Lovely winter view.

Which can sometimes only be good. At the very least it creates a bit of a mysterious atmosphere, which can work really well.

You don't really need another click - but you are getting one, anyway! This is brilliant. Would have been good without the foreground branch, but the branch is the star of the show for me! Just lovely... Smile

Seldom do I see an image that is just so TOTALLY satisfactory. There are a lot of very good images on this site, but this belongs to the few that are in a class of their own. It just absorbs me and I will just let it do so without any more said.
