Thank you… Cross I couldn’t quite fit that third shadow in properly! There is snow, the brightness of that sun makes you think there isn’t any! :)

Isn’t it funny how the mind works? I totally looked at that blue sky and went ‘Oh lovely, the snow must be gone!’ Love the colours. What’s with the orange robes?

I didnt see the snow either to start with. Love the contrasting colours of the orange and blue sky.

Ooooh interesting photo! There is so much going on, I am loving the orange type boiler suits that are being worn, the bright bright blue sky whilst there is still snow on the ground!!

I am assuming it’s still cold?!?!

Thank you for linking up Emma X

Hare Hare, My sweet Lord, Hare Krishna… this takes me back to the 1980s when they were all over Harrow. I didn’t know they were still going.

Yep, they are still huge I think… My friends and I used to visit their tent at festivals when we were poor students and we were starving! :)

Love that sun – this looks more like my neck of the woods than yours – except most of our orange robes belong to Buddhist monks…
