    Thank you. Want to know how I got the colour in the second one? I pulled out my cell phone cam and shot the picture through by bike goggles...

    I really do... All year round. We have no snow at the moment, but the winter tires are on, complete with studs and all.

    I don't actually, but my daughter does, and for several reasons I always go with her: First of all, it is a great opportunity to spend time together and see her skills grow. It is also very different from what I do at work, and i think I need the contrast. Then there is the fact that I usually get along very well with animals, horses included. I simply like them.

    I am planning to try it myself though, and I think the missus would like to give it a go as well.

    Oh well that's great that you go with your daughter it's great exercise, you use most of the same muscles as when riding a bike, you'd probably do very well on a horse!

    I shall find out in due time. I have never spent time on horseback, but I have in fact managed to ride camels for hours on end without experiencing any ill effects.

    I believe the cats are lynxes. Are they native to Sweeden, Claes?

    Great trick with the goggles! I assume they were tinted? As to the bull, I didn't look under the hood to check.

    Yours truly (To the left, I might add) with Power Play at Ekeby Riding School, Eskilstuna, Sweden.
    Your left or our left?

    We miss the snow now, Claes. It is supposed to be winter, but no proper snow.

    Anyway, we got a digital camera for christmas and did some photos.

    Winter is late. There is too little snow - and this was taken on a good day.

    Correct on both accounts

    Just one of many up my sleeve. Yes, slightly tinted. It was in fact the ones I'm wearing in my avatar picture (I know - They appear black in the picture).

    We have no snow either, but saying that I actually miss the stuff would not be entirely true... I have been shoveling enough of it around over the years.

    this pic confused me, I was just wondering what those light-brown colored are! LEAVES!

    I did like it. Isn`t it a village?
    Villages in my country look like this.. I love such views.

    They are all picturesque.

    Very creative picture, and good results. Good job there. I like both, but I think I prefer the black one. Just a word of caution (I'm sure you thought about it, but others may not): Be very careful when taking such pictures. Aiming a camera at the sun could damage both it, and more importantly, your eye in no time flat.

    ASAP. I may get a bit done during this weekend, but one never knows: My wife just mentioned that she wants some work done. That sounds a lot like "heavy manual labour". We shall see
