Good morning from 2017 ! May it be a much better year than its predecessor 2016 ;
Andy and Sury, thank you for your lovely and relevant contributions.
Jeff, unfortunately, scientifically and climate-wise, when scientists speak of 'winter' and 'winter climate conditions' they usually point to the weather and scenery changes that take place in the Northern Hemisphere, hence the samples slideshow of snowy scenes, I'm afraid. For such reasons, we, humans tend to overlook the fact that winter period usually juxtoposes with the summery conditions of the Southern Hemisphere, with highs like 20+ Celcius degrees and above.
If you believe that some scenes or beach conditions you may be experiencing over where you are, are of interest, first to your mind's eye and then to us, I think I'm all for it. : ) Beauty is everywhere.
Thanks again for participating with such neat shots and taking the time to upload yesterday, at such a busy time of the last year !
