“Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.”
Arnold Newman, (3 March 1918, New York, NY —6 June 2006, New York, NY) was an American photographer, noted for his “environmental portraits” of artists and politicians.

    I am just helplessly happy when I see a snowy reflection. The pale silvers are so beautiful here, Joanne. Lovely!

    This is beautiful, Joanne. Very artistic and nicely balanced. I really like how you have focused on the reflection of the tree and “framed” it with the icy shoreline.
    Well done.
