That is a beautiful frosty shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. We got a lot of bang for our buck that day!
I like the shades of colour in this, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Frank. It helped that the sun was just starting to rise off to the left.

Now...this looks crisp as potato crisps, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: That's a good way to put it, Ray! smile
A very nice shot - love the frost - and the light on the masts beyond!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. The sun was just staring to rise in that moment.

Oh I love this place. What a great view and picture. I am so glad you went out on a walk that day. Pure delight to see the outcome of fog and frost.....
Ginnie Hart: Thanks to you, Astrid, I was able to capture this. I would have missed it altogether if you hadn't called me to go out that day.
Just curious. Are there roses in bloom right now?
Ginnie Hart: I always seem to find a few winter roses at this time of the year, Michael, but one doesn't usually think of roses right now, like in North America!

Superbe lumière, j'aime cette jolie vue.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. The sun was just starting to rise for the day.
Oh that light!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Robin. It was spectacular the entire walk that day!

I recognise this. Love that winter light Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I bet you do recognize this place, Chris, and well you should. You would have loved this particular day!

Beautifully crafted, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Lisl.
Sidewalk, boats, frost and water... a good combo.
Ginnie Hart: It's hard to get better than this combination, Jacquelyn, for sure. Thank you.

Oh, I admire you enjoying a touch of real winter - a lovely image - and I know exactly where we are.
Ginnie Hart: I love that a handful of you know exactly where this is, Philine. Welcome back!

This is beautiful, Ginnie. I especially like the peachy light and the frosty covering the trees.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. The sun was just starting to rise!

when we lived on the boat, i used to hate low tide in the frost, it made walking on the docks and especially up THE RAMP very dangerous!! but it sure does LOOK lovely in this picture!!
Ginnie Hart: I can imagine how scary that would be, Elaine. Thankfully the walk wasn't slippery that day! Thank you.
and where nicer to take a break than this Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I so agree, Bill...in our own backyard!
One day Ginnie, my ambition.
Ginnie Hart: We're rooting for you, Chad!!!
I love this shot, Ginnie. I rarely see boat masts with heavy frosts like this as most boats here would be in for the winter at that time.
Ginnie Hart: I guess we're lucky in that regard, Mary, because this is an inlet from the Merwede river which doesn't freeze...at least not nowadays. We hardly ever get more than 2 days in a row with freezing or below temps.
I can guess what the saying means but have never heard it referred to in that way before. That really was a lovely frosty morning wasn't it.
Ginnie Hart: "Take time to smell the roses" was something I grew up with, Brian, to remind me of taking time for what's truly important in life. I've always loved the phrase. And yes, it was a truly delightful morning!

Can you smell the roses when it's so cold?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Not me, Anne, for sure! smile

If dogs weren't meant to sniff they wouldn't have noses
Ginnie Hart: That's probably why roses were created, I'm sure, Richard. smile
Now this is the perfect shot in perfect winter weather.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. "Build it and they will come!" smile
He he... Take me out for a walk like this when I visit you, G!
Ginnie Hart: I promise, LC, no matter what time of the year it is! smile
love it Ginnie... snow or frost it still looks beautiful....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. We actually woke up to a thin layer of snow this morning (Friday), so I'm sure there would be a similar look, but without the fog.

Smell the roses, but don't smell the path where people walk their dogs smile

The little bit of sun, highlights a silver landscape in gold.
Ginnie Hart: Leaves of gold in frames of silver. Hmmm. Sounds like a good book, Louis. smile And yes, you also have to be careful where you step because of the dogs!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
Time to smell the roses, huh? You made me chuckle... as the dog seems to be busy in quite a different way. smile This walk must have been unforgettable in many regards.
Ginnie Hart: It's always time to smell the roses, Petra! smile And yes, this walk that day really was unforgettable.
