It continues to rain, but this year the snow has not showed up in my part, and I think a winter landscape in the gallery it takes .... ehehe ... remembering last year, a view of the Navigli Grande after the snowfall last February ....
The Naviglio Grande was the first artificial canal in Europe and the most important of the Milan “navigli”. Probably originating as a ditch dug in 1157 between Abbiategrasso and Landriano as a defense against Barbarossa, it was one of the largest post-medieval engineering projects, allowing development of commerce, transport and agriculture.
RICORDANDO LA NEVE...
Continua a piovere,ma quest'anno la neve non si è fatta vedere dalle mie parti,e penso che un paesaggio invernale nella gallery ci vuole....ehehe...ricordando lo scorso anno,una vista sul Naviglio Grande dopo la nevicata dello scorso Febbraio....
Il Naviglio Grande, il più antico, fu costruito negli anni 1177 a 1257 e nasce dal Ticino. Con la sua lunghezza di 50 km serviva come sistema di trasporto fluviale dal Lago Maggiore e la Svizzera e fu essenziale per trasportare i marmi utilizzati per la costruzione del Duomo.
Ancora oggi i Navigli servono per irrigare i campi e sono indispensabili per lo sviluppo dell'agricoltura.

Hi Luciano, A very special winter scenery presented here. I like very much its grey tone and it enhances the cold mood in the area. The curve path along the lake gives great sense of depth to the composition. The lake water adds extra life to the snow which always dull to view. It is really a beautiful winter landscape with sound of music from the running water in the lake. Thank for sharing
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-01-04 14:55
I like this shot even if the light was not the best. Somehow you managed to achieve very interesting result with quite sparse colors - well done! I like the POV you chose as well as the harmonic composition.
carlo62 (39651) 2014-01-04 15:54
manca ancora un po' a febbraio, vedrai che nevicherà anche quest'anno, non disperare.
Ottima la linea sinuosa che si inoltra in profondità, con i leggeri riflessi sull'acqua e quel cielo nevoso.
tyro (22396) 2014-01-04 17:27
Ciao caro Luciano,
No, we haven't had any snow here either - just rain, rain and more rain!
This is a delightful winter scene with beautiful fresh snow. Your composition is excellent, the curving canal leading the eye well into the distance. The distant view is almost monochrome yet the foreground shows some colour in the trees on the left.
Lovely light and contrasts, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
Have a Wonderful 2014!
jcpix (13820) 2014-01-04 18:58
A chilling Winter scene, the complete opposite of what I'm enjoying now with the sun and blue skies. :) We'll take some of that rain from you though, something we can always use. For as cold as it may be, it still conveys a beautiful display of nature in her simple glory. This appears to be an instance where a dull sky doesn't actually take away from the impact, in fact, it only serves it better. Hope you had wonderful holidays with family and friends. All the best in 2014!
mcmtanyel (17179) 2014-01-04 21:11
You've got lots of time till the end of winter. I remember having had snow storms as late as April, so relax, you'll get your chance.
As for this photo, the curvature in the canal gives it a pleasant sense of depth. The reflections on the water provide a horizontal symmetry and the subdued colors due to snow render a dreamy mood.
pajaran (55545) 2014-01-04 23:07
Lep pogled ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto sa snegom.
Dobar snimka i kontrast, lep refleks na vodi.
Lepa priroda sa snegom.
Imajte lep dan za odmor, sve najbolje.
Nice view ...
Good composition and perspective, nice place shown with snow.
Good length and contrast, nice reflection on the water.
Beautiful nature with snow.
Have a nice day to relax, all the best.
jjcordier (79275) 2014-01-04 23:25
Une image qui donne presque envie de retrouver un vrai temps hivernal avec neige à la place de pluie et vent.
emka (87444) 2014-01-04 23:27
Snow? What is it? :). The same is i n Warsaw, I haven't seen any snow this winter. But fortunately we had quite warm weather without rains and storms like are friends in England. marvelous view, you chose fantastic vantage point with a curve of the river. And fabulous reflections too.
Warm regrads Malgo
fabbs99 (16819) 2014-01-04 23:40
Lovely composition of snow and the river .Keep sharing.Sorry points for the day is over.TFS.
SnapRJW (31627) 2014-01-04 23:41
Happy New Year dear Luciano, I hope 2014 is a bumper year for you! Delicate colours and the flat light give this shot a quiet, silent look which is so typical of some days in winter. Here the isolation and loneliness that winter can bring is beautifully captured. Warm regards from sunny and hot Windhoek! Rosemary
jurek1951 (42196) 2014-01-04 23:49
A good simple image of winter with all this snow and the long perspective, excellent sharpness,
Silvio1953 (131638) 2014-01-05 0:24
Cia Luciano, gran bella, deliziosi riflessi, magnifica invernale, saluti da Frascati in una bufera di pioggia ciso Silvio
ikeharel (63833) 2014-01-05 0:44
Winter in full swing, Luciano, tradtionally you make at least one pic. like this in every year.
Used well the mild light to show how trees loaded with ice, and gave a fine reflection on water.
DOF along and fine clarity collected well, inspite the harsh conditions.
jmdias (59190) 2014-01-05 0:45
a marvelous winter mood in the image. I liked the texture of the snow in the trees and the soft curve in the canal, interesting details. TFS.
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2014-01-05 2:05
this frame is such an attraction which can deliver some delight and as well some sorrow in my mind in first sight. Perfectly composed with nice soft light. Excellent one. It made my Sunday mood!
grigand (19747) 2014-01-05 2:08
Bella immagine invernale, è caldino anche qui e piove a dirotto, per la neve hai dovuto cercarla nell'archivio dell'altranno ... spero migliori per domani ! Buona domenica
snunney (90688) 2014-01-05 2:37
I like very much this wintry composition with the gently curving canal that helps draw us ever inwards. Ideally exposed despite all the white tones and very evocative of a cold winter's day. Lovely light and reflections.
Nicou (131358) 2014-01-05 2:53
quel décor hivernal la belle neige qui recouvre la végétation et la rivière qui serpente au milieu sueprbe ensemble.
Bravo et amitié
timecapturer (49288) 2014-01-05 3:22
lovely sweeping and enticing lines in this beautiful snow scene. There is a grace and elegance emanating from this wonderfully executed shot. I cannot help wondering how the UK would look at present if the rain we had been deluged with recently had been snow, it would be about 3 meters thick!! Gulp!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-01-05 4:18
se ti lamenti te della mancanza di neve....io è meglio che non parlo.
Questa mattina: caldo, acqua e vento da tropici e strade allagate.
Quasi, quasi ripropongo anch'io un po' di Roma con la neve.
Ciao e buona domenica
jhm (145134) 2014-01-05 5:01
This is real a dream picture, nice winter image.
You chose a very well angle.
Wonderful through the curve and reflection in water.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Excellent panorama view about these area.
Composition and presentation are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
jacquest (18871) 2014-01-05 5:04
Sorry you don't have snow yet. I can ship free boat loads your way if you pay the transportation. Here, this is a wondeful winter scene with good deepness created by the ondulating river betwee those frosted trees. The reflections on the water add to the composition.
Sergiom (68602) 2014-01-05 6:11
On imagine difficilement Milan sous la neige. Mais c'est très beau. Le canal qui sinue entre les arbres recouverts de neige donne de la profondeur à la composition. J'aime l'impression de noir et blanc.
holmertz (45923) 2014-01-05 6:58
A very elegant curve and fine contrasts of white and light green. Snow is nice to watch, less nice when you have to walk through it in a city, but in January I would still prefer some snow to just rain and winds.
Noel_Byrne (27742) 2014-01-05 7:42
It seems to be a warm and stormy winter in Europe this year, we have seen no snow in Ireland either. It doesn't matter though, its nice to be able to view your beautiful winter capture. The river leads into the scene in a wonderful way, and there is a frost in the air which makes this picture very biting. Beautiful shot,
all the best
aleXundar (1256) 2014-01-05 8:48
A wonderful snow-scape with unique tonal effect. Great composition with curved snow-covered path and the trees on the other side of the waterbody. Marvelous atmosphere created in this beautiful shot.
Fis2 (90775) 2014-01-05 9:26
Lack of snow this year :(
Interesting POV and composition.
I like reflection.
SimoAle (646) 2014-01-05 9:49
Ciao Luciano credo che dalle tue parti un inverno senza neve sia come un Natale senza albero. .. questa composizione mi trasmette tanta tranquillità. Bella silhouette del fiume e dello specchio dell' acqua. Una bell angolatura.
npecanhuk (70782) 2014-01-05 12:13
A very beautiful and pleasant-looking winter picture!
Snow might mean a tough winter sometimes, but it surely makes places different and attractive in a unique way!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
adramad (41118) 2014-01-05 15:11
Great perspective that gives the channel, this beautiful composition with the trees covered in snow, winter is a real postcard, very nice reflections on the water surface, the light mist that envelops the background makes the picture more suggestive.
The image is very bright and has a good sharpness.
I wish you a good weekend.
Best Regards ..
Mics (885) 2014-01-05 20:25
What a chilly winter shot...bbrr!:-) I like the curve of the canal from the vantage point where you took the photo giving a sense of how long the canal is. I like your light management as well in what I suppose a difficult lighting condition. Well done!:-)
Subhogen (4067) 2014-01-06 1:54
Fantastic winter shot almost in monochrome. The absence of colors work well here to convey the cold atmosphere. Well chosen POV to use the curvature of the embankment to create depth. Thanks for sharing.
I hope your wait for snow ends soon :-)
eldancer1 (32756) 2014-01-06 7:38
Beautiful winter scene but the people of the Midwest and Northeast of the U.S. don't have to remember snow, they are under it now! Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
macjake (62280) 2014-01-06 9:27
yes, i keep hearing from people on TE from Europe that they're getting lots of rain.
I think you posted a similar style photo last year?
anyways, this is one of those shots where it proves that a white sky in a photo can be just as good as a blue one with clouds.
i feel cold looking at this one already.
love the frozen branches the most.
Gigidusud (18243) 2014-01-06 13:01
L'hiver n'est pas finis! Chez nous aussi on a de la pluie mais il fait très doux, +15.
Très joli paysage hivernal avec la courbe du canal qui donne un impact graphique à la photo.
mkamionka (32871) 2014-01-06 13:18
I was so surprised to see it at first thinking that Italy must have a really cold winter this year :)
So far there was not much snow in England either.
Abundance of snow of course creates great opportunities like this one here which you have perfectly used. The river provided a nice motif and the reflections.
Very well seen and captured.
Corry (4508) 2014-01-06 20:53
Belle prise de vue de ce canal sinueux. Le mur recouvert de neige donne de la profondeur à l'image. Belle composition. Beau paysage hivernal. Salutations.
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-01-07 0:48
the same problem we have in Germany my friend.Today we expect 14C(in January,wow).It feels more like a Mediterranean,just without palm trees:)
But seriously your composition is magnificent!It shows winter from its most beautiful side with a lot of snow(the trees are really beautifully covered with it).
I think all we can to do is waiting.I´m sure it´ll come and then we will miss summer:)
Have a good day
trevormoffiet (3112) 2014-01-07 2:39
I have no desire to live in a cold climate but I love images like this with snow. This one is beautifully composed and balanced with the curving snow capped wall on the right and the canal leading our eye deep into the image where the river disappears.
danos (91070) 2014-01-07 4:01
fortunatelly here in Athens we have not a bit of snow just some rains,like your snowy postcard.Excellent and well chosen the POV as adds depth and perspective in the image.I like to see the beautiful snowy environment but ...not to live in it.Well done.
amaryllis (36085) 2014-01-07 8:29
une photo superbe couleur sur la gauche et noir et blanc ou comme tel à droite et ce canal sinueux avec les reflets
une composition de toute beauté
chrislo (4155) 2014-01-07 9:20
Une belle image hivernale avec le givre sur les arbres qui donne une beauté particulière à la nature. On dirait que les couleurs se sont envolées pour laisser place à la simplicité monochrome de la neige. J'aime la courbe du canal qui nous amène vers les profondeurs de l'image. Le froid n'ayant pas figé la surface de l'eau, de superbes reflets viennent agrémenter cette jolie composition.
marina7 (8055) 2014-01-07 11:20
so you too think of snow looking at the last year's pictures!:) It's very beautiful I must say. The lovely white branches and the curve of the river - all looks amazing. Our rivers are not totally frozen yet as well, the warmest January ever!
Thanks and best wishes!
nikkitta (17018) 2014-01-07 12:53
Here you present a very beautiful winter landscape, in soft tones that makes it so atractive, the curve of the water with the reflection provides a creative POV
Ciao et buona settimana
ourania (37324) 2014-01-08 8:26
elegantissima la tua composizione e la quasi monocromia che rende questa immagine invernale molto atmosferica e particolare. Mi piace tanto la curva elevata ed il modo dinamico in cui ci guida verso lo sfondo. Le tesstiture e le tonalita' sotilissime sono incantevoli. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,
boa (6675) 2014-01-08 12:19
it is the same in Stockholm as in many other places in Europe, no snow yet this winter! I think it will be colder and more snow later in Januar.
I am no big fan of snow and Winters but i must admit it is beautiful with a white landscape. Really nice picture by the way. The canal is curved in a attractive way and you have captured it from a good spot. The snow and ice have a strong impact on the overall impression, well done!
Have a nice evening/
josepmarin (58031) 2014-01-10 4:44
preciosa estampa invernal en tu foto, la atmósfera fría y el paisaje nevado crean una agradable sensación de calma, a pesar del frío.
Me gustan esas curvas del canal, con su trazado sinuoso a través de este bello lugar, y los tonos verdes tan suaves que aplican un poco de color a esta blanca imagen.
Los reflejos sobre el agua son un gran complemento estético en una buena composición.
Bello trabajo, amigo.
mvdisco (17784) 2014-01-10 9:21
Bonjour Luciano, Ciao,
Je vois que vous avez quelquefois de la neige dans votre beau coin de pays,
Ici, c'est très froid avec plus de 1 mêtre de neige !!
présentement c'est de la glace partout..avec un 2 jours de pluis avec toute cette neige..et un redoux est confirmé pour cette fin de semaine.
Enfin Bref..j'aime bien ta photo avec cette belle perpective de la rivière et cette neige collée aux arbres.. jolie composition ..
tous mes complimenti..
ciakgiak (30423) 2014-01-10 9:23
e 100!!! Ma ormai sei un abituè delle quote alte :)
La foto è meravigliosa sotto tutti gli aspetti, sia tecnici che paesaggistici!
Un caro saluto
SWEETFREEDOM (23856) 2014-01-11 0:11
splendido con tutta la neve intorno, non sono un fan del freddo e neve ma quest'anno per essere gennaio fa in effetti troppo caldo.
Kielia (24073) 2014-01-11 8:42
it is the grey of the colors that make the image very attractive. The pale colors of the winter make this image quite interesting but most of all I like how the light is creating these wonderful reflections. The composition is excellent. My compliments!
annjackman (21053) 2014-01-14 21:56
I can feel the cold looking at this! Almost monochromatic, it gives a wonderful impression of the snowy landscape. The curve of the river bank takes my eye through the picture.
Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann
adores (41618) 2014-01-17 3:16
It's a beautiful winter shot! I link the reflection on the canal and the white snow covering trees and ground. We can almost feel the cold!
aliabazari (16067) 2014-01-18 18:00
Hi Luciano Dear
View of a beautiful and fascinating winter. Exposure nicely done.
Thanks for sharing.
bona (13546) 2014-01-26 10:52
Pretty photo of this river. I like thereflections and the snow all-around. This river have hotwater, because it is not freezed.
