There is a high feeling of winter joy as Beijing people re-visit great sites enhanced with a white touch of snow. Just behind the forbidden city are five temples. Special places and beautiful always. But with a rare winter snow fall these temples cast a different view, special, and beautiful. They stand at the very center of Beijing city. From them in all directions expands this great city, but today it seems all white and lost as the snow blankets everything and hides all within a short distance.

first of all, a Happy New Year 2010 to you!!!
This is a VERY beautiful, very artistic, interesting photo - like all your photos! I like the composition a lot! and the people's red clothes emphasize the cold snowy surroundings very nicely :)
I wish you good luck!
Warm wishes from very frosty Stockholm,
