Our two-hour drive to a christmas tree farm in Sandpoint, Idaho left us feeling low after learning our scheduled Santa Claus cancelled last-minute. Christmas magic occurred though as this man crossed our path at just the right time. He agreed to wear my children's deceased father's Santa suit as per tradition, but left on his rugged vest and sweatshirt. We followed him to wear he lived on a Christmas tree farm in an 8x12' shack and took pictures of him with my children. He was kind and genuine and I'm pretty sure that we met the real Santa. This image was photographed with a Canon 70-200 f/2.8 lens.
