I love the peaceful winter mood in this photo. The tree branches covered in snow are so graceful, and so is the creek running through the scene. This shot would make a lovely painting!

Welcome back. I did not realize that you were away because of an accident. Anyway this is a superb winter shot. Who can resist hoar frost and the beauty it creates albeit temporarily. I like the interplay of the browns tones with the whites. Well done.

Oh, man, Larry,
I had missed you, but didn't realize you'd been in an accident. I'm so sorry to hear that and glad to see you back. Beautiful shot, too. The river is a wonderful lead in and I like the minimal colors. That frost makes everything look like a fairy tale. Marvelous shot! Many thanks and best wishes!

What an artistic image, full in poetic flavour and mysterious feel, fascinating winter view in low lighting and soft color, distinct image, thanks for sharing the impressive scenery.

nice to have you back on TE. Wonderful shot of this winter wonderland. I like your POV, the harmony of the colors, the reflections on the water and of course the beautiful hoarfrost that creates such a magical atmosphere. Congratulations.

My compliments for this wonderful winter picture.
Great perspective, depth and nice reflections.
I feel the cold here, well composed and very poetic winter scenery.
Very well done, TFS.

Larry, this is a fine one, the exposure for the snow and contrast free environment is handled perfectly. There is nothing wrong with the shot but by way of a suggestion you might try a circular polariser, it usually makes these kind of shots pop, assuming there is enough light to make using it worthwhile. Really fine color for this winterscape too.

Wow! Magical mood of the splendid winter scenery that is really very well captured with such frosty view. This must be very valuable shot and a fine TE post.

Hello Larry, so sorry to hear that you have been involved in an accident; but hope that you are well on the way to a full recovery.
I had missed you on TE although I haven't been posting as regularly as I have in the past.
This shot is really beautiful in my opinion, and deserves more recognition.The subtle colours are wonderful.
The square format works well for the composition.
The tiny piece of reflection completes the shot for me.
Best wishes Jean.

Perfect winter wonderland scenery. Wow, composition, technicality, you got it just right on this one, you've come a long way in such a short time. I like that everything is very gentle, not too strong contrast or saturation in colors, all is beautiful the way nature presented. My complements.

This is such a fairytale look of this winter scene. I like the way it is captured with the river and reflection of the molten snow.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

This is a beautiful image, showing the season at its best!
The contrasty tree trunks really stand out in the in the frost, all seen on the background of the pale winter sky...
An attractive composition, where the little stream makes the perfect lead-in!

I hate winter, and probably because of this ...
I am in Australia :-)
But I love watch it on photographs ...
Thanks for your picture and Photographer's Note
