Hi Herman, a little of that cold would feel really good here. Starting to get really hot up here.

I like your landscape a lot. Detail front to back.

Morning Herman...first you make me hot then you make me cold..GrinGrin, think I will leave your fire as my screen saver today to feel the warmth....
Great captures, the mountains look great with the snow caps, hoping I can get some images from the plane on Thursday as we fly over the range.

It's june in London and I still have the central heating on!
I could do with that lovely fire in my sitting room right now! Love the scenic view in V2.
Recommendations: A hot whiskey, a cosy pair of slippers and roast nuts by the fire! Grin

Here in the UK we are beginning to enjoy some warmth at last.
There is nothing more welcoming on a cold evening than a warm fire.

We've just stopped lighting ours! I remember when I lived in Sierra Leone having frost in the mornings - no-one here would believe me!

.... since when is it down to the bloke to take the garbage out! Tell her to do it herself Grin

Would love to have an open fire. I think the Local Authorities would have something to say about burning wood in London.

That looks cosy Herman, I can hear the crackle from here; speaking as someone who has a lot of experience in these matters, I can confirm, that is definitely snow on the top there.

I took a tour around Swellendam the other day, may have passed your hour house without knowing it courtesy of Google World, then took a tour around my area and there was my old car I changed in December, I loved that car.

Used to have an open fire back in the 60's but hated the clearing of the ashes the next day! We've just been promised a week of warm sunny weather Herman so you should have posted something like this a week or so ago when we were feeling kind of chilly.Grin
4 Jun 2013 9:33AM
Someone said that people can look at the fire for eternally ... Perhaps he was right! Let it warms your family, Herman, while winter is coming...
About the wisdom: Most likely they were not lazy, but they were both so busy with their nonsense in their heads that they did not see the reality around!WinkSmile
