A smashing grainy and gritty mono image which sums up the harsh winter better than a lot of Landscapes have done - excellent!

What a gorgeous mono. It looks so right all fuzzy and stark - just like the weather.

I'm thinking Edgar Allan Poe, 'Quoth the raven, nevermore!'
Fabulously grim. I hope you closed your window again quickly!

"Opened the window and did a couple of quick snaps"

This must be the most modest thing I have ever heard, wonderful stark image with an almost mystical atmosphere.
Stunning is an much used word around here but this really is.

How's your cold now? Thanks for the PMs, by the way. Things got better and then got worse but I reckon they're gonna get better soon.

That poor wee soul out there in the cold and snow - did you invite him/her in for a cuppa? But you've captured so well what nature has to put up with in winter and survive through.
