    Thanks for the nice comments and VOTES! Nowadays there is a cafe, which we visit nearly every week.

    This could be easily a classic winter postcard, so nicely attractive in shapes thanks to the fence, that also adds a beautiful frame with the trees to the central snowy space; peaceful and cold all around... great pic for the theme, congrats!!! :-)

    The spider web ornamental fence adds a enchantment to a great outdoors scene. Very nice composition.

    Beautiful capture. I love how the branches on the left mimic the shape of the gate

    This is so serene - it looks like something out of a fairy tale. What a beautiful capture.

    What an interesting gateway!! Looks like you were blessed with a fresh snowfall for your picture. Great shot! One of favorites.

    In 1904 the estate, about 30km north of Helsinki, was bought by Konstantin Kapitanowitsch Uschkoff, a rich man from Moscow. He let to build this gate and it is said to have included two golden spiders adorned with rubies. More about the estate you find here: http://www.lottamuseo.com/eng/index.html

    O.k. I really dislike the spider web motif on the otherwise beautifully sculpted gate but otherwise, I really like the composition, subject, lighting. You have made the best of what you could from this perspective. TT.

    I like this snow picture as the snow is new and not touched by the human hand. The gates invite you to go forward and explore.
