T'was not the cow..... by ruthmouch

T'was not the cow.....

but the kite that jumped over the moon!!!! (if you have binoculars you can see the moon!)

Grace and I took the "fresh air " option and we spent a glorious morning on the slopes, whizzing down the piste, hearing that crunch-crunch and gawping at amazing views. (A young lady needs to be able to ski: so it was educational!!)

This pic is from Sunday when we took the little people in the family to sledge and make snowmen,.....the slopes are not the place for my friend Canon when I am on skies!!!!

Once again huge Thankyous to each one for comments and favs and PP too!!! :-)
Stunning!

Wonderful. I once learnt that nursery rhyme about the cow:
Hey diddle diddle,
The Cat and the fiddle,
The Cow jumped over the moon,
The little Dog laughed
To see such craft,
And the Dish ran away with the Spoon.

So colorful! =)

That's one huge kite. Nicely captured with the moon.
January 23rd, 2013  
Great capture. I see that little moon up there.

Lovely strong colours and a real sense of space, it makes me think of a book called 'The Kite Runner'.
January 23rd, 2013  
Amazing shot! Beautiful colors! You have such a talent for finding the moment to capture a great shot!
January 23rd, 2013  
But was it a cow flying the kite?
January 23rd, 2013  
wow that sky is so blue! love this Ruth
January 23rd, 2013  
Nice positioning and great color. The corner of the hill gives it scale.
January 23rd, 2013  
Another beauty Ruth! I know the school closures are a pain but at least you are being productive with them!
January 23rd, 2013  
A fabulous splash of colour against a fabulous blue sky!
January 23rd, 2013  
So beautiful!
January 23rd, 2013  
Wonderful! Love it!
January 23rd, 2013  
Fantastic shot!
January 23rd, 2013  
Great use of negative space to make the kite, the moon, the slope even more potent
January 23rd, 2013  
Great shot.
January 23rd, 2013  
Fabulous composition and love that brilliant blue!

Oh, Ruth!! I hate having missed one single shot of your project. . .I am going to try to find the time to catch up, but suffice it to say that your words on my end of project slideshow were so very kind and lovely - you really touched my heart. Thank you from the bottom of it - and now I'm really looking forward to trying to take a more relaxed approach here. Can't wait to see more of your wonders!
January 24th, 2013  
beautiful capture! love the minimalism and the wonderfully vibrant colours!
January 24th, 2013  
nice capture, good lighting and colour
January 24th, 2013  
How was I not following you! Wonderful shots. To my ignorant North American brain, Lebanon is all sand and desert! How great it is to see the mountains and snow.
January 24th, 2013  
@jwlynn64 No problem!!! I learnt so much when we lived in SC for a year!
January 24th, 2013  
As a kite lover I think this is fab! Love that you can see all you need to place you there, the snow, the sky and fun! Fabulous Ruth!
January 24th, 2013  
Beautiful capture and sky.

January 24th, 2013  
Love it
January 24th, 2013  
gorgeous shot, ruth.
January 24th, 2013  
look at that beautiful blue sky ! Nice colorful kite....(and the snow made me look twice....we usually do kite on the beach :) )
January 24th, 2013  
Perfect! Lovely shot!
January 24th, 2013  
Wonderful colours and composition! You have amazing light where you are.
January 24th, 2013  
Flying high, flying free. I do like the feeling of freedom in the shot.
January 25th, 2013  
Look at that blue sky! Just gorgeous!
January 25th, 2013  
I really like how you composed this Ruth! The bright colored kite against the brilliant blue sky and catching a glimpse of the snow. Not your typical kite flying weather.
January 25th, 2013  
Like the bright colors and simple composition.
January 25th, 2013  
Love the simplicity, the bright colours and the dash of moon.
January 26th, 2013  
Great color and minimalism. A slightly different style for you. :-)
