MY WORLD - The Waterloo winterly battlefield



More participants here

Living in this historical place where Napoleon lost his battle, I wanted to see how the Lion looks like when it has snowed (which doesn't happen very often in Belgium)

How interesting to see the Waterloo battlefield.
A little bit of snow is always fun to photograph and play in.

I wonder what Napoleon would have thought of the snow...

You have a lovely street and even though the snow is starting to melt, it still looks lovely and fresh.

Let the bones ot the soldiers rest under the white blanket of snow. That war such a bloody battle with incredible loss of life. The necessity was a sad blot on humanity.

I am glad you are enjoying a little touch of Winter with snow.
We have had a deep Siberian High which has dropped out temperature to -40C or more at times. Of course, we have lots of snow about 3 feet deep.

Even though I don't like snow I liked the pictures.
