Wow! What a shot! The snow, the sunset reflecting in the water and the beautiful swan, all make for a perfect picture! Definitely a yellow star!!!

Greetings, DeEtte

Stunning photo! Really nice colors, and looks almost like that swan was posing!

Greetings from Toulouse, Justin

Thank-you very much, Justin! I too love this lucky shot, and laugh when I think of why I got it: I was doing errands and drove by the lake on my way to the grocery store! Cheers!

Thank-you, hamzars! It does make chilly winter look wonderful, doesn't it? I think the swan was happier last summer, though! Many thanks again, and Cheers!

Beautiful. I also like the lights on in the cabin top left,look's cozy. I do wish our Swan's stuck around all year.Love the shot's of the signet's.

thanks, Zoe! Funny how adding a swan can make almost any setting seem idyllic!

Thanks for liking the lights in the distance! They're one of the things I really like about this shot, even though (here I go ruining the illusion!...) they're the city water supply pump station! (And to add to the illusion, I cropped out the power line stanchions that go over the hill in the distance, too!)

What we find by looking at different parts of Panoramio, missed this one, but love it and once again at your special pond. Dianne

Thanks dianne - funny to have this one bob to the top. This was one of my Christmas card photos this year! And congrats for entering a photo in the NPC! After you post a thumbnail the first time, it stops being so intimidating - you can have some fun there!

Would certainly make a beautiful Christmas card photo, it took me awhile to make a move to NPC but its all part of the fun of P.

I like bringing these beautiful photos up again. They are certainly worthy of another round.

A beautiful pic for a winter shot, shame our winters are in different months of the year. Love this shot.
