    Nice job.

  • thanks, stan! between you & me, it kind of falls short of the real thing. am a bit disappointed that i couldn’t capture it. :(

  • thank you, my friend, for your kind words! still trying to figure out where i fell short on this one…think i should have cropped out the pond?

    Nice one Victoria beautiful comp with the benches its been a few years since I been out there now I have to go !

  • well worth a walk thru, curt. thank you so very much for your positive comment. when you go, if you walk the trails, stay in the middle, avoiding any wheel tracks! even tho they don’t look deep, they are old frozen puddles. bruno (my dog) & i both became airborne, landing in a heap of large furry dog & parka-clad woman – what a site! glad the camera was in the car @ that point!!!

    When I lived in Romania yes, very much…Since when I live in Rome…never!…:-) I miss the snow!

  • you’re right, there’s nothing like it. of course you don’t get to wear a big, heavy coat, hat, mittens and boots and carry a snow shovel in roma!!!! lol on that note, i believe i’ll go out and shovel now (really!!)
