Keep this crossing clear. Remove fog immediately! This is for a very special friend - just to show that sometimes I can judge the vertical :))

This looks great in full size. It's so alive!

They might have beamed the fog in the Black Forest. We had a lot of it during the Christmas days. L and best regards, Karl

Great, Amelia. It just proves that wonderful shots can be made in any weather.

Hi Who, I have to say that this signal box is very 'un-alive' but hopefully it may be renovated. They are thinking of re-opening this station, but I'm not sure I know who 'they' are.

All the best for 2012, Amelia

Lovely picture Amelia. The frost makes it! The end of the year and we have only had a couple of light frosts down here. They really make pretty pictures :)

All the best for 2012.

Thank you dear Karl. In fact this was taken last winter. This year it is mostly mild and rather dull Christmas weather unfortunately.

Best wishes for 2012 - and happy photography, Amelia

Dear Mike, I must apologise for this late reply - we have limited Internet access - something is wrong with our home hub, it comes and goes, but most often goes! :(

Love the 'romantic' bit here :))

Did you get your New Year's card?

Ca canny noo, Amelia

Belated Happy New Year, Dear Amelia.

I am so far behind on my Pano holiday wishes. We went to Hawaii on an Air Force jet for four days and ended up staying for eight when the jet broke. We got home just in time (December 24th) for our grandson Spencer's first Christmas.

We hope you had a very Merry Christmas and lots of fun ringing in the New Year. May 2012 bring you and yours health and happiness for many years to come.

Warmest regards, Leo & Meryl

Wonderful shot Amelia!

Must be viewed in full size to enjoy all the detail. It looks so hazy and beautiful.

Happy New Year!

Hi there Keith, and Happy New Year to you. What a lovely compliment - thank you. I wish the weather was a bit more like this now - we're having a drab time in Shropshire!

Cheers, Amelia

LOL the only thing level is the crossing :)) But I think the wee booties are doing their job well and it is only the lens that is inclined to distort~ :)) May your 2012 keep you upright and alert, may the wind blow away the cobwebs and the light shine upon you xxx

Happy New Year my dear Amelia!

I'm still leaning on the lamppost, and now it looks like I've done that too long. ;-))

I managed to straighten the lamppost, but unfortunately there wasn't very much I could do to remove the fog.

Have a great evening. All the best to you and yours.


Amelia Royan on January 11, 2012

Good morning dear Rosa, yes we are also short of frost this winter - this one was taken last winter when the weather was much more seasonable!

Thank you for your lovely compliment, and happy New year to you.


Amelia Royan on January 11, 2012

Hi there Steve, many thanks for the 'like' here. I agree that this sort of weather can give some good photo-opportunities :)))

Cheers, Amelia
