Here's the first and so far the only sunset of 2014 that I was lucky to capture, the golden sun on that day was really amazing.
It's unbelievable how little snow we're having this winter. Actually you can only find it when you hit rough terrain like in this pic. And even here the snow barely covers the grass when normally these fields are impassable this time of the year.
Deeper in the forest the grass is still green, and we're even promised +5C and some rain later in the week... well, usually it's time for Christmas frosts here.
Seems like they're all gone to the USA... the TV says they've got tons of snow and record low temperatures these days... Sorry guys, it should have been ours:)))))
Merry Russian Christmas everyone!

i guess the weather situation is the same in many places this winter. We haven´t seen snow yet this winter in Stockholm, very strange! On the other hand it is quite comfortable with streets without snow and ice:) This is a nice shot of a beautiful sunset. Fine composition and colors (and perfect for a BMW sales brochure:) )
Have a nice evening/

Well it still looks bloody cold to me! We're having a very mild winter, but lots of storms and flooding. Luckily my boat's still on its mooring OK! I love the contrasting oranges and blues here. The car is an optional extra for me, but I guess it anchors the other side of the frame and balances with its black bulk the brightness of the sun. Is it yours by any chance?

beau coup de pub pour BMW; à part ça, le ciel est superbe.

forse il cliema si è un po' trasformato, o forse è solo questione di giorni e tutto torna come sempre, vedremo cosa succederà.
Un bel tramonto fa sembre ben sperare e questo mi sembra ottimo.

I like this beautiful sunset, where the car is an interesting bonus. Great soft light.

I am shivering just looking at it!
Tx to your notes, Global warming seems to have set in this corner of the universe with piles of white flakes seem to have crossed the Atlantic, Marina! and look how big the sun is getting! Brilliant comp and cracking colours in the sky and fantastic feeling of warmth across the snow that you have captured the landscape so well here. An excellent sunset image with great depth. Wonderful shot and tfs

truly delightful spectacle!
But I´m sure you´ll witness of many,many more this year.
But I´m also impressed how excellently you were able to expose both FG and BG.
When I try such composition the FG stay mostly underexposed.You did here really good job as the car is also well presented in your shot.

If BMW see this pic, I think you could have a bright future in advertising :) While I admire the snow and the beautiful sunset, my eyes are constantly drawn to that beautiful piece of wheeled engineering, its a brilliant composition. I love that you included the car, it has made something extra onto an already beautiful scene. Wonderful photo!
All the best

Interesting combo, the BMW on the frozen tundra with the sunset glow.
In California we continue to have drought conditions unlike our eastern U.S. cousins. In Sacramento we just set a record for the least annual rainfall in history, less than 6 inches.
Hopefully Siberia's status is not in jeopardy as a snow leader?

Dobryi vetcher Marina,

Khorochevo dnia, do skorovo

The car looks nice, but the sun set looks the beat. The soft light of the setting sun on the snow is priceless. Very good composition, fitting to be in any ad campaign for the car. The car and hence the imminent presence of its passenger adds vital life to this desolate scene.
Thanks for sharing.
mrichat (1705) 2014-01-08 4:27
Happy new year to you too.
The sunset photo is very colorfull usually,but in this photo the madness of color is wipped and replaced with great light.the orange light is reflected on the car's bonet.there is a blue hue on the snow.A elegant frame to present the beauty.
Thanks for sharing.

Lovely true colors and good light of the early morning sunrise.The car increases the depth of fields in the image.Very well done. TFS.
danos (85785) 2014-01-09 4:57
very nice the view as the presentation of your first sunset of the New Year,with the snows to really are so light in spite of the Artic temperatures of the USA.Good presentation as the colour tints of the sunset.

A magnificent image of snow covered terrain and a sun set.
Wonderful colors and sharpness. A unique composition with the car in the fg.
A beautiful but shivering shot.
