I like the banner too! The scene reminds me of what I can see by looking out the window to my backyard right now! Sadly a large part of the scene is missing. Hayley! and of course the writing. Though, I could go paint the snow to say The Incredible Journey Continues... Hayley Westenra International. Hmm. I might do that later today and take a picture for all to see! Wonderful design Professor Simon!
The new banner looks wonderful, and the misty light coming through the trees gives it an air of mystery. The picture would make a lovely backdrop to Hayley's "Listen To The Wind", especially with the bird sounds.
There are connotations of 'Winter' from 'Vivaldi's Four Seasons' with the new Banner. The theme is therefore very appropriate... for Hayley's 'River of Dreams' !!! I've heard it said before that Hayley loves crisp snow too
We've had quite a bit of snow here over the last 2-3 days. Thankfully I travel daily on the main roads which are well gritted. I wouldn't want to miss any lectures, especially Constitutional Law or Taxation Law!
Your pictures make me glad to be in England! It looks lovely but I'm pleased I don't have to endure it myself. I love the HWI in the snow but I'm surprised you found your way back into the house to be able to post the pics. That must make you an internet explorer.
