Hope to find it...but not new one, right?

EG Wow said...

OH NO! I sure don't want to volunteer to put a new one up. (I'm afraid of heights.)

Definitely not around. But your shot is gorgeous.

Randy said...

I agree with Luis, lovely shot.

Kate said...

The snow looks a bit like powered sugar sprinkled on the tower.

Dina said...

I didn't take it.
Have FIDES, maybe it will be found.
That's sad, that a thing of such symbolic importance would disappear.

Oops...
Maybe it decided to fly somewhere warmer in south...
God bless you!

Dina said...

Ha, that's a relief! So glad it was just a case of a photoblogger and deceiving angles.
