As I began in the article preceding this ...
"I spend the bulk of my time in two places ... although one is in the city of Philadelphia an the other in the mountains of upstate Pennsylvania, I am close to forests and streams in both. If you know me at all, you know that when the snow blankets the forest floor and covers the stream banks, I'll be there. Here are a number of my favorite snow scenes, you may have seen some of them before but, in the words of John Keats ...
A thing of beauty is a joy forever;
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness.
And now, I've said it again ... how redundant of me ... but maybe you haven't seen the preceding article, so, why not see it first, then come back.
Here's a technical thing about some of the images (you can skip this if it's of no interest). Some of the images in this article began as 35mm color slides ... transparencies taken with film. To convert them to digital images, they must first be scanned. I like to explain a scanner as a kind of digital camera one that takes pictures of other pictures (prints, negative or slides) and creates an electronic copy ... a scan.
I'll wrap this up for now ... but if you want to know more, please, just ask questions. One more thing ... depending the quality of the scanner and the knowledge of the person using it, it's actually possible to make the scanned image, BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL ... really!
