Winter's Jewelry (2nd in NPC December 2013)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The brilliant sunshine and the fresh snow, after a blizzard like condition of the day before, brought out many people to the city parks.

This is just one of many wonderful nature sculptures, created on the day, near the Lake of Ontario shores. The dark waters of the lake is like a blue velvet backdrop in a jewelry store...

Submitted to NPC contest in DECEMBER 2013. Winter. Placed 2nd, in excellent competition (one vote less than winner). My best placing in any Panoramio NPC competition!

Congratulations Tomas. I think you must have had to get down on very hard and very cold mother earth to get this one, but it was worth it - unique. Favorite65.

I remember it was one of those bright cold winter day. It was not easy to walk in the fresh snow, but I was dressed for it.

last few days were much, much worse.....

I can only imagine how it was in Toronto as it was bad enough here. Rarely gets below freezing; but we had about 80 hours and that is more than enough for me.
