Dyane,

very atmospheric shots.
I like the monastery and of course George.
It seems he likes it really to sniff in the snow ;-)

Cheers,

Stefan

Hi Stefan - pleased you liked the shots. Yes, George loves the snow, goes completely mental and bounces round like a lunatic. I love chucking snow balls for him ..... he can never see where they land !!

Dyane - What a great looking place to live. Love that shot of George. Must take him a few hours to melt after he comes in. I have a 'different' picture of Laci, one of my dogs in the Animal & Pet Photos Forums if you would like to take a look.

Beautiful snowy shots Dyane and, of course, gorgeous George. Did he get a fee for the photoshoot?

Dyane-

Many thanks for more shots after a snowfall of your lovely village. An of course, of George as well, who looks to get very physical with the snow that he loves.

I think that it is only fair for some of us to share a few glimpse of our own home town. My husband and I live in tiny Brookings, Oregon where we have just over 6,000 residents. About 50% of our population are retired folks like ourselves. The lumber mill where over 70% of the framing timber for the west coast is produced is the biggest employer, followed by a second mill producing plywood and sheeting lumber.

We are also home to one of the largest Dungeness Crab fleets in the Pacific Northwest, and home to a very unusual agricultural business. In a small 8 mile long strip along the Pacific Ocean beginning in Brookings and moving southward, our residents grow 90% of the Hybrid and Easter Lilies for the United States.

Our first photo shows the unusual way in which lilies are planted.



Rather than having sandy beaches, we have a rather rocky coastline.



The rockiness is not solely found just in the breakwaters of the Pacific Ocean. Huge rocks such as this one rising over 60 feet in the air. stand in the middle of a huge lilly field less than a mile from our home.



And naturally with a large crabbing fleet, we also have our share of boat yards too.



So there are a few views of our little town.

Sarah Joyce

Nice photo's Dyane, where was #3 taken from, with the zoom used it looks like you could have been sitting in the tree

Sarah, how do you manage to write text between the pictures?

There are lots of high up areas around my village and in No.3 I had climbed up the hill at the back of the Abbey which goes up to a massive statue of the Virgin Mary who looks out over the surrounding countryside.
