A remarkable composition with the branches in the foreground. I like it.
15 Jan 2009 5:33am
Ah such words of wisdom!! Great composition bc:-) I love the shape of the steps with all the snow!

And too much of our time is taken up with work! So much of life is missed by the mundane necessity of work when we could be out there discovering, exploring, enjoying this beautiful planet.
A simply beautiful photograph, elegant and charming in composition with such lovely framing. I would have to walk up them, they beckon me inwards. Superb, Sharon

Beautiful view of the stairs. I bet they are tricky with the snow and ice...be careful climbing them!

Wonderfull b/w image, in perfect harmony.

la poésie sans les mots ..... on les invente c'est magnifique !
15 Jan 2009 6:42am
Beautiful words accompanied buy a beautiful photo, the B&W ads to the mood and it's almost a candid with the framing of the branches in the foreground.

This is so beautiful. You do such wonderful things with such simple subjects. You seem to look at everything as a photographer.

At first glance, I thought I was looking at some sort of shutters before relizing they actually were stairs. wonderful image and the words are so true.
15 Jan 2009 7:14am
Beautiful bw, love the stairs and the snow, it's wonderful.
15 Jan 2009 7:17am
Des marches dans l'hiver... Un lieu à haute tendance romantique ! Bien vu !

The quotes you find are always as interesting as your pix (and that's not that easy !) Love that duet of yours, at first sight I didn't see stairs but two shutters fell down in the snow :) Beautiful, anyway*

Great scenery and light, and a quote with quite some truth to it.
15 Jan 2009 8:43am
lol, i remember my few hours of genius :) tho as photographers we get to spread our life out a bit! another great shot, it's like you look a little to the left and get what i would definitely miss :)

I like very much this point of view
15 Jan 2009 11:54am
Outstanding, this duo is very, very impressive, love it!
15 Jan 2009 12:35pm
Very appealing image it really draws you in , I want to walk up those stairs and see what's there!
15 Jan 2009 12:48pm
The resistance of the branches, of the vegetable with the araquiyectura, the steps, is perfect.
15 Jan 2009 12:49pm
I actually thought I was looking at an entrance to a basement until I read other comments! very nice capture! SO cold!!
15 Jan 2009 12:51pm
Those steps look the kind that encourage over-caution . . and a consequent fall ! I like the sorta peep approach to this one.
15 Jan 2009 2:05pm
I really like this one, Sharon. The way you've captured it through the trees and while it's straight on, with the steps not centered in the picture, but balanced out with the tree I think it's an exceptional composition.
15 Jan 2009 2:29pm
What an image of deep emotion and words of wisdom... together they've given a "meaning" to the world beautifully framed through your camera!
15 Jan 2009 2:44pm
Brilliant shot. Such shots are not easy to take. You've a very good observation power.
15 Jan 2009 2:46pm
The treatment given the steps really pulls the image to the next level...lovely composition :)
15 Jan 2009 5:37pm
A beautiful viewt of the stairs through these snowy branches ... well composed and observed.
15 Jan 2009 5:51pm
Great winter mood!
15 Jan 2009 6:17pm
I'd better watch my steps!
15 Jan 2009 6:23pm
I like the lines and tones.
15 Jan 2009 8:40pm
Very good compo! I love the mood of this winter photo
15 Jan 2009 9:36pm
Nice rythm in the composition of the staircases. Beautiful winterpicture.
15 Jan 2009 9:43pm
A beautiful snow picture. Nice compo !
15 Jan 2009 10:16pm
Lovely. Again, there's a sense of emptiness which perfectly captures the feel of this season. Love the way you saw this snap.
15 Jan 2009 10:21pm
Wow! Now this is totally gorgeous!
15 Jan 2009 10:39pm
Hmmm... Mr Emerson nailed that on the head.
Love the starkness of this. Excellent b/w conversion, bc. Feels so cold and harsh.
16 Jan 2009 3:03am
Very nice, looks cold though ;)
16 Jan 2009 3:33am
i like this pattern you found, and you knew just what to do with it.
16 Jan 2009 4:46pm
You're getting quite a following. I don't envy you trying to keep up with the comments. I can barely keep up with ten or so a day.
16 Jan 2009 5:21pm
Very nice, I like stairs ;)
