Taken on a cold and foggy december afternoon.
I liked the pastel colors and the mood.

Soft light, color tones and a beautiful winter foggy atmosphere in a splendid and simple wonderful composition. Low horizon and the tree in a so well located enquadrement. Clear picture, good handling of light and a very nice and well done composition.
Congratulations for this great picture. My best Regards.

Lonely trees are allways an attraction for the eye of the photographer. This one is beautifuly composed and captured. The foggy mist in the background gives a special atmosphere. Congratulations!
GrahamB (939) 2006-01-05 4:53
I like the cool misty atmosphere you have captured here. The single tree in the forground against the faint ones in the background mist makes an effective composition.

It work depressive and sad for me, in the same moment very peaceful and quiet. Well done.

Bonjour mon ami Hermann,
Un arbre vit au rythme des quatre saisons, il se pare de premiers bourgeons au printemps, développe sa parure l'été, se transforme en automne de mille couleurs, et puis, quand vient l'hiver frissonne de ses branches dépouillées.
La beauté d'un arbre reste et demeure un enchantement pour les yeux.
Très belle réalisation. La composition est un véritable plaisir pour les yeux.

Great mood,and i appreciate the fog and colors on sky, usually in this kind of picture sky are always grey not here.
I like that

Elegant compo with this fine winter mist setting. The lone tree is just enough as our main focus. Good work Hermann

Guten Tag Hermann
Marvellous graphism of the large, dark, silhouetted, tre,e against the mysterious fog, which adds mood & atmosphere. Good work!
Steft (5975) 2006-01-05 8:10
Good photo, it has a mysterieus atmosphere. I like the classical 1/3 1/3-composition. The soft shapes of the trees in the background are also beautiful.

lonely but happy, voilà ce que ce dit cet arbre, car il est bien situé, pas comme certains en plein centre des villes, qui subissent chaque jour des agressions.
J'aime beaucoup cette ambiance brumeuse qui laisse tout de même voir que le ciel est bleu et dégagé par dessus.
Les clotures nous rappellent aussi qu'il est bien difficile de se balader dans les campagnes avec toutes ces propriétés et domaines privés.
Excellent et belle ambiznce.

There's something very effective about a winter tree set against a plain sky. I love the misty atmosphere on this one, I also like the glimpse we have of the more distant trees.
sebautourdumond (3108) 2006-01-05 11:34
belle image, belle lumière qui donne une belle ambiance de matin brumeux. Belle compo également.

beautiful moody shot with great tones and a good light. I like the melancholy. The beautiful side from the Niederrhein.
john_c (24666) 2006-01-05 12:24
A simple but extremely effective composition. The fog and mist swirl about the ghostly trees. The foreground is perfectly framed with the little fence and pleasing grass. I like this shot very much, Hermann. Great ambience.
carper (96) 2006-01-05 12:29
Ik hou ook zo van dergelijke shots, goede sfeer foto, mooie compositie, goed werk.
jmdaoudal (82) 2006-01-05 12:36
this a nice construction of picture using the tree the fog and the light coming behind.
great winter mood for this countyside landscape.
I like it
weswang (18223) 2006-01-05 12:44
Hi Hermann, It looks that everyone has a favorite lone tree. Yours is unique becaue of the atmosphere created by the fog. A well taken picture to show the mood in the fog.
sergecross (3438) 2006-01-05 13:39
Hermann, very nice place. I like the calmed scene and the capture has a great interpretation.
Graal (103034) 2006-01-05 13:42
nice composition, I like it a lot. Fog and tree with the peaceful atmosphere. Good capture and well done.
nwoehnl (122) 2006-01-05 14:43
Good entry into the "lonely tree" genre, Hermann. I like the authentic rendition of the foggy mood and the prevalent blue tones. Good framing with the off-centered tree silhouette and the low fence poles.
Amirsun (2122) 2006-01-05 15:10
What a great atmosphere and what nice compoisitoin using this lone tree isolated from the background with the fog. Nice shot with good details and composition.
Tanks for posting.
jbweasle (9393) 2006-01-05 15:16
I like this dark and detailed tree set against the foggy background. It's a good alternative to the more standard silhouettes.
alvaraalto (16160) 2006-01-05 16:11
Happy new year for you and your family.
I'm always fascinated by these vague silhouettes of trees in a misty landscape. The different grey tones are intriguing me. Once I will try to paint this mood.
Cormac (26565) 2006-01-05 16:13
Good, moody shot! The simplicity of this is it's charm, with the lone tree standing out against the cold fog. The intricate pattern of the bare branches is interesting, and the positioning of the tree is just right. This is very effective in conveying the winter mood. Great shot!
rosaline (0) 2006-01-05 16:15
Good atmospheric shot here with good composition. The tree is nicely placed off center and the fog adds nicely to the atmosphere. A good exposure and well managed light. Good work.
Tue (39404) 2006-01-05 17:25
This lonely tree stands here nicely in the field in those foggy circumstances. The contrast is nice here. Well done! :-)
Didi (60588) 2006-01-06 3:49
Une composition classique mais très appréciable par la présence de la brume.
La luminosité est très agréable.
A traditional but very appreciable composition by the presence of the fog. The luminosity is very pleasant.
PixelTerror (0) 2006-01-06 4:26
he he now you critique your own photos ;-)
You steal the words I could have written here, the autumn morning atmosphere is excellent here and I like the trees softly emerging from the fog in the background.
Have a nice week end,
bantonbuju (51815) 2006-01-06 12:27

Beautiful atmmospheric shot. A well handled scene of such simplicity. Many people would not have seen the potential of such a lovely scene.
PLD_images (7149) 2006-01-06 13:50
What a lovely, quiet and mystical scene you offer us. I really enjoy how the fog gives a lot of atmosphere to the photo.
Have a good day - Paul
jhm (155249) 2006-01-06 13:58
Sorry ik ben deels afwezig geweest door opnamen ziekenhuis.
De nevelige achtergrond maakt uw foto zeer misterieus en de boom in de voorgrond bepaald de samenstelling.
Goed gezien Hermann,
hdl (7035) 2006-01-09 7:39
Excellent shot; great mood and good quality. I have such a tree in my neighbourhood too and I may have said to myself a hundred times: go take a picture of the tree; but I never did (for some reason). You show me I was wrong not to do it.
huynt (5079) 2006-01-10 4:36
It is very great, very interesting. Simple but too nice. Well done. Huy
KevRyan (22956) 2006-01-10 13:21
A nice subtly toned shot Hermann - hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year - I had a great time with Jerzy in Poland and brought the grey skies back with me!
I've always liked images of lone trees and this one is so nicely balanced by the other details - the fence and the background trees - and you're right it all conveys such a timeless/spaceless sort of mood.
best wishes Kev
MvS (4163) 2006-01-10 16:58
Great round shape of the tree, and you created a nice atmosphere with the colours and the mist.
Luan (12971) 2006-01-11 4:24
this picture is a kind of puff of fresh air. 100% natural, simple but effective composition. The overall smooth colors tons is very pleasant to look at.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2006-01-11 7:19
I like this beautiful with a lonely tree in the smoke. Nice frame . Well done, i put in the theme.
