Alone together, couple strolling in the arboretum during a recent snow fall.

Having a little fun here. Actually in the original shot (in the discussion) there was a photographer next to these two as they were on their way to "make" some unforgettable moments on digital (I removed the photographer digitally - photographers are always in the way anyway :-). Added some texture layers since the sky was so bland.
