Well I ventured out yesterday and the light was grim to say the best. We didn't get any snow locally and thats cheered me up NOT !!

Anyway to prove I got out and I didn't let man flu beat me and more importantly to defy the "Boss" I took this one.

Better large if you have time

Glad you are up and out!
I expect the boss was glad to have you out from under her feet for a while!
Great capture. Like us in B'ham you are left with just a tad of jealousy of those who had the snow!

Belated best wishes for 2008 Dave! It may have been a grim day but, if anything, it enhanced this shot, which I think is excellent, great composition and looking a bit like a painting, nice work!
Rgds., and have a great weekend, pity I can't send you some of our snow, or maybe I should be like the chap in Montreal, who sold a snowbank at his house, on eBay for $3,550
