Alberta Winter

One thing about living in Alberta, the winters may be cold but the sun shines!

I received a lovely note in the mail today. Serge Gouraud had contacted me about a year ago wanting to purchase or license one of my photographs. Today he wanted me to see the launch of his new website, complete with my photo and photo credit, and I’m sharing his new venture with you. If you find yourself traveling to France, you must check out his exquisite accommodation. Besides, anyone who goes about doing business in such an ethical and conscientious way (paying for the use of a photo instead of stealing it, like so many people do) deserves recognition. Please pay a visit to his newly launched, La Caneda.

That would make a good invitation to a winter party – on a card of course:-)

I couldn’t find your photo on the La Caneda web site, but what a beautiful looking place to stay! I’ve never wanted to go to France – till now!

Today’s photo is absolutely stunning. Love the combination of white & blue… and so cool that the twigs look like coral 🙂

A beautiful example of how hoar frost can make branches spectacular. Very nice image. Thanks for the suggested link.
