@Paco Díaz: true...thanks! but it always makes me wonder why a lot of people prefer summer i guess both have their advantages :)

Rick from Toronto, Canada

An excellent image and mood, with that distended shadow and the sense of winter chill. Nicely done !

Winter will soon be a reality. For some strange reason is due to the winter always seems to be taking forever and the summer goes almost unnoticed. That picture is a good reminder of the winter. Greetings and more.

@Jypyä Pop: true...and I just noticed how true that always seems that summer is really short! but we must enjoy it while it lasts...thank you :) Have an awesome day.

I love the black and white, and it encourages me to not fear winter because there will be always beautiful things to photograph.
