I remember as a child,
And even yet today,
The beauty and splendor,
Of a freshly fallen snow.
Walking through the forest,
And gazing down
Into the wintered valley below,
I was struck with awe.
A breathtaking beauty laid before my eyes.
No indiscriminately placed fluff,
But a covering fashioned by the Master,
Was enrapturing my senses.
Evergreen branches covered in white,
And dripping icicles
Reflecting the new day's sun,
Created a world of crystalline beauty.
Down in the valley,
I saw blanketed fields and rooftops,
And chimney smoke spiraling upward.
I felt peace and serenity before me,
As the magnificence of the view
Touched my heart.
The quiet and pristine picture
Brushed by the Master's hand,
Is more majestic and mighty
Than any man could ever make.

A truly beautiful composition, This is highly evocative of your previous post, and just as beautiful. I can see faintly in the sky a sled drawn by seven reindeer, and a corpulent man in a red suit driving the sled. But it is very faint!

a good picture difficult to make with a light no easy, good work, the lanscape under the snow is dramatical

Salut Veronica, pur si simplu fantastic! Padure din spate arata ca plina cu mistere, si face ca automat te concentrezi pe partile deschise din poza ta.

At first glance, it's hard to guess what it is,
But after a few moments, we discovered a beautiful landscape.
cheer has you.

Superba compozitie, atmosfera usor cetoasa si lumina joasa. Foarte reusit.
