    Default The winter thread 2009

    Despite the "whining" (LOL!) of some of our members, there is so beauty to be found in winter. Some of the following pics are less than stellar but I chalk that up to my camera's limitations and the fact that some of the pics were shot from inside my parents' house.

    A neighbor's house:

    Great shots, Paul! It looks very cold there. We got a little dusting of snow on Dec. 25, but that was it. Still clear here, but cold none-the-less. Thanks for starting this thread. I look forward to all the photos the members here will share.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Pavel,

    I like the winter too. Then I get the bill for heating my greenhouse.

    Happy New Year.

    I love the bird pictures, especially the first woodpecker one.

    These are a couple of shots of the raptor feeding station in Wales. These were taken in Feb 2009. You may be able to pick out a few hawks and kites in amongst the crows. Love the Cardinal shot Paul !

    Love all the pics. The ones of Wales makes me want to visit there more than ever. Wales is very high on my travel-to list.
