Looks like a playground gone mad with all the colored pots and rides and then the snow. Nicely exposed.
Les Auld: Actually it is the crazy golf Dawn, so a playground is just right. Thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: It does indeed Charles, thanks for the comment.

Don't these places look strange in the snow Les!
Les Auld: Strangely out of place Chris, thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: A bright day helped Linda, thanks for the comment.
The clouds make a great frame to this fun scene.
Les Auld: So they do Mary, thanks for the comment.
I like this Les, especially all those little blobs of colour.
Les Auld: So do I Brian, the snow does help with teh picture. Thanks for the comment.
Gorgeous 'chocolate box' picture Les. The pastel colours on the wall are fabulous. The entrance looks like a spanish curch and without the right hand side of the picture and of course, the snow, I would have said the shot was taken in the Med somewhere!
Les Auld: Strangely enough there is a Moroccan theme to the place Pamela, thanks for the comment.
that white stuff has cost me tooooooo much money lately Les so i shall be glad to see the back of it but this does look great smile
Les Auld: Two sides of the same coin I suppose Tim, thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: Not may visitors in the winter Derek, thanks for the comment.

Best time to see the funfair when there;s no kids about; shame it's closed, though! The colours stand out against the snow.
Les Auld: It makes a change from trees in the snow Alan, thanks for the comment.
