BRAVO! :)
I enlarged the picture, it's outstanding!
BEAUTIFUL!
I think life is a picnic if you have positive feelings and face the adversities with faith.
A picnic time is a happy feeling inside your heart!For me chocolate is essential! :)
I love your pictures and creative words!

A wonderful scene, whose magic sense of suspension turns rather into suspense, because of the patch in the sky...

Julie said...

I thought we lived in a fairly harsh environment. I think you live in a far more harsh environment.

Any word yet? I will go check FDE.

It's the season to feast on winter's beauty served with lots of hot cocoa.
Very pretty scene.
Sunny :)

Love the tone and composition of your photograph. It ALMOST looks inviting, but living in the "frozen tundra" of Minnesota, I KNOW the reality of melting snow and ice. But, your scene makes it look ever so inviting. I'll wait for summer, or at least spring, for the picnic.

Love the shot. It is magical and is a picnic in itself.

Yes we all have good memories of Betty. she was one in a million. MB

That's a storybook shot. Picnic for the birds?

Leif Hagen said...

Make sure you're wearing your snowpants for that picnic lunch!

henny said...

This is stunning. A view from your window?

It really is a nice looking photograph. The color in the sky is a real treat.

brattcat said...

CQ, the birds have a picnic every day. And they don't need a table, though some I think enjoy eating at one. Henny, this is not out my window. It's at the very beginning of a walk I love to take about a three minute drive from my home.

Cold chicken and potato salad?

Sharon said...

I love the sky you captured in this one.

Malyss said...

Benches and snow? A dream of a picture for me!!
Life can be a picnic if you know to put the right things on the table..I mean, life is what you want it to be,and depends on the way the way you look at things...
(You see, benches always lead to philosophy!Ü)

To answer to your question:The swap was about time, we had to send two books, one about time , and one that we discovered in 2009. Something good to eat.A calendar or a diary.A notebook. And a small surprise.

Geez, that's a gorgeous scene BUT it's cold. But truly beautiful.

Keep warm. Thanks for your comments at Tampa DP.

This definitely deserves to be enlarged and given a closer look. Very nice. I like that the snow is pristine and undisturbed and the sky is interesting.

In Real Life said...

Beautiful, gorgeous photo! I love the trees and the sky and "water", and undisturbed snow. This scene is a feast for the eyes, and there is so much to capture the imagination.

Jilly said...

Oh how fabulous. What a great shot you've taken, Brattcat.

Malyss said...

About the swap about time:
I send a book of japanese poems called Haïkus. These are small poetries in three lines . I love this kind of poetry. And the theme of the book was "the four seasons", so, perfect for the theme of time.
And my second book was from an american writer that I discovered this year and loved very much. The writer is C.J. Box, and I send "Blue heaven".

Amin said...

Anya said...

lizziviggi said...

I feel cold just looking at that beautiful, icy scene! I think I'll take my picnics indoors for now, thank you very much. A nice blanket on the living room floor, some pb&j, and we're set!

Tash said...

And I thought life was a beach.

Marvellous photo.

I remember a proverb saying that there is no bad weather, only wrong clothes!

Clueless in Boston said...

I'm with the bad poet (Vogon Poet) about no bad weather only bad clothes; but that looks a little too chilly for a picnic.

JM said...

A true painting. Brilliant!

Virginia said...

Magical. Another gorgeous snowy scene for us to admire from afar!

No problem getting a spot at the table with that weather...

Paula said...

If you're a bird, or moose, or a porcupine, or a coyote, or a fox...
