Snow Chums


If I were a fallen leaf, I'd live a second life as a snow chum!

Real cool, cold shot smile
Ginnie Hart: And you would know, Dotun. I wonder if you've had snow in D.C. yet? Thanks.
strange to say this Ginnie, but I'm so envious of all this snow! We're still waiting patiently for snow over here smile

One of your striking shots again, geweldig mooi van kleur en contrast, great in color and contrast, de omlijsting is weer geraffineerd gedaan met dat dunne lijntje, je begint ook hier veel plezier in the krijgen, the border is great with this picture, it 'completes' this lovely picture smile

c'est le genre de détail que j'adore

Astrid heeft al alles gezegd- in English and in Dutch!I like this photo, too, especially the form and the colour of the leaves, I think they will survive the cold winter, they look so robust- enviable!
Ginnie Hart: You who can speak both languages so well are to be envied, Philine! I'm working on it!! Thank you, as always!
A sharp image and so clear and to the point. Strong colours as well. richard

Lovely macro shot Ginnie - it says winter to me in a nutshell. Good contrast between the snow and the leaf.

This is so beautiful, Ginnie. The texture in the snow is fantastic, and the sunlight adding highlights. The leaves a perfect, rich foil. (:o)
