Cold Winters Night

Cold Winters Night

The Windows Are Frosty
The Curtains Closed Tight.
The Fire Roars Hot
On This Cold Winters' Night.

The Snow Swishes Wildly
The Doors Whistle Song
Winter Just Got Here
But I Wish It Was Gone!

This is the original image.

I used the Smart Photo Editor
(OFFERED ON BETTER PHOTO)
Did a 180* split flip, Used Fantasy Imagine
THEN I USED THE BELOW PHOTO to LAYER
For The Additional "stars in the sky" Or Snow In The High Heaven,
(However you chose to view the image).

  This is actual frost on my kitchen window.

It was perfect to make the effect I wanted at the top of the final image to make stars or snow.

In my minds eye it started as stars but if it truly was a snowy night we would see no stars. Just snow and blackness.

I can't believe how you transformed the original image to get this amazing result, you are really clever. Best wishes for a happy Christmas and I hope Santa is generous to you.

Oh, Sister! This is good. And so is your poetry. A delight to see on this (here in Denmark) cold and wet Christmas day.

Hi SSSKiki, Fa la la la Patricia, Dear Nancy, Rey-Rey and Miss Terry!

It's so great seeing you all here on this snowy image.

Let me put more logs on the fire and get the cocoa going! Shall I?

I will read you some poetry by the fire. Just a few dozen until you fall fast asleep under your cozy blankets! :)

Thank you all for being here!
