Photographer's Note

It was so cold that politicians had their hands in their own pockets!
It was so cold that hitchhikers were holding up pictures of their thumbs!

And where do you suppose I was? I left my dog curled up on a comfy cushion at home, dropped my Nikon on the front passenger seat of my car and headed in search of subjects to experiment on. Every time I wanted to leave the car I pointed it toward the sun so that my seat would be warmer than me when I got back in.
Anyone with any sense was indoors, but the sun was bright and the sky was clear and I had a new camera -- what more can I say?
With apologies to Paul Simon:

Dee sev’nty Ess
You give us those nice bright colours
You give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah!
I got a **Nikon** camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama, don't take my 70 S away

PP: slight levels adjustment; slight dodging of the two evergreens to bring out the greens; cropped bottom to remove most traces of the snow ploughed off the road; resized, and sharpened

Thanks for your visits, comments and suggestions
