It was the last day of the Luzern Carnival - Luzerner Fasnacht 2013.
The city was gradually drowning in a snowfall since the very morning; the snowfall lasted all day, and all evening during the final Monstercorso Parade, and all night - till the following morning when I left Luzern - the city which was so happy, friendly, joyful all week long...
Hopefully, in the near future I will post some photos shot at the Luzern Carnival 2013.
In the background - the famous octagonal 140 ft (43 m) tall Wasserturm ("water tower") on the Reuss River.

This is a very well taken photo (they always are) with a fine combination of red and white, human presence and an interesting tower. The woman is perfectly placed and the overhanging branches provid a good upper frame. A very nice picture from a real winter.

white and red...super artistic! Great capture. I wish we had a bit of that snowfall now, so tired of gray and dirty looking streets.

une superbe capture, un belle composition et Úvidemment la couleur qui ressort sur la neige est du plus bel effet. La beautÚ est bien souvent dans la simplicitÚ. Bien vu.

lots of snow, what is missing in my city. View looks wonderful. Red makes a charming addition. I love the details of the bridge under the snow.
Have a great WE

The red umbrella is of course an eye-catcher and stands out brilliantly against the whiteness of this winter scene. The lady is perfectly placed in a way that makes the composition very well balanced. I like very much the atmosphere of the falling snow which the red umbrella brings a little joy to. A very fine street scene and daily life capture. Well spotted.

Hello Elena - This is a shot with everything going for it. Beautifully composed and with excellent use of DOF, the winter feel is conveyed exceptionally well. The red umbrella makes a wonderful colour feature and I think the placement of the figure within the frame is perfect. Evocative work; really well done. Warm regards Rosemary

very nice the snapshot with the red umbrella to contrast perfect with the whiteness of the scene.
I like the good placement of the passing by of the woman in the scene,as the beauty of it.
I wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year,Danos

what a beuatiful scene you made here. Love the red against the white background. It seems very cold.
Thanks for share this winter feeling.

this is great photo with all the elements of proper composition. The red umbrella provides fantastic contrast as well as focuses attention. Nice framing, colors, contrast and perfect sharpness.

You were indeed very lucky to catch this red umbrella against the grey background. The woman in the f/g brings both life and colours and the b/g brings some interesting buildings into the picture. Excellent!
