LikeLiked by 1 person Reply And now you’ll complain that you have trouble sleeping tonight right? Its OK Alena, weekends are made for relaxing. That’s why I ran out at 7 in the pouring rain. 😛 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Mike, this is exactly the sort of beauty I love about winter and that quote is the frosting on the cold cake.

It seems like I’m just taking photographs but later I see them as a frozen moment in time, especially this one. LikeLike Reply Fantastic shot! The pattern of the branches brings both a certain regularity and confusion… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Karine. My first thought was to create an image that captured a certain regularity and confusion. My second thought was how to take a photo in a snowstorm without getting wet, so I found a large pavilion and took cover. 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply So beautiful and peaceful. To exists merely for the prettiness of it. Nature is so amazing if you’re willing to look. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Kacha, its very true. Sometimes we get so caught up in our own little world that we miss the beauty of simple things.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What do you get the monkeys as a wedding gift? 😮 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You will laugh but once my son had a party and I made some punch with fruit and alcohol. The youngsters finished the punch but left the fruit. I put the bucket outside and the monkeys ate it the next day. My neighbour not knowing told me the next day that those monkeys were swinging, running and creating havoc as if they were drunk.. We did have a really good giggle because they most certainly were drunk.. 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I find monkeys scary because they can eat your face, and a drunk monkey is terrifying!
