Merveilleux paysage d'hiver comme nous en connaissons ici cette année. La composition est excellente et les arbres chargé de verglas sont superbes. La tour complète le tout pour une photo agréable à regarder. bel avant plan avec ses pics de neige. Encore plus beau en grand.
Tous mes compliments,

Ich muss sagen, ich beneide Sie. So was habe in diesem Winter night gesehen, ein Maerchenfoto, ein Traum von Winter mit fantastischem Licht, es gefaellt mir ausgezeichnet

The space in front of the building is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the building. The reflection of the light on the snow is nhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

I was cold just looking at your photo that also is successful.
PaulVDV (30803) 2014-02-03 18:18
Apparently it has well snowed there.
A beautiful winter scenery captured on a very sunny day.
I like the luminosity very much and the sight of these trees with their branches bowing down under the snow.
The clouds in the blue sky are a perfect background.
Best regards, Paul

At last a very wintry picture from this year! But you have to find an high enough altitude to get this beautiful picture of snow against a blue sky. But is the snow still here, I assume you have had milder weather here too? A very attractive view.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-02-04 3:53
there are plenty of winter photos on TE right now but yours actually shows the cold and frost in spectacular way. Despite the lovely sun the whole scenery looks dead freezing. The snow covered trees seem to be almost motionless under this weight on their branches.
Very nice light which makes the whole picture more cheerful and good sky for the background.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

So sollte es im Winter aussehen - eine idyllische Landschaft mit Schnee.

Bonsoir, cher Achim,
Magnifique image d'un lieu sous la neige. Une image fort bien construite à tous les nivaux.
Très bonne soirée.

nice and interesting winter picture. Amazing white trees and houses on the mountain. Good panoramic format. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.
josepmarin (58359) 2014-02-05 4:27
this frozen weather station on the top of the mountain offers us a beautiful winter scene, I like the luminosity of the photo, the high contrast between the whiteness of the snow and the blue sky, and the quality of the composition.
A beautiful work.

The name of this place tells much about the season and the scenery, Achim.
Winterberg, the winter mountain in free translation.
Fabulous white, frozen trees and icey ground - beautiful yet very cold.
Impressive shot indeed.

Quel belle image, j'aime ces arbres tout en blanc givrés par le froid énorme ici, tout semble y être figé, un fond bleu qui ce contraste merveilleusement
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-02-07 0:01
what a view. The snow covered landscape is looking so pleasant with those cottages inside it. Excellent light and very good depth. A very well composed one. Tfs & Namaste.

In Belgium get we no winter but these picture is beautiful out of your country.
The tree and tower with snow is wonderful
You chose an excellent angle with a lot depth and perspective.
Sharpness and colours make these picture beautiful.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Have a nice weekend,
TRB (14116) 2014-02-07 12:05
very nice winter squared.
excellent color and clarity, the light is very nice.
ChrisJ (116676) 2014-02-07 12:37
Looks cold! I like the color combination of blue and white with the odd splash of black here and there. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The bg rippled cloud patterns add interest to the sky. Have a nice weekend!
marabu61 (11191) 2014-02-08 6:06
As a true winter person this beautiful snow covered scene looks quite like Paradise to me. The cold temperatures are really palatable here.
While you experience a true winter there, we over here in the Swiss plains are still waiting for winter to arrive, the temperatures have been unusually high this winter and only on the southern side of the alps there is much snow (to much for some areas though)
have a great weekend
karacabeylis (1465) 2014-02-09 5:45
I simply see here a splendid harmony between white and blue. while white seems to be more challenging, blue is waiting its turn in patience.
bukitgolfb301 (43668) 2014-02-09 23:43
Hi Ciao dear Carlo, how are you?
Sorry for my no contact as so busy recently
Very fresh and stunning postcars as your taste. Sharp and high contarts of blue and white is very very comfortable. This is a real beuaty in Winter.
Tight framework and calm color are very remarkable to see as usual as yours.
All the best and have a good new week! TAKERO

Very beautiful winter picture!
It does look cold!!!!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

ein sehr interessantes Dokument! Du füllst eine Lücke, denn bisher hat noch niemand hier diesen in Deutschland wichtigen Ort besucht. Das schöne Winterlicht und die ausgezeichnete Perspektive gefallen sehr. Kompliment!
Angshu (56760) 2014-02-12 21:42
A beautiful scene of the area covreed in snow. It is quite amazing that this place is snowbound for a third of the year! Nice contrast with the blue sky!
mkamionka (39209) 2014-02-18 5:00
beautiful winter scenery. I like the abundance of snow, especially snow covered trees. Today my daughter complained that she did not do a snowman this year which was impossible because we had snow only once at night very briefly this year...
Beautiful light. I like the lovely sky which adds a warm background.
Very well done!
eldancer1 (36343) 2015-01-07 7:06
Wow! This is beautiful but it look so cold! Good pov and sharp details even the snow which is hard to do. Very well done, tfs.
