Except for the cars and some minor details this view couldn't have changed very much for the last half century. It looks like the eternal English small town. Very nice and cosy, especially at this time of the year with the Christmas decorations and the cosy yellow streetlights. Just for once the wires obstructing the view are well used.

l'aiuto del polarizzatore è stato utile per accentuare il cielo già molto bello, la luce è piuttosto forte e le ombre sono nette, ma hai fatto un ottimo lavoro e la foto risulta molto piacevole.

Ils doivent passer beaucoup de temps à faire briller leurs bottes, elles sont comme des miroirs. Bel uniforme aussi.Un cadrage vertical qui offre une belle diagonale.

This is indeed a very grey picture but I can find some colour spots on the boats here. I can agree with you, November was certainly a very grey month, but in my experience, it always is! A very good picture with the long lines of poles in the calm water.
A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas Brenda!
Boy, if this isn't an instant association to the season, I don't know what is?!! :) Ice skating in Rockefeller basically screams Xmas...and it doesn't hurt that Santa is out there on blades as well. :)
Such an iconic winters scene from the Big Apple, I've seen this on t.v. more times than I can count...and one of these years I'm actually going to make it there during this period. Or, wait until it warms up in the summer and just enjoy it as a casual, lunchtime plaza. lol
Full of festive atmosphere and a great sense of action and fun...can't help but smile thinking of the holiday on ice. Have a wonderful day. Take it easy.
Friendly wishes from out West,

sono sempre belli questi luoghi, soprattutto se illuminati in questo modo.
Ho fatto il militare a qualche chilometro da qui ed è stato allora che ho scoperto questa regione.
Bella composizione, le torri sono degli ottimi punti di attrazione.

Hello, a very tranquil sea landscape. The cloudy day provided such lovely light especially how it falls on the rocks in the foreground. That beach is just the place for a lovely afternoon walk. Excellent informative notes especially since there is a group of Channel Islands here in California too.
