Noch ein Superfoto, May! Das grüne Gras im Vordergrund bildet einen sehr schönen Kontrast zu den bläulich-grauen Bergen dahinter, und die Büsche am linken Bildrand sehen ebenfalls sehr hübsch aus. Liebe Grüße, Anne

May, I can read enough German to know that Anne said just what I was thinking! Excellent work.

Cheers, Marilyn

Mossip, Anne and Marilyn thank you all very much for your kind comments!

I loved this view also for the colours, which went gradually from green to a soft blue, decorated with fresh snow on the heights, when I took the picture. The clouds with a hint of the late afternoon colour helped too. I am glad you noticed the trees in their autumn colour on the left.

Many greetings to you all, May

Anne, sorry, dass ich gleich in Englisch geantwortet habe, erinnert mich an die erste Zeit, als wir uns eine Weile auf Englisch unterhalten hatten. :)

Schöne Farben, und ganz besonders schön finde ich sie im oberen Teil des Bildes, mit den sonnenbestrahlten, halb weißen Hängen!

It looks like a very thin dusting on the near hills, and heavier snow father back. The patterns of green and white show off the shape and distance of the hills around your hometown very well!

Very lovely photo May. We just had our first snow today. It put a nice dusting on everything and I got some nice shots of it (which I'll probably upload later), but it's is all gone now (about 2 hours later). :( It never stays around very long where I live.

Cheers! DeEtte

Victor, muchas gracias por tu maravilloso cumplimenta. Me siento honorada. Estas palabras de tu, que haces tal fotos hermosas! Saludos a "La Roca", May :)

Ryan, yes the snow is a great painter and he paints the scenery every day anew! I can't remember the daytime, but I think it was near sunset, the valley already in the dark. Greetings, May

DeEtte, thank you very much! We don't have anymore snow either. Except last winter, which was a strange warm winter in any case, we usually have a lot of snow, but to remain, mostly at the end of year and through to March, sometimes late snow at Easter, which nobody likes, except some fanatic skiiers and the hotel owners in the mountains maybe. ;) Many greetings, May
