Q&A with Nancy Brother

kaleidimo7981496 asked:
Wow....this is just beautiful! .....and I looooooove your back yard!!! What is snow-shoeing??
Nancy Brother answered:
Hi, snow shoeing is strapping a large frame with some kind of mess woven through it to your winter boots. This helps disperse your weight so you don't sink as far into the deep snow. It's a work out but getting to places to see things like these trees is much easier with them. I love my back yard too. Living in upstate NY I am able to enjoy four seasons. Where are you from? And Thank you
Peter John Reid asked:
You've been busy, nice snow flakes. Look a little harder at the fine branches. Not sure whats happening with the two trees on the right. They seem to be rooted just above the bend in the vertical creek but then continue to the the rivers edge?
Nancy Brother answered:
I think I understand what you are saying, those were disposed to be shadows, but I now see how that is confusing since the trees on the left really don't have strong shadows, thank you.
