...."Winter Scene - II"....
Taken North of our home. My goal was to capture the painted effect of the snow right down to the waters edge on both sides of the creek. The frost - reflections - fog and slowing rising sun were a bonus.
Thanks, so much, to everyone for looking in and special thanks to all who leave thoughts, ideas and comments. -Larry

Very well done Larry. I can almost feel the chill while looking at your photo. I like your composition and the really good details you got in this shot. The reflection on the water right up to the icy edges is a good capture.

Hello Larry, I am enjoying this series of winter pictures;they would make excellent cards for Christmas[?]
A good PoV with the stream leading our eyes through the shot.The trees covered in snow/frost give the scene a dreamy feel.
I wish I could have been there to take some shots of this beautiful area.
Tfs, regards Jean.

very impressive Winter scene with the water of the creek to be semi frozen.The leafless trees are nice snowy strokes of the scene.Really the reflections on the surface of the water are a bonus in the scene.Well done.

Great winter scene with nice colours and great sharpness. All seems to be silent in the winter. Well done.

A superb athmospher of winter... Brrr...
I like too the harmony of colours "white/blue". Beautiful reflections in the water too and great prospect. A very pleasant view.

wonderful winter atmosphere with the snowy and frosted river shores. I like especially the foggy and icy mood. The rejection of this uncomfortable landscape is at the same moment the beauty of this picture. Very well done.

The stream banks provide good lead in lines & diminishing linear perspective in this marvelous winterscape. Good sharpness & diffused light. Tfs!

cette dominante un peu bleutée rend bien l'ambiance froide de l'hiver dans cette photo intime de cette petite rivière.Une très bonne gestion de lumières assez difficiles à maitriser.
All the best.

Good lighting and exposure to show the dim environment, lively winter view with including reflection on the half frozen river and mysterious feel with the blur background, thanks for sharing a simply natural view at winter.

Another dreamy shot of the winter scene. I like the flow of the water and reflection making it look like some fairy tale movies.
TFS and best regards,

This looks to be very interesting misty air of the deep winter land with such frosty branches but the scene makes a good picture! Nice work though it must be cold out there.
gildasjan (43824) 2009-04-08 7:10
Avec cette dominante bleutée,le froid est bien transmis,j'imagine qu'il devait faire très froid!

Another really beautiful winter scene, very moody with the blue tone, it's a little bit on the low contrasting side, but that may just be the real condition, cause it look darn cold, so I won't pick on that. I'm just glade your out there taking this image and not me :) Stay warm at least now it's spring, Happy Easter.

A superb winter composition... Wonderful POV, sharpness and beautiful atmosphere.

Blue hour light gives even chillier feeling. Frost always looks nice both on trees and hay. This is a good viewpoint showing the curve of the stream.
Dyerco (10185) 2009-04-09 3:52
Wonderful blue tones to this early morning shot. Catching hoar frost in the trees always provides such a wonderful winter mood.
pablominto (53746) 2009-04-09 5:39
This looks like freezing cold but not so much snow since this is early December!
A well composed presentation of the winter mood, with the bending stream as a main element...
The blue tones are typical for this time of day and year, well framed with a good feeling of depth!

A scene that remind me of a typical winter day in Minnesota where I spent my four years of college life. I miss the beauty of winter but not the cold short days. The frost looks nice here and so the snow dusted ground and partially frozen stream. Regards. Latiff.

A simple but pretty effective composition!
Sharpness is pretty adequate to the image! The exposure was perfect for this kind of picture! A truly beautiful winter picture... brrrrr I can even feel how cold it was!!! Good I love it - the wintertime!
TFS - Congratulations!

As a painting. Excellent capture in which you have caught the winter atmosphere in this landscape, and in that almost we can feel the cold.
The bluish tones and the tenuous luminosity give a fantastic appearance to the image.
