Deux jolies photos. J'aime la deuxième avec l'ombre des arbres.
Mary MacADNski: I added the last one only last night.

Oh...is it not real?
Mary MacADNski: It is becoming so this week. We have had our snow turn to rain all winter and have had bare fields which equals erosion. This week however we had snow. Some on Mon, Wed and forecast for Thursday overnight and all day Friday is what htis week is bringing. I posted this last week and added the second shot yesterday to use up some shots in the unused bin.
Lovely wintery details, Mary. (Oh, and thanks for the introduction to Chilly Gonzales the other day. Just the job late at night.)
Mary MacADNski: Piano extrordinaire...
I love the wavy snow / shore line, Mary! Love the shadows as well! And a good Moody Blues track...
Mary MacADNski: Thank you times three.

It doesn't look as if it's in retreat

It doesn't look like an illusion at all to me, Mary. I would LOVE to see a LOT of snow like this...not just a dusting like we've had thus far.

We rarely have scenes like this any more, Mary
Mary MacADNski: We are getting snows this week and it is reminiscent of our record breaking snow year. The first snow came Feb 14 that year. I had pre- posted this previously.

I'm immediately seeing a duck's bill in this. I guess you've got nothing like the snow that you had last winter - yet?
Mary MacADNski: Last winter was late. The year before was extrememly late with the snow beginning the wkend of Feb 14. It is only this week we've had any that stayed.

I can remember this Moody Blues song at the 1970 isle of Wight Festival.
Mary MacADNski: I loved this band!

Great pattern and texture. It looks icy up front.
Mary MacADNski: Not at all - soft fluffy snow a delight to shovel for the second photo and the top, I was standing on very thin ice but managed to stay dry.

Reality of winter- I like your image very much.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you. I love the top one as it takes me there that day with the unusual formation.
Very Good


I still have this album on Vinyl. Local band from Birmingham who did quite well for themselves
Mary MacADNski: I still have it on vinyl too and many of their other ones. I saw them in Vancouver in '96.
I really like all the shapes and shadows in these two images Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. The second came as an afterthought and was added only last night.

Lovely curves and shadows.
Mary MacADNski: The second shot was added last night though it didn't quite fit the first.
it looks like winter to me Bill... these are two excellent shots... love the shadows on the second image... they look like ripples in the snow...

i followed the Moody Blues for years... they are cool... i have
"In Search of The Last Chord"
"On The Threshold of a Dream"
on my iTunes and play them al the time....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I have several of their albums on vinyl. I should dig them out and photograph them. I have software to convert my albums but never did.

When I see your pictures I kind of miss S N O W...I know you have more than enough, but I LOVE your pictures.
Mary MacADNski: We have just started to get snow this week. Previously it would rain afterward and disappear the snow.
excuse me Mary MacADNski... for calling you Billgrin
Mary MacADNski: No probs, though I have not been called worse.
Great shots... both very graphic and rather abstract...
Mary MacADNski: Certainly different days. Home today on a snow day. Have to go out and shovel in a bit.
