Black & White Wednesday

Although most of the pics I post on here are of my kids, I do love landscape and architectural photography as well. This is a picture I took of the Palace of Versailles in France in 2008. The skies were so amazing on this trip and the photos I took were some of my all-time favorites. You can click here if you'd like to see more.

We are having Snow Day #2 today. We were so busy all day yesterday - sledding, baking, crafting - I'm not sure what we'll be doing today. I do know one thing... I think the snow is very pretty, but I am so ready for Spring!! Of course, I bet those that already had 36" out east are really looking forward to Spring. I can't even imagine that much snow - and it's still coming down!

Pop over to Lisa's blog to enjoy more B/W Wednesday.

Anyway, I digress! I love what you've done with this shot. C'est magnifique! Your talent is incredible. I so wish I lived close by and that you could tutor me.

Love the photo! As for the snow *grin,* all total, it ended up being 46 inches in one week, about 58 inches in the past month. The mind boggles.
