Beautiful snowy shot! I love the delicate lights and the pretty iron fence. It is lovely.

I'm so glad you like this, MaryAlice. I'm sure that if any of the visitors to the falls had seen me taking a picture of the walkway, they'd have thought I was mighty peculiar!

It is a great picture. I think any visitors would just think you were from Australia and had never seen snow before!

Very beautiful environment and gorgeous photo, Marilyn !My best regards, Tamás

Thank you, Palmina and Tamás.

I suppose if they assumed that, Palmina, there's a sense in which they would be right: as photographers we should look at things as if we'd never seen them before!!

Wonderful photo, Marilyn! Really, the snow is just a bonus. There are so many examples of diminishing repetition and complementary forms that it's a worthy subject in rain or snow or shine.

It's hard to tell here, are there already footprints through this snow?

Thanks, Ryan, for your comments. Your question is a very good one. I took this as I was starting back from the falls. A number of people besides me had walked along here a little while earlier, and I can see from zooming in on the photo that the snow is somewhat disturbed. But as I walked along after making the shot, I was struck by that fact that there were no real footprints! The snow coming down and the wind whirling around had already covered them!

Many thanks for your careful description. Marilyn
