Hi Everyone,

Here's another winter shoot in my snowy back garden.

Demoralised German shock troops find themselves 'in the bag' in the last year of world war 2, after the end of their early successes, fighting along the Belgium/German border in the Ardennes forest.

Hi Peter,

Very apt. I've just watched the film about the defence of Bastogne "Battleground" again.

Fantastic background paintings and figure expressions. Nice to see the "How I did that" shot too Exclamation

Thanks for sharing, make the most of the snow as it's going soon.

Antony
