A Little More of the Snow Dust

While on our quest to find some good snow shots yesterday, we drove on some roads that are not too far from our house but on which we had never been. Actually, we didn't even know some of them, including the one in today's photo, existed. This road runs along the ridge of a small hill, and it ends very close to where I shot the photo of the barn that I posted yesterday. All of this may look very rural, but there are thousands of suburban homes within a mile radius of where I shot both photos.

Regarding what I found odd when I looked at both yesterday's photo and the one I posted in August: The horses are in the exact same positions, leading me to believe they are huge, wooden cutouts. I'm going to have to drive by there, again, to check it out.

Reminds me of a house around the corner from where we used to live that had the lushes flower gardens even in the dead of winter. My dog ran up in there one day and I when to get her out -- -- that's when I discovered the were fake.

I was reading your background. I myself am a recovering journalist -- I helped take two newspapers from oblivion to top of their market -- but that was more years ago that I will confess to.

Nice photo. I like the little mystery involved.

Yes I'm sure you are right about the horses being not real - far too much of a coincidence not to be. Maybe the barn isn't real either - maybe the whole place harbours some dark secret - maybe my imagination to getting away with me!

Very nice road travel this must be.
Now you also left me wondering what is the real nature of those horses.

What a pretty sight! The curving road looks so dangerous and yet so sexy.
