With winter weather forecast here for the next few days I thought a shot taken earlier this year might be appropriate....

Hello Leslie - I was just thinking this morning that autumn is past and we should soon be seeing winter shots from the northern hemisphere. It is uncomfortably hot here and your beautifully layered winter shot looks so inviting. The cool colours, so subtle and delicate lit with the soft winter sun are glorious. The mist lying in the valley and the stark leafless trees perfect. Oh I do miss English winters! I'm sure you will say I am mad but relentless heat is no picnic either. Hope you have plenty of wood piled up for a log fire. Have a great weekend. Rosemary

I like these successive layers covered by snow and the intricated hills
Mild light over the scenery for moody blueish image, completed By silhouetted naked trees at the FG

Hello Leslie ,
I don't like snow , and i don't hope to see it in my region . But I must admit that this weather provides splendid subjects for the photographer . Like this beautiful snowy landscape , with the slight mist in the valley in the BG .

Merveilleux paysage d'hiver parfaitement composé. Les lignes que divisent les champs sont superbes et la lumière basse donne de beaux effets avec une belle atmosphère brumeuse. Une photo bien présentée avec un bel avant-plan en semie-silhouette.
Toutes mes félicitations et bonne fin de semaine,

Such a fantastic winter scene! Autumn seems to have come and gone so quickly, I barely captured any of it and sure enough its time for the winter shots to start surfacing...Your point of view and framing is spot on here, great composition, depth, sharpness and the lighting is really superb. Great work, thanks for sharing.

Fabulous view Leslie, lov this succession of hills and the snow all over it, this fable side light and the slight mist still covering the bg ones.
Guenther (10909) 2011-12-09 7:58
a great winter composition! I like the filigree trees against the white fields, the graphism of the borders, the mist in the distance... a fine shot!
Have a nice evening

rbassin (13357) 2011-12-09 9:01
Ce paysage est splendide; j'aime beaucoup la lumière et la brume sur le terrain valonné.
chawax (16525) 2011-12-09 10:27
You caught a nice atmosphere on this shot ! I love the many plans that give depth to the picture. The fog adds some nice atmosphere.
cebe (1295) 2011-12-09 10:46
Nice wintry landscape Leslie. I like the mist, the soft light, the gentle curves. A pleasing detail of the composition for me: the tree down slope at left that sort of balances the main one in the foreground. I must say that I'm not looking forward for the hard core of winter; it can be quite wild here.
ManuMay (33975) 2011-12-09 11:07
Wonderful mood!! Superb atmosphere here...a wonderful land inperfect compositon, amazing light play and very good those misty fields in the morning...Great capture!!!
macondo (18461) 2011-12-09 13:26
What a wonderful shot. You got a perfect exposure of this incredible winter scene, from an elevated vantage point that allowed you to look down on the mist in the valley. I like the pale light and the subtle shadows it casts, and the arrangement of the lines made by the fences in the fields. The arrangement of the trees in the foreground is excellent, with the largest in the corner balancing out the picture nicely.
siudzi (27769) 2011-12-09 14:20
Wow! What a beautiful landscape post created during an unique moment! The view with so many layers, details, tones is absolutely eye-catching. Bravo!!!

Wonderful landscape, very well done light and wb management, beautiful composition. Congrats Leslie.
annjackman (15541) 2011-12-09 23:43
Superb! The quality of the light is amazing and works so well on the rolling landscape. The hedges add a lovely pattern and the bare trees are super. You chose a very good crop. What a beautiful part of the UK.
Kind Regards, Ann

This is spectacular. I'm glad it was you taking this shot, braving the cold instead of me. But really the photo is so lovely. The combination of mist and frost, along with the undulating hills is so pretty. Congratulations, this photo is so skillfully executed with such a superb result.
Have a good weekend

Happy we get no early snow these winter, high temperatures for the time of year.
Splendid panoramic image with the hillside in background.
Wonderful taken, lovely picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Good Morning Les,
This scene almost mimics what is happening outside my window at the moment, except here, the snow is still swirling!
This is utterly beautiful. The snow covering is thin enough to let the details of walls, shrubs and trees show through, giving the effect of a pencil drawing. The distant slope of the hill gives a great thirds dividing line. Fine composition.
Have a good w/e,
brianmcc (5788) 2011-12-10 2:22
your viewpoint is superb and displays the hills and fields in their best early morning light. the morning mist hovering over the valley adds to the atmosphere. excellent composition.
CLODO (26462) 2011-12-10 3:27
A unique view of the hilly landscape under the first snow, with a misty atmosphere, so romantic.
gmg (4202) 2011-12-10 4:41
Gorgeous landscape, very well done!
saxo042 (33930) 2011-12-10 8:10
A beautifully composed picture where all the lines from the drystone walls form a pattern across the landscape. The mist creates very pleasant colours too!
wolf38 (29116) 2011-12-12 1:39

patdeph (35744) 2011-12-15 2:16
wooow, splendid landscape where I love the softness of the colors,due to the slight mist and the wonderful morning light,and where I love the graphism of the fields.I also love the contrast given by the dark silhouettes of trees of the foreground.Splendid!
ines8 (5986) 2011-12-15 11:33
Spendid and perfect picture, i love it!
abmdsudi (32509) 2011-12-19 3:45
Another great shot of this photogenic location, an immense shot Les. The rising mist is the distant is lovely and adds to the tranquility of this wonderful scene, The contrast works fine, the dark foreground and not entirely silhouetted trees are perfect to my eye, spot on. Beautiful light and colours, layering on the slopes is so mesmerising, reminiscent of the layers of stained-glass. A pleasure to view, brilliant capture. Congrats

Again, this is one of the most gorgeous and breathtaking winter scape I've ever seen.
The POV is amazing, love those vast lands covered in white and mist, the cascading lines, the silhouette of the trees and the hues of winter colors is simply beautiful! Great capture! Well framed and composed! TFS! a truly inspiring photograph!

Good composition with these bushes and trees in the foreground and the many lines and curves in the background.Great depth and I like the foggy atmosphere and morning? light.
romanaa (7644) 2012-02-11 5:27
this is so beautiful with all those lines and mist laying in the valley. Perfect capture in soft tones.
CanmoreKevin (2111) 2012-06-10 16:49
I like the depth and all of the layers. Very well composed and with a limited colour pallet.
kiks (11601) 2013-04-13 11:17
I have enough of the cold winterdays but this view shows well the beauty of winter landschapes. I love the way the light falls into the hills creating a very 'soft' feeling.
