Cottage in the woods

A winter are two ago my husband and I were travelingl down this country road in Rhinebeck NY.  The freshly fallen snow looked so beautiful and then we happened upon this cottage; and of course I had to pull over to take some shots, I took several so did my husband.   The cottage looked like something straight out of a story book.  For some reason when I look at it, all I can think of of is little Red Riding Hood on her way to grandma's house.

Now that I have it framed like this I can see what a great postcard it would be too.

Jennifer ~ Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.  I love the photo... you certainly are a talented photographer.  This would make a very nice postcard to send with a "winter message"!  Wishing you all the best in the coming year.

Jennifer, That does look like what I would picture Grandma's cottage to be.  By the way ever since I read about you being under the weather I have been under the weather.  I hope you are on the mend.  I'm very slowly getting better.

Joan That idea did cross my mind.  I wish you all the best too.

Hi Lynda this is one of those shots I could not resist.  Do you think there is a warm fire and hot chocolate inside? ---:)

Marchel so sorry to hear it happened to you too.  I am not 100 percent back to my old self but is getting there.  However I did get lots of tedious stuff  done on my laptop.  Thanks for asking and I hope you feel better soon.

Jennifer,

It is a beautiful find. The white of the building and the white of the snow blend together nicely. :)

Jennifer, this definitely looks like a story book cottage.  Little red riding hood?  Maybe because of the red door.....  Great photo and lovely presentation.
