YES ! Just in time for the holiday seasons. I am not sure how you celebrate this season in your country, but I am certain that you do celebrate it. What a beautiful photo, I really enjoyed your last series. And now I am going to get to enjoy beautiful winter photos from you. One person alone on skis on the snowy mountain is a very poetic image. Do you like skiing? I am not so good at it. So, I can admire all the more an image like this. As I mentioned it, I like the photo for its poetic nature as well as for being a well composed and presented image. Compliments!
With my very best regards,
Have great days ahead, Saber

It was quite some time since I visited your gallery and I notice that you seem to have returned to your favourite forest. Very nice winter mood and your inclusion of the skier is excellent. Also a very good compostion with the large tree trunks to the left and the diagonal lines starting from each bottom corners. TFS and have a nice day!

Hello Saber, Nice shot of the lone skier? Almost all BW except for a slight hint of colour, works very well, a lovely & very cold looking winter scene.

Very nice tonal values in this winter scene composition.The subject may be centered but the tree arrangements dictated the composition.
Just thinking of snow trekking like this make me shiver as I am not a cold weather person.
