20151124 Winter Wonderland in Britt after the snowstorm

As  mentioned on the last post, 20151123 … , we spent a few hours Tuesday morning taking photos around Britt.

(Some of these are worth clicking on to get a full screen version.)

Here are the first two of the morning at 8:15AM, Still River from Hwy 526:

  1. “Quite a nice day” (I feel) is an understatement to this magical Winter’s realm and …..”those clouds” One feels uplifted – awe, wonder and sheer delight. Being present there must have been incredible. Thank you!!!!

  2. Ciao Tom… Your day trip photos put me right back to my youth in the Kootenays – the vistas, the charm, & the tone … Very magical … indeed …

    • Thanks a lot, folks, for your very generous comments. I really enjoyed the outing and am lucky to be able to share my delight with my friends!
