Great Second Life Destinations: State Celebrating the Season at Kylie Jaxxon's Holiday Trace



The fresh snows and holiday lights of early Winter are a very short season in Second Life -- with Spring coming early to most destinations in mid-January.  Although there is no snow where I live in South Florida, and very little in the way of below 77 degree (25 celsius) temperature at any time, I can celebrate my love of winter snows at classic Second Life destinations, including  Kylie Jaxxon's new Holiday Trace.



Kylie has a deft touch with landscaping and village placement that is entirely natural and not exaggerated -- you get a sense of being at an actual real world location here that is missing from many other Second Life destinations.

You can visit the Holiday Trace here:

All photography was done with the regional light setting and a silver reflective light effect with indian summer highlights over at Google's Color Efex Software which is available as a post-process free download and which I wrote about there:
