...One Season following another...
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Ray. So hard to believe it happens so quickly! Thanks.
Now I'd love to see that in real life... Beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. It's very soulful to see this day in and day out!
Wow!!... i just love it Ginnie....petersmile

Is this the little girl i carried.
Is this the little boy at play.
I don't remember growing older.
When did they.
Sunrise, Sunsetsmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. One of the best musicals of all time, IMHO! smile
...Laden with happiness and tears...

I love the colors in this image - and the bird flying, and what a wonderful place you live!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. You can understand why I love where we live so much...and why that's one of my favorite musicals in the world!
Great shot. Love;y colours What is this, a sunrise or a sunset?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Navin. This happens to be the sunset on Saturday, 4 February, around 6:30 p.m. smile

A beautiful thing and an equally gorgeous sunset Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Beautiful. I love that bird in there. It really adds.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael. It's one of the few birds I have never cloned out! smile

Absolute fabulous, a likey to me.
We just came there in time to have these wonderful colours.
The bird make the picture.
I pass this windmill every day coming home from work.
This landmark means HOME to me.
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA. This IS home for us both. It doesn't get better than a windmill in our own backyard...at sunset!
spectacular Ginnie!!!!
Ginnie Hart: Grazie, dear Fabrizio.

What a wonderful landmark to have on the way home
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Elisabeth, indeed. One can't have it any better than this!
I'm afraid it goes far too quickly. This is a lovely windmill picture Ginnie. One of your best
Ginnie Hart: Too quickly, indeed, Bill. And the older I get, the faster it flies! (sigh) Thank you for your very generous words.
These beautiful sunrises and sunsets are what I call `winter sweeteners`. When the days are so short, they lift the spirits with their awesome blaze of colour.

Beautiful image, Ginny, never tire of seeing your windmill studies. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Roz. Thank you.
Great colors and backlight Ginnie. A beautiful sunset
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Marie.

Stunning....sigh! What a gorgeous..gorgeous sunset! And - isn't what why we photograph? To remember those moments that so quickly fly???
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marcie, and YES. To remember those moments!
The picture is perfect - and so is your caption.

I've lost count of the number of times I've seen Fiddler, (and Phantom of the Opera, and West Side Story) and this is one of my favourite songs too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sheila. Fiddler is one of the best musicals of all time, IMHO. I love this song in particular. The older I get, the more often I sing it. HA!
This belongs on a tourist brochure. Love it.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Mary. Thank you.

Wish we had one so close Ginnie what a fantastic capture you don't need a lodger for a few weeks.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Peter!
this is gorgeous Ginnie, what a great result
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Chantal.
Some seasons may never arrive, it is good to be conscious.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Juan Carlos, you're so right. Gracias.

A marvelous sunset Ginnie. The colours are beautiful and absolutely beautiful composition. Beautifuly captured.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Laurette. It's hard NOT to love what's in our own backyard!

Fabulous, Ginnie. I like the colours here very much and the strong silhouette of the wonderful mill.

Lovely, with returning bird.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, John. The bird always returns. smile
It must be upset Brian day today. First you show us a lovely windmill, then you set it against a lovely sunrise/set, and then you tell us you only live 2 blocks away from it, it's not fair!
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes I have to pinch myself, Brian!

Beautiful Ginnie! Love the colours and subject, all wonderful!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Martin.
Twilight...my absolute favorite time to photograph! I can't wait to see my first windmill! Beautiful Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Twilight and dawn (if I'm up early enough, that is!) are such magical times, Robin, I know. Thank you. I can hardly wait for you to see MANY "first" windmills. I hope I'm with you when you do! smile
A supernatural evening! Sublime tones on the shade) of the mill! The shade of your country Ginnie...
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Mathilde. You know I love it here! Merci.
Think the barbeque got over excited ... fabulous image Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HA! We were just getting back at 6:30 p.m. from a short weekend away. A BBQ would have been nice! smile Thanks, Richard.
Lovely capture Ginnie! Love the sunset behind that wonderful Windmill!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Oh, my. Looking at it this second time I've realized one thing that "makes it" is the combination of the warm colors with the high level ice crystals - the seasons are turning, as surely as the windmill.
Ginnie Hart: There is indeed snow on the ground in this image, Linda. Good eye. And yes, the seasons are turning. I like that!
Lovely silhouette and colours Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Wonderful silhiuettes. I love the tones Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. Merci.
Wonderful image,is the bird on the payroll, it certainly adds to the image.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin, and HA! Great question. smile

There's nothing I like more than a traditional windmill silhouetted against a gorgeous sunset.

Absolutely beautiful shot. Well done. Cheers, Dave.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kind sir!
Good looking photo, nice sky! Really awesome! Only maybe for this image is would be better when you cut some black off.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Robbie. There certainly is lots of black and you may be right!
Just stunning Ginnie!! I must show it to my 3,5 year old nephew who is obsessed with windmills at the moment wink
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Magdalena. Your nephew and I are on the same page. smile
