Hi TE friends
During my business trip to Poland, I had the opportunity to enjoy very low temperatures. One day the temperature reached 25 degrees below zero
There was so many snow, the temperature was very low and I saw many and beautiful houses covered by snow, like this one. This picture was taken in front of factory I was visiting

bella immagine invernale, anche se al momento preferisco godermi gli ultimi giorni estivi. Sono sempre quelli più freschi :)
Ottimi i dettagli con l'albero innevato al centro a dare dinamicità e colori molto naturali.

Une image sortie du tiroir ici avec un très bon rendu du blanc engendré par une exposition précise.

Winter is coming:((((
It must have been something exotic for you to experience such temperatures:)
Have a good time, Gosia

with the temperatures that have to roma is a pleasure to see a photo with the snow, perhaps here to make too much cold!!!

Hello Aires, this weather would have been quite a change to what you;re used to. I don't think I've ever seen snow on a roof that thick before. Your DOF here is really good throughout the image and you've controlled the exposure and aperture very well. Nice work, Lisa.

Bom dia Aires
25 graus abaixo de zero é terrível. A paisagem cheia de neve e essa árvore vestindo branco são espetaculares.
Belíssimo manto branco. Parabéns.

pela imagem e sua nota deu pra imaginar o frio da região mesmo. Acho que não me acostumaria com esse frio, ainda mais com o clima quente aqui do Brasil. Bonita a foto e a textura da neve.
Parabéns e Abraço

Hi Aires, I can see that you liked my country. Fantastic cushions of snow. How could you stand such low temperatures, something unusual for Portuguese. But we have still summer, I do not want to think about winter yet:)). Nice photo

This is a romantic and fascinating impression. The snow is wonderful to see. I'm waiting for the wintertime 2009/2010

so now you are showing some pictures from Poland and I will upload finally some of my pics from Portugal.
You caught here a really beautiful winter view, with few interesting elements covered with snow. Very pretty composition and presentation.
It is really hard to show the snow without overexposing -you did a really good job,

In a few months we are there again hehehe!
This is well recorded winter scene, good light management with well exposed snow in sunlight...
The balanced composition is appealing, and the brown house contrast effectively with the cool surroundings!
