Yesterday's post was sheer fun. Of course it was over the top; that was the delight of it. Today we are back to so-called reality :)))

Not a soul to be seen...this is great, and a wee bit eerie. I like it :)

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

Love your composition. The foggy take on this scene makes this one look lonely and a tad spooky.

A minimalist look and very curious. The open space covered and protected by plastic or glass maybe.
Cold very cold! We have to wait for the sun to warm us up! Muchos besos y abrazos querido amigo! Te deseo un buen dia! Adela

They can wait for spring in a warm place. I really like the misty feel here, like coton surrounding them.

The spring is still far. In France February is often very cold and the spring shows the end of its nose only towards in the middle of March. It seems very far

and so-called reality is a lot grayer than yesterday's orgy of colors! love the misty overtone and the sense of loneliness, however!

I didn't realising that it wasn't just us Brits that spend 6 months of the year waiting for the other 6 months! It seems to be a world-wide phenomenon! Great shot of things moving in the right way

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

A sad and somewhat haunting shot Jack! The fog adds a wonderful sense of intransigence as it awaits the new season. Well done! ;-)

...but so-called reality is very dreamy and full of mystery, and promise of goods moments of sport !!!

Mathilde Collot from Fontainebleau, France

Not quite true! the tone of the sky is so light! the house built with tracing paper! Maybe so subtle but real!

Nicely moody. I like your subtle vignetting.
