Thanks Ursula. Living in (North Pole) Quebec with 60 inches of snow, these areas seem alien for me. Wonderful and such a wonderful capture! Thanks for your kind reply.

This is so fantastic Ursula. It makes me think of a little verse that was written in my autograph book...oh so many years ago.

Your life lies before you like a field of snow;
be careful where you tread, for every mark will show.
