, Ryan. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 5:09 pm

"Merry Christmas to us!"
Beautiful! Might just replace "Yuletide 2007" as my fave.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 5:07 pm

Great picture! Keep up the good work. Hoping to see dual screen versions soon!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 5:00 pm

"Love the blue"
Blue is so great. Love the blue in this scene. The mist looming in the trees is also very nice.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 4:54 pm

"Merry Christmas "
Lovely, nicely balanced, but it would look even better with a simple white star at the top, right now it looks like it's missing something.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 4:54 pm

"Perfect for Xmas 2015!"
The enveloping fog in the background is perfect for the bizaar weather we are having this winter. (Am in Maine with NO snow!) This image will forever remind me of the winter of 2015. Ever so fitting! Thank you Ryan!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 4:50 pm

"Ode to Blue Christmas 1999"
That's actually the version I was using this year. I think it's time for a change. Nice work!

Wed December 23, 2015 at 4:43 pm

Looking good

"Return to the blue!"
BLUE=AWESOME. That's all.

Wed December 23, 2015 at 4:39 pm

"Blue Xmas"
Nice, instantly reminded me of Blue Christmas from 2002 (13 years ago!!).
