This picture was taken during one of our cross country ski trips. It was sunset, and we were about to leave when I turned back and took this last shot.

A very well managed capture!
The blue tones are very appropriate for the season, and creates a wonderful atmosphere...
The spot of reddish from the sunset is a great colour contrast... Lovely reflections and a nicely composed image!
Welcome to TrekEarth... Keep posting and have fun!

The cold blue & Warm orange colors compensate each other well to create a harmonic mode. Just beautiful! Welcome to TE. Looking forward to seeing more of your photos. I am also new in TE.

Wellcome on TE, a very nace place for learn and exchange. Yous first shot is very beautiful. It has a great depth and perspective, the reflections on water are beautiful, and the sharp is excellent. It's really is a cold shot, it's amazing the effect of snow over the trees! Excellent!

Hello Blanka -
Welcome to TrekEarth. This is a very nice image. It really portrays the coldness of the day. I really like the reflections. Image is a tad soft but it does not distract.
Thanks for sharing and again welcome.

j'aime cette photo de ce paysage prise en miroir .Ce qui me plait ,le plus, est le contraste entre la couleur dominante bleue et le couleur orange du soleil .
Le bleu symbolise le froid et l'orange symbolise le chaud .

Hi Blanka. You have captured very well the special quality of the last dying rays of the sun. The blueness emphasises the cold which soon to settle over the lake as the suns warmth diminishes. Well composed too.

Perfect capture of the ending day; the blue gives a sense of the cold temperature and the sparse ending daylight seems almost candle-like.

Very serene and peaceful composition. Looks chilly, you have captured the light well and some of the essence of winter.

This is a beautiful photo. Excellent composition. I like how the snow covered trees line both sides of the photo with the last bit of light from the day showing where the trees come together. The way that you have caught the reflexion in the water is fabulous as well.
Very nicely done,

Pretty shot Blanka. Good thing you turned back! Normally I'd say there's too much blue, but in this case the blue hue gives it a colder feel and accentuates the beauty of the sunset. Nice job.

Remarkable shot. Frosty colors are very good. It has surprisingly beautifully turned out to transfer at you an atmosphere of a winter landscape.
