What were they looking at?

This is the view that the couple in my previous post were looking at (Leif Hagen asked and here it is for you to see!)

Some of you pointed out that the "image" that most people have of Italy is definitely without snow and I can understand it, since Italy is always associated with sunlit views. I am therefore particularly glad to show you something different!

The snowfall went on for many hours and yesterday morning there were at least 15 cm of snow!
I had a long walk and took some nice shots, while yesterday I barely took any, so I won't be able to show you the "big" snow (some of you will laugh at it, I know...).
Now, please, forgive me if I post a second pic. I just want to show you what those lovers saw on
the opposite side of the bridge, during their romantic stroll through the snowflakes...

It’s that time of year again! I’m doing the rounds and apologising for my complete failure to more regularly offer comment on everybody’s incredible efforts for the year. I know how hard it can be to keep up with the daily grind of everyday posting, and want to thank you for your efforts.

I especially want to wish festive greetings for all from down here at [nearly] the end of the world, the bottom of Tasmania.

So, if you could delete whatever is not applicable, I’d like to wish you a very pleasant/merry/happy/wonderful/safe Amaterasu; Ashurall; Beiwe; Choimus; Christmas; Dazh Boh; Dongzhi; Goru; Hanukkah; Hogmanay; Junkanoo; Karachun; Koleda; Lenæa; Meán Geimhridh; Modranicht; New Years; Ras as-Sana; Rozhanitsa Feast; Şeva Zistanê; shōgatsu; Summer Solstice [if you're in the Southern Hemisphere]; Sviatki; Winter solstice [if you're in the Northern Hemisphere]; Yalda; Yule-tide; Ziemassvētki; and Коляда!

With a hearty three cheers from Kris, Jen, Henry and Ezra!

Thank you for this incredibly beautiful and different view of Verona, although I think it is a little cold for me (29 degrees here today, although the forecast is for heavy rain on Christmas Day). I am also pleased to see that you are promoting Australian Ugg Boots and not the US imitators.

Very pretty view, and nice shots.
The weather is quite "mysterious" .

Seriously looks like a picture postcard, as if time has stopped.

That brick building is incredible. Wow.
