Nice photo Cowboy. The scenery is absolutely lovely, very Christmas cardy!
You can see the stillness of the day in the way the snow covered trees are reflected in the water.

It looks like a perfect day for a crisp winters walk in the UK......sigh!

(we've just had two days where the temperature rose to 38C and 39C respectively and in NSW yesterday the forecast was for 44C in some parts - hope SSue was not near any of the bushfires that sprung up during the day)

A beautiful photo, and always the very best place to see snow, IMHO :D

No Mojan, thankfully I'm not. Temps finally reached 48 at the airport, so I was told. I'm so glad I live on the coast.

I love this photo too. I can "feel" the silence which goes with snow. I love the reflection of the trees in the water too, gives it depth.

Sue, Mojan - I can sympathise with you about the heat and fires after the summer we had. I hope you're handling it OK. I'd heard how hot it was - my boss who was over in Sydney for the month of December, phoned me on Saturday and was complaining of the heat. She's back today but at least it's not very cold so she won't go into shock. In fact it feels like a spring morning today, very mild. 48º sounds way over the top though :shock: , 38º is bad enough. :roll: Happy New Year! :D

Great photo! And I see Alan's nominated it for Pic of the Week. Well deserved in my opinion.
