if not for the power lines

These photos would be kinda pretty, I think.
I took them last week, but haven’t really had any time for posting.
The reflection of the rising moon was so beautiful.

I thought the lighting in these morning shots was so pretty.
You can see here that it was snowing that day.

Remember the fridge calendar I put up at the beginning of October? Here’s what it looked like when I took it down Monday morning . . .

First one to post...that never happens...Love the shots Barb of your beautiful view. It looks so peaceful and welcoming outside your window. Love the Calendar, so organized. I am trying to use my iphone calendar which syncs my home computer, however it isn't always that effective as it isn't right in your face.
Enjoy the day...missing you all the way from Port Moody.

Pretty pix--power lines and all. (That's reality, right?)

Would love the calendar! Think mailing it here would work? Hmmm...

Ummm...unless it's a 2010 calendar. Then, it might not arrive in time for 2010, knowing the postal system I'm dealing with here! ;>

You are such a great photographer! Those pictures are beautiful. I really like the coloring of the one with the moon.

Again, your life looks like it is running at break-neck speed. Hope you get some time for rest.

St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
