What beautiful colors, Sean! It looks like Autumn almost ~ certainly nothing like Spring.

I like these shades. ( Though you know that already, don't you? )

It is a different sort of shot, rather moody and deep.

Very nice!

Wishing you a wonderful evening, my friend,

Mary Alice

Good stuff my man! hope you are keeping well over there and that St. Paddy's Day wasn't too hard on your head! Cheers!

Hi Mary Alice, many thanks for the kind compliments. It was very overcast here yesterday but old Paddy must have 'turned the stone' because today was glorious sunshine dawn to dusk :~)

Cheers to you too Don, keeping ok: enjoyed a couple of black beers yesterday and the head didn't do too badly.

Warm regards guys,

Hello Timma: it does have that Autumnal look about it but Spring arrives here that little bit later. Have a great weekend in your beautiful Portugal.

Peter, many thanks for your kind words too.

Warm Regards,

i like the colours which remind me more of autumn than of spring. what's about the construction in the foreground?

Madidi on March 20, 2009

Good spot Koery, not quite sure what its purpose was: it appeared to be a trestle structure for supporting young trees. It was a very dull day which with the foggy atmosphere gave the woods a very Autumnal look. A few miles away near home we had glorious sunshine :>)

Always nice to have you visit.

Kind Regards,

Hi Kat, this is where I do a lot of my walking: this day was overcast and gloomy but still nice enough for a wander into the woods.

Glad you liked it :-)
