Put here as a bit of 'tongue-in-cheek' (as we say here in Britain), especially for the 'That's funny contest'. Please don't think the rays or colours are real! However the snowman and his happy smirk are. (I had to do some discreet editing!!!!)
Lovely snowman :)
Like me, he's a winter person...we don't like it when it get too warm!
GGR thanks for the good luck wishes. Glad you like him.
Martin, welcome to my gallery. He's thrown the scarf off as he's getting rather hot under those sun rays?
Laurel -he certainly feels a bit uncomfortable but he looks happy for some reason! You might be interested to know that my place of employment (a local) school), like many in the area, has closed today because of our adverse Winter conditions. So more time for taking pictures of snowmen. Hooray!!
Cheers to you all, Herb
Thanks for that Marina. I hope other people will be amused too. Regards, Herb
Great pic, Herb. There's more than just a passing resemblance to Linus (from the Peanuts cartoon) here. The guy NEEDS a blanket! Good luck in the NPC (one day I'll get to understand all the rules and regulations of how to enter a shot into that competition...)
Excellent shot! Very interesting snowman! like
Best wishes from Beijing, China
Clive, great to see you and your comment here. He's thrown the blanket away as its getting too hot. The rules are a bit awkward at first but ok once you get to know how to do that. If you ever want some help give me a shout. Thanks for the G-luck wishes.
KUANG Da, excellent that you have made another trip to my gallery and a comment here. Special thanks for the like. 謝謝和來自不列顛的祝賀。
Greetings to you both, Herb
I might well do that in preparation for next month's contest. CoB
You know, sometimes we have to go with our first feelings with a photo for a competition. And, then you slowly realise you made a terrible mistake. Well perhaps I did that here as I have obtained my lowest ever mark on this poor snowman.
However, it is the taking part that matters and I extend my congratulations to the winners.
Special thanks goes to my friends who supported my gut feelings with this: Marilyn Kendall, eleda61, FWWS! and wendyemlyn.
After this competition for a funny picture I remembered I took this only earlier on this year, alas too late to change my mind. - Here's to the next NPC, Herb
