Photographer's Note

January remains extremely mild in most of Northern Europe this year. If it weren't for the naked trees, one would think that spring was here. The south of Luxembourg has lots of good farmland separated by small woods and lots of narrow country roads ideal for cycling. And with gently rolling hills it makes the cycling a real pleasure - not to mention views like this.

I tried to work with thirds in this one, having the horizon only one third into the frame from below and the tree way over in the last third on the right.

I cropped slightly (to avoid a bit of road showing at the bottom), resized, enhanced contrast, saturated a bit and sharpened (all in moderate measures I hope).
