    1. Thank you!!! Yes, it is sadly human nature to take what surrounds us for granted 😉 I am glad the photos conveyed the ‘feel’! I didn’t go for the famous tourist shots but just wanted to highlight shadows and spirituality 🙂


  4. Love Brittany, great photos, Travel again ? If only …

    One query What’s wrong with snow, and ice ?

    Ordered to avoid leaving our village, this week’s snow and ice was superb. Thanks for reading my posts

    1. Thank you! Hopefully, we can travel again later in the year. Snow and ice, I can stand; it is the grey limpid sky that comes with them that I baulk at. More snow expected over the weekend but we shall see 😉 Stay Well! 🙂


  5. It’s so grey and murky here, I could happily take up residence in any of your India photographs, especially the
    one with the sheet of sunshine beaming in through that square opening.
