Jogging in a Winter Wonderland


A photo from last January's snowfall at my favorite........the Palais Royal of course.  Paris got a lovely snowfall this past week.  My shutter finger is twitching! :)

Some people are just crazy! But, we photographers out in the snow shooting these things... well, THAT is a different story! ;)

Yes, I think that Palais Royal is covered today from yesterday's deluge... Hope Holly wore her camera out capturing it all!

Love this shot, V.

Starman said...

So tell me, if you're so fond of snow, why do you live in the South?

@Starman She's fond of snow *because* she's from the South!

Starman, la Mom is right. I like to photograph it but I don't want to spend a winter with it. I survived a winter in Iowa and in Wisconsin, years ago. Got my fill. Now show is Paris is another thing as you well know.

Nice shot! The light and composition is great.

Virginia said...

Oh thank you all for your wonderful comments. Perhaps I'll happen upon a Paris snowfall again. If not....this one made me very very happy. Photographers learn to accept the special moments in our lives. This is one that I will cherish.

This is very special, V. And cooling ~ it's been hot here today, so I can feel this scene lowering my temperature nicely.
