This is so beautiful! I love the hint of green under the snow on the tree and that wonderful red building. The composition makes this the perfect image to me. It is prettier then any Christmas card! Love it and I hope we see it again.

I don't like snow when you have everyday life to lead but I love this; I could get lost in there for a few weeks with a fireplace, my camera, some wine & cheese and my hubby! Nicely done Steve!
