... aka HAPPY EASTER ...

So here is an Easteregg created by Nature in Atlantic Canada; is it:

a) the dump of about a foot of snow arriving in typical Atlantic weather style
b) the granite egg tumbled by the Atlantic ocean?

Hi Jay.
Excellent winter (not spring :) picture. Great exposure and sharpness of the image, nice shadows and impressive POV. I am assured the spring (or summer :) will come soon. Take care.

I think you got a "two-fer"; TWO "Easter Surprises" for the price of one!!

I like the composition on this photo.....the
granite, the wood, and twigs standing upright in the BG. I love the way the snow has provided a "negative space" on each of your
elements..........and curved softly at the top of the snow, before incorporating the twigs/branches/trees in the BG.

That snow looks terrible this time of year,we are lucky it is only cold here with lots of snow that fell earlier.

Hi Jay, splendid winter composition, may be Christmas instead Easter:) in Italy the sun shine, I hope that spring coming soon also for yoou, ciao Silvio
