The variety of weather in my region is brought by different air masses. Six basic types affect the weather of Northern Europe. They can bring anything from tropical warm and humid days to arctic cold depending on the type of air mass. The most severe weather usually occurs when dry-cold continental polar air clashes with warm-humid maritime tropical air. In most winters, and certainly those in the last 20 years, our winds normally come from the south-west maintaining our relatively mild winters.
The photo shows the river Eider near Hamdorf on a calm and cold February day. Broad meadows and moors through which the river gently flows: the Eider river landscape is the largest lowland area in Schleswig-Holstein. Boating and fishing are unique experiences for visitors who want to enjoy the fascinating river landscape. The sailing season however is limited to the summer which can be fairly wet, although enjoying long days. It begins at the end of April/beginning of May and ends about 1st of October. Sailing is not considered to be a rich man’s pastime but a part of the way of life for ordinary people.

nice and peaceful picture with slightly muted light which adds to the whole mood. Good POV to shoot from, with wooden pier being a strong point of focus in the foreground. Natural colors and very well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

The strong graphical lines formed by the piers and mooring posts contrast nicely with the serene and peaceful landscape in the background. I like the soft light and muted tones.

Good evening harriet,
Superbly done with light, clarity and DOF on a grey cloudy day.
The number of wooden jeties stretched out to the water area, are superbly shown and some mirror on surface, gave good scale about the place.
Fine taken shot.

dalla foto noto che il clima sembra essersi addolcito e la neve non domina più il paesaggio.
Una delle tue solite e sempre piacevoli composizioni nelle quali acqua e terra convivono tranquillamente e mostrano tutta le pace e la bellezza della natura lontano dai luoghi abitati.
Ottima anche la nitidezza e morbidi e gradevoli i colori.
Ciao e buona serata

how different this place looks when the weather and the light change. This quiet, melancholic mood and harmonious subdued colours are very appealing too. The scenery is displayed in a wonderful arrangement and the stillness gives it a fine, graphical aspect. The bare tree on the right is such an elegant element and the water is a perfect mirror of the setting and the sky. The activities through which people enjoy this place sound great. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

C'est une superbe photo, l'eau calme et sombre crée de magnifiques reflets, d'une belle netteté.
Une composition bien cadrée, bien construite.

This photo would be a joy for every lover of triangles and other geometric figures, as for the lovers of red details and reflections. In fact anyone could enjoy this pleasant view of an extemely calm water and a jetty that for the time being is empty and deserted but which in a few months once again will be filled with happy, lightly dressed holiday-makers. And the sky will then no doubt be much bluer and the light much brighter.
papagolf21 (80926) 2014-02-24 14:48
Bonsoir, chère Harriet,
Ce ponton en retour d'équerre est astucieusement mis en scène pour donner à la composition une force de créativité.
De plus, l'arbre dépouillé est également un sujet fort de la réalisation.
C'est beau !

sehr schön hast Du dies festgehalten.
Toll auch mit der Spiegelung,

The weather is so important whether it be for hobbies, work or lifestyle.
Your photograph shows a very tranquil day, grey but calm.
The jetty, sharp and textured, makes a most interesting lead, ensuring that we follow its guide around and into the frame.
Your shot is sharp, nicely balanced by the trees and with a good sense of depth. The importance of the far tree cannot be overstated.
Have a great week,

Winter got we this year not, this have I never experienced nevertheless I am not more young!
Wonderful panorama view in background
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
A nice composition, good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
saxo042 (35146) 2014-02-25 6:49
Looks like that pleasant day we had in this area in the beginning of December, absolutely no wind at all. It must have been the same kind of weather that day! This is a very attractive view. The jetty and and that red thing are providing lines and angles that are perfectly positioned in the composition. Is this far from "Zum Alten Fährhaus"?
abmdsudi (35250) 2014-02-25 7:57
Superbly atmospheric winter mood minus the bright sun light just enough to make it interesting of a kind of stillness and the lovely distant mist that this conveys. The eye is lead strongly into the image so well from the corners to the horizon adding the enormous depth to the scene with the wooden jetty glues as strong anchor point. I like the compo, the natural wintry tones and bit of vivid colour just to click the eye. It's lovely and peaceful image taken in extremely good clarity that you have managed the exposure competently. You've pulled off a really nice shot here! Congrats.
Thks to your good narratives.

Ciao Harriet, lovely composition with fascinating reflections, beautiful winter view, great season atmosphere, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
jemaflor (76546) 2014-02-27 11:31
A well balanced composition with the pier in the Fg and the tree on the right side, beautiful calm water with this perfect mirror.
Waylim (24302) 2014-02-27 12:24
Dispite the cold and gray day, you manage to get a very beautiful photo. I love the reflection, especially of the deck and the tree. Good POV and great use of the deck leading in. There is a semi melodramatic mood to the overall atmosphere. I like it and good quality photo with excellent composition.
notrap (5176) 2014-02-27 13:08
dieses Foto als Quadrat ist ein echter Knaller, ruhige Farben, dynamische Linien - als Wandbild zur Kontemplation in einer Arztpraxis sehr gut vorstellbar! Gefällt mir sehr gut!
Grüße in den windstillen Norden!
Buin (42222) 2014-02-28 12:31
Schöner kann man "Stille" kaum darstellen. Diese perfekten Spiegelungen sind faszinierend und verstärken diesen Eindruck auf wunderschöne Weise.
Das ist weit mehr als ein Foto ... ein Bild zum "hineinträumen". Eines Deiner stärksten!
Wie üblich wieder ein vorbildlicher Begleittext! Ein "useful" dafür ist eigentlich zu wenig.
Herzliche Grüße aus dem wieder recht kühlen Siegerland - und ein schönes Wochenende!
delpeoples (50263) 2014-03-01 22:13
A beautiful wintry scene here, with the ice blue colours doing their job to convey the cold and crispness of the northern winter. I love the bare trees, the only warm colour in the image, and which are beautifully reflected in the silvery blue mirror which is this lake. Excellent photo of a landscape that is so pretty and untouched.
marina7 (7781) 2014-03-03 11:43
such a tranquil and relaxing image with subdued light and colors! The red railings are a nice addition to the scene giving it a bright accent. Lovely perspective too and perfect sharpness. My compliments and best wishes!
