Winter III

By saltireblue    
I make no excuses for resurrecting the season of Winter.
It is good to look back, sitting here in shorts and nothing else, a cold beer in one hand, one eye on the barbecue and one brain cell working while the others take a siesta.
I promise not to post any more of these before next winter...honest.Wink

Many thanks for all the comments on and interest in my previous upload - all appreciated.👍

Thanks for bothering.

No excuses necessary, Malc. It's a cracking shot, with its strong diagonals, a punchy b&w to be proud of. And if there are any lumps of ice knocking around, I'll have them in my cold beer. Allan

It's OK for you sitting there in your shorts with a beer to hand whilst your image gives me the shivers........for sure says everything about winter snow scenes and the monochrome landscape.

Love the minimalism, Malc. You have chosen (selected? created? noticed?) a dynamic shape, while the barbs really stand out against the snow. Although I loathe winter and especially snow Blush

I tend to skim-read most intros online, from which I have developed a tendency to skip entire words or phrases. So for a moment I was wrestling with the concept of sitting there "in shorts and cold beer".
Happily I also tend to read most things twice.

LOL ! This reminds me of skiing after school way back when---- one had to be careful NOT to trip (slip the tip of the ski under a barbed wire fence). over a fence!

Great memories! thanks!

I love this, the barbed wire halo, the pointed post tops, and the way the snow covers one side of the far posts, leaving a gap between them and the fencing.
It's one of the best images I've seen tonight, so have a GEA on me.
