      Great pictures, Ralph. The snow looks great too and I miss it now - but by min-January I will again be happy to be living in sunny Arizona and put my nostalga for snow away until next December.

      Great photos, Lot of people detest pigeons because they sh..t all over the buildings and you have to walk in it in shopping areas in parts of Australia.

      We have had them breed in our patio, and in the gazebo. We wouldnt hurt them at all although I love parrots and finches best in my aviaries.

      The photographs made me catch my breath. They are stunning! The feelings it evoked in me is of one of perfect harmony and quietude. Thanks for this!

      don't hate me. five is better, but I liked two best the first way. I thought that one was perfect right from the start.

      Picture 5 inspired me to write this haiku,Ralph, that I dedicate to our mutual friend Iðunn.

      She stands alone shivering in the snow

      Sadness bleeding from her soul

      Mourning the death of her summer love

      Thankyou.....jimmy

      if you edit the 5th and just take a bit of gray off the top, it would be more whatever that word is that's like symmetry. balanced. you know. and of course, I say this as just a viewer - I have no background in photography or art. the third one was great too, but the fourth was just better.

      I will say I love your photographs. you have a keen eye and a rare talent.

      Tnx for the comments. I agree, iounn, the 2nd and 4th pics are the best. Perhaps I should delete the others. Maybe I will if I get some more.
