There's been quite a lot of snow since the start of the year and today it's just falling non-stop. The sight of the winter forest is very beautiful now with all kinds of intricate and sharp patterns created by the contrasty black branches covered in white. Hope you enjoy this nature's winter graphics of the early evening hours as I did.

Hi Marina, I see Russia and England look the same- but My guess England is not as cold.. your image reflects the cold and harshness I would expect to see in Russia- although I have never had the chance to visit .. Stay warm Rich

Une belle vue sur la forêt enneigée.
J'aime bien les contrastes avec les troncs en noir et le graphisme.

now snow here in the Vancouver area :) we like it that way :)
the snow is only up high in the mountains, thats the norm for us in Vancouver.
its great to see these winter wonderlands, love the chaos that you mention.
smart contrasts with the light and dark, but perhaps the snow is a little blue-looking? when i take photo's of snowy areas, i always decrease the blues in photoshop, you'd be amazed at the difference!
have a great day

This is indeed a beautiful scene from the depths of Russia! The semi-fallen tree breaks up the verticals of the other trunks, and the path disappearing into the forest makes me want to explore further. I wonder if the highlights are as bright as they could be; or is it the grey surrounding frame that makes the photograph look uncontrasty? I wonder if you'd mind a little WS? Good work.

this is winter shown from its most beautiful side.Snow covered trees have something charming in itself.Even if I´m not a big fan of snoe and low temperatures your composition really appeals to me.I like also the way you framed and zoomed the scene,which looks almost monochromatic.Eye-catching!
Have a nice day

The fallen tree and a branch at right break the verticals of the other trees, the path is leading to the deeper forest, inviting us to visit it. The snow reveals the trees trunks, contrasting with them.
We feel the quietness of this silnt site

it's a bitter cold winter shot, your pov emphasizes the snow detail of the forest in natural colors allowing the eyes to walk through. This is a pleasant icy winterscape in rather moody atmosphere and the whole feeling of the picture but there's a good contrast between the white snow areas and the dark tree branches. Well-balanced scene, nice relationship between the foreground trail which leads into the picture. The crop and exposure are very well controlled, a picture that works, Congrats

Nice snowy landscape and forest, good composition and effect with branches and view of the path.
eldancer1 (26092) 2013-01-19 9:55
Indeed it's chaotic but beautiful winter scene especially from a distance. LOL Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Marina - I love the natural 'chaos' you present here. I read the discussions on the colours/contrasts of the shot. To me your presentation looks moody and reflects the overcast light pretty well to my eye. Very attractive shot with a good composition; I like the way the branches on the RHS of the frame reach into the central area. Warm regards rosemary

Winter scenery in the deep of the forest, almost thought is a B&W shot, Marina.
Clear elements, frozen branchs and ground carpet in white.
Fine taken the cold ambiance on image.

very nice winter scene, i like the mysterious athmosphere of the unknown behind the forest. good natural colors.
maloutim (9633) 2013-03-16 20:13
Great capture indeed ! I like the sense of mystery in your photo, but there is also a sense of calm and peace. I wouldn't have called it chaotic, despite the two falling trees.
Thanks for sharing.

also with us so be it, I guess we have a long winter, snow can no see!
Your photo smothered in the white stuff!
Wish you a nice day
