Well my friends,I do like these kind of winterlandscapes very much,but to be hounest,enough is enough,we are in March now and its time for some sunny change,and I dont think Im do only one thinking like that ;=]....
This is the wonderful very old country estate Hartenkamp in Bennebroek,not far from my hometown and Haarlem.
For years already groups of people with a mental handicap are based there,living in a very peaceful surrounding.
In the past I use to walk around there every sundaymorning,because my daughter was on a private swimming school there,many times I got lost there and I had to hurry back to the swimmingpool to help my little girl dressing after 1 hour of swimming was finished too fast for my feeling ;=]
I want spring,now!!!!!!

Hi Jan !
This is a good winter shot with nice soft light.
Good composition with the ballustrade on the left leading to the bidge and the nice and warm light at these "frozen trees".
YES I WANT SPRING NOW;TOO!!!!!!!

Me too !
Anyway a very good WINTER scenery here with all the pleasant elements, snow and a blue sky. Much better than permanent, day after day, rain and grayness all over the place
hang on, not much to wait !

freezing here in England again tonight, so I want spring too! But it does mean you can capture beautiful snow scenes like this one. The light is just glorious and the cold palpable in this exquisite winter scene. Stunning!
Regards - Brian.

Ik ga het bijna jammer vinden dat de winter bijna voorbij is, als ik zo'n schitterend beeld zie. Dit is echt sprookjesachtig mooi en sfeervol, prachtig met dat zonlicht op de besneeuwde bomen en met die reflectie. Het spel van licht en schaduw brengt rust in de foto. Een heerlijk winters beeld.

Enchanting is what I would say for this picture. You seem to have got the beautiful light too to enhance the appeal of this picture. Sharpness and clarity are very good and so is the composition. The near frozen pond adds to the beauty.

Lovely winter atmosphere along the canal. I like the sunny part of the image, the hope of spring.
Enjoy a fine afternoon.

Une très jolie scène hivernale avec une belle lumière et une bonne composition. On serait quand même contents de voir arriver le printemps!

Winter wonderland! It actually makes me miss winter, we only got 2 days of this kind of weather here in the UK this year.
I like the composition, it wouldn't be the same without the reflection.

Ik denk dat u niet alleen bent die de lente zo graag zou willen.
Vandaag opnieuw een strakke oosterwind met 3° Celsius, wat voor deze tijd van jaar een drama blijkt te zijn voor ieder nuchter mens.
Maar gelukkig is uw foto zeer mooi hoe koud het moge aanvoelen.
Mooie diepte foto met de brug in de achtergrond.
Excellent foto werk, bedankt.
macjake (55504) 2013-03-23 2:28
well, spring will soon be upon us for sure :)
If you can just wait it out a little bit longer it will arrive :)
I really enjoyed reading your note, its very peaceful and gives a nice backdrop story to the scene we are viewing.
and yes, we can certainly feel the cold air in your photo.
beautiful collection of whites, blues, and with the bridge and water.

It's nature wonder at its best that fits in a treat. Good compo, the colours are natural, superb contrast and very luminous which I really appreciate. The lush snow covered trees and the shiny calm water both collaborate each other very well and deserve equal attention there. Indeed a real cool and tranquil shot. Compliments to your fine effort.

Dag dear Jan
heheheh I really thought you'd use the title F*ing Freezing for this one :) Wow, it's chilling me to the bones, all the way over here in sunny Oz. The idea of swimming and this kind of weather just don't make any sense to me...you're all mad over there, but no wonder you get such brilliant swimmers like Hoogie! But to your photo, it's a a masterpiece of texture and light. It's so subtle, fragile and ethereal. This is an eternal beauty, but I really hope the cold weather is not eternal for you dear friend and that Summer comes soon.

Very sharp, clear shot. Great light and reflection too. Winter time perfectly captured here.

Beautiful light in this winter landscape. Love the reflection on the darker frame with details and blue sky at the top.

I'm a tropical born, I start sweating coming out of my mother. Cold was never really my thing, but with this landscape and pristine environment. I wish to be there, at least wrapped myself up like a dumpling and wark around for a couple of hours enjoying this beautiful winter wonderland and after that I like to be back to the warm place.
npecanhuk (64182) 2013-05-11 17:13
What a lovely and charming winter picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition with those reflections are all great!
TFS - congrats,

I hate the idea of another winter coming soon, the last one seemed endless to me here. But I can't help admiring your picture, it's extremely beautiful and fragile and the light is fantastic - warm and inviting. Excellent detailing and sharpness. Great work.
Thanks and best regards
