What's GOOD about the Long Driveway

What's GOOD about the Long Driveway
What's GOOD about the Long Driveway

---
After the mild snowfall (vs the insane BLIZZARD north of here), the plow arrived a little after dawn. I was already outside and had finished clearing the walkways.

NOW I had my camera and re-discovered how PRETTY the driveway winding up our hillside could look. That's another view of the new shed.

    You call that Snow???? ;0)

Wonderful perspective with great leading lines Mickey

One question....Why is the shed so far away from the house????

@Mel: So TREES can fall on it?

It's not far from the house. If you were standing at the shed's door, the house would be directly in front of you...perhaps 30 feet. From this vantage point, the house is to the left of the shed, though the steepest part of the driveway must be traversed. It's good for the calf muscles. (No..not the CALF'S muscles...)

Pretty scene, Michelle. I'd love to have been in MA/CT area for the blizzard. No snow here in Omaha...bare ground. :-) Although I suppose I should not complain too much.

Beautiful winter scene, eith a lovely s bend leading the viewer through the image. I had a long complicated lane till we moved, cost me a lot of money, time, fuel, and back problems. New lane was sure tough to clean out Sat. morning, but nothing compared to my old one would have been.

I love the lines leading into this snowy image, Michelle. A wonderful winter scene! The bumpy bark on the framing tree looks super covered in skiffs of snow. :o)

A very photogenic capture here, Michelle!! I love the monochromatic appearance the snowfall has given, yet the colour in the shed provides a hint of selective colour. A beautiful image that cools us from our hot summer by just looking at it!!

Outstanding winter scene Michelle, love the way the curves in the driveway lead you right to your new shed. Are you still planning to sell or have you decided to stay where you are, after seeing several of your pictures it would be awful hard to leave such a beautiful setting. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Dear Photo Friend: I feel that something has changed at Better Photo but cannot tell you just what has happened. I have been here since 2003 and most every month I have written to all the winners telling them how their work touches me. I have witnessed photographs that bring tears to my eyes and colors that are unbelievable, now I am worried that like all good things that it will not be here the next time I look.
But the feeling of not being able to congratulate all the winners for the hard work, and sharing their talent with all of us makes me so sad.
However it turns out and even if this is the last time I have this privilege, to let you know how exceptional your work has been, please know that I will never forget.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for the month of March, 2013, I send my very best to you always, Merna Nobile
