Spring is late this year, but daytime temperatures are finally above zero.
This one is from last year. Melting snow is dripping from trees to the brook between Särkijärvi and Suolijärvi lakes.

Hi Kari. Nice atmosphere and a time of transience as winter gives way to spring. The drops from the melting snow above has also made indentations in the snow. A very good control of light reveals the textures of the snow. Best wishes. Klaudio.

yes, the "drip drop" has finally begun but it doesn't look attractive at all here at my place as it is in your picture. You've created quite a poetic image with all those circles on the water and gentle light filling the picture. Very nice work!
Thanks and cheers

This is beautiful with the melting snow dripping on the water creating fine ripples. Lovely details with natural tone and colors. Glad to hear that you are now above zero :-)
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

Nice picture Ktanska,
You capture very well the oscillation on the water surface, it is the snow melting period

una bella composizione, semplice ed efficace nello stesso tempo.
Il ruscello con il suo percorso curvo riempe la composizione in maniera molto gradevole etrasforma in luogo di sogno questo luogo dove acqua, e neve si contendono il suolo.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

A very beautiful and pronmising view! There is a strong feeling of springtime in this picture. I wish I could hear this too, I guess there were a lot of birds singing in the trees here. A beautiful and well composed picture!

Good evening kari,
A magnificent forest scenery, with excelent DOF and the white snow contrast well with the trees. Light coming through gave a fabulous backlight that enhanced details over the "busy" pic. space.
Enjoy your weekend,

Hi Kari !!
I grew up in the snow in southern Argentina..... so when I see a landscape like this one I experience a quick life reversal and I go back to my childhood.
I love your photo ....... only 3 colours but the scene is breathtaking !!!

this is very nice and eye pleasing photo with classic composition and well chosen POV. I like especially the drops on the stream which liven up the whole picture. Nice and natural colors and perfectly given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Kari - I love this shot. The dark waters of the stream wend their way through the shot and are finely contrasted by the white snow. The square crop works so well here and I love the way you have cropped the height from the trees and focused the view on the ripples in the water. Superb. Warm regards Rosemary

Such simple and pure nature shot, don't need much to make a wonderful shot, I need a lot and always in search of monumental subject to make good shot. You just make good photo with whatever in the woods. I love the dripping of the melting snow, creating nice patterns on the stream. Good depth and POV that lead us in to the woods.
