Winter, you just can't let it go, don't you? Holding firmly to the last bits of snow.

Great atmosphere, Rob.

Wow, that's a great view you have from your window.

I guess you'll be saying goodbye to white and hello to yellow!

Believe me, you don't want to live where I am when you have uninterrupted views like this! Just that little bit of snow hanging on there I see. Great Rob.

Boy, you did get a lot of snow this year, too.
These are beautiful, Rob. Am so glad to see spring light everywhere. You capture the poetry of the landscape.

Lovely soft tones that show the subtlety of winter light when the harsh sun isn't on show.
