Lovely pictures with cool blue sky and subtle appearance by the moon.

More wonderful pictures, The bare trees have their own character in winter, even though they are bare they still stand tall.

This is the first time I'm going to use the word 'lush' to describe bare trees, but it's the only word that seems appropriate!

I find it odd that the dog statues are looking in the same direction, especially if they were meant to 'guard' the building.

Trees are beautiful whether they are full of leaves or completely empty. I love those statues of the dogs.

Lois said...

The dogs seem to be watching the trees very intently! I love that moon in your picture again. Very pretty!

Joerg said...

Great Picture!

To all the folks out there: If you need a local tour guide to show you where to shoot such pictures like this, visit: Tourmandu.com :)

Tourmandu - Go Local! We do.

The moon is impressive.
Beautiful winter scenery.

The sky is blue, I suppose it is not so cold.

Jessica said...

So beautiful and seasonal. The moon gives it a great atmosphere. By the way, I just put in my nominations for the 2009 Bloggies and wrote you in as Best Photography Blog. Good luck!

Love it, beautiful.

Boise Diva said...

I would say "ours look that, too," but it's not true! Your sky is much bluer and prettier!

angela said...

Even though the trees are bare the sunshine is still golden...love those dogs.

I'm interested in the dogs too. They look starved.

the 2nd pic is a classic!!!

I like the first photo, JM. From this angle and with this light direction, those white dog statues look alive.

Marie-Noyale said...

Even your winter pictures and the naked trees, look warm and inviting with this beautiful lighting!!

Such noble-looking dogs. Two beautiful shots. The color of that stone with the blue sky is stunning.
