The Temple of the lovers on Swan Island. I photographed this temple many times. Today snowed all day long. On my walk I photographed the temple once more.
Maybe it gets boring with time to photograph always the same object. But in fact, the temple looks depending on the season, weather, time of day, light, etc. always very different.
So now here is the photo.
Workshop in b & w

tu as raison, on ne se lasse pas de voir des photos selon les saisons, avec une lumière différente et là, ce temple en arrière plan avec une bonne épaisseur de neige, d'où on perçoit la tombée des flocons, un cadrage excellent et d'acoir laissé ce virage à droite, l'ensemble est une excellente réalisation

You like this place and I can understand why
Nice winter light and colors, snow on the trees, the usual belvedere, the icy pond and the duck which makes the FG all by himself
Bravo, a very good one

It is remarkable that sometimes a simple duck can have almost the same value as a distinguished temple. In this photo they co-operate to provide a good balance to the composition. Between them the unfrozen part of the pond makes a nice curve. It is also almost comical to compare this upload with the workshop. Certainly there is a difference, but at this time of the year even the colour version only features a minimum of colours.

Hello Wolfgang, very good pov chosen to take this nice view of the temple, with the heavy snow fall and intense cold freezing river. A lovely image very well captured in this excellent picture with very good sharpness, color and light. An excellent and lovely job very well done, with great quality. Congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this pretty picture.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

une très belle photo, bien cadrée, bien composée.
J'aime beaucoup ces teintes hivernales qui entoure le temple et la courbe dessinée par l'eau et la glace.

Even if this is described as a "color" picture, the colours are indeed very few. Still, I think this version is more attractive than the pure B&W.
This is a beautiful winter landscape and the well known little temple is well placed behind the curved line of the open water. The ducks add some life to this very cold and otherwise empty scene.
It is very interesting to see this place in various conditions and seasons.

Superbe image couleur qui ressemble à du noir blanc.
Bonne utilisation de la courbe de la rive.

There couldn't be a better opportunity to post this photo on today's international hugs day. I guess that with that cold weather, the lovers stayed in bed instead of smooching under the temple. Anyway, it's a very appealing winter landscape and a good balanced composition, so restful, yet conveying a melancholic atmosphere because of the greyish tones and the lack of any human presence, except these poor ducks. Fine work.

I like the colour version Wolfgang - it has a wonderful subtlety of colour which conveys the winter weather and feel very well. Very beautiful composition with a simple unfussiness which I really like. Warm regards Rosemary

Youçe chosen the optimal POV for illustrating this lovely winter scene. Good composition and well presented.
Have a fine day.

Wolfgang! Bellissima immagine! Il contrasto tra il ghiaccio dell'ambientazione e il calore del tempio degli innamorati rende questo scatto molto interessante!
brianmcc (6005) 2013-01-22 12:22
this is a lovely winter scene looking across the frozen pond towards the temple. the coldness of the scene is evident, and emphasised by the falling snow quite visible. the curve of the pond leading towards the temple is excellent.
have a lovely evening,

man kann gar nicht genug von diesem bezaubernden Tempel bekommen! Hier präsentierst Du ihn in einem wunderbaren Winterkleid, die Farben sind dabei sehr interessant. Auch wenn Du eine Schwarweiß-Version anbietest, das Original ist tausendmal schöner!
adores (34368) 2013-01-27 15:39
You have a very good series of this temple and this one is particularly beautiful! The high pov, the snow flakes falling, the ducks in foreground, the temple so well placed and even the textures of the snow. Everything seems so well thought here! A very good winter shot!
And don't worry about the subject being the same - the photos are really good:)!

and black with the little birds
in the foreground,the painter
photographer did his best

Lovely, peaceful photo of the freezing pond against the rich white of the snow in a beautiful curve leading to the temple. The three ducks in the FG highlight (to me) the solitude of the location.
mkamionka (29215) 2013-01-31 8:54
beautiful composition. I like very much the water in foreground making such a pleasant diagonal. The snow is abundant making a wonderful wintry decoration here.
We can even see the snow falling against the dark background of the water!
The structure resembles indeed the Taj Mahal.

Wonderful winter picture with an excellent composition and good clarity. I like the b+w impression of the color picture very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
kato (11630) 2013-03-22 8:55
You're capturing well this winter landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the nature with the iced/curved river, snow ground, witer trees and the temple with unique shape in the distance. It's good contrast and tasteful for winter color of white, grey and blue. And, some ducks on the river draw out a good effect in this image as well as the reflection projected to the river and snow which is falling.

was für eine schöne Nachricht, daß der Bergpark jetzt zum Unesco-Weltkulturerbe erklärt worden ist! Du hast diesem Park immer wieder mit sehr guten Fotos hier Aufmerksamkeit verschafft, vielleicht hat das ein wenig mitgeholfen.
