That was the most incredible experience in my life - a flight with my friend on a small plane over Chicago outskirts! The end of winter is not the best time for viewing the suburbs, the landscape is dull black-&-white, but this meandering creek seems to be very scenic from the sky.

très impressionnant ce POV. La prise depuis l'avion est excellente. J'aime bien la rivière qui serpente au milieu de la neige. bravo

well possibly not that dull after all because with the lying snow the contrast between elements is better revealed, which is to me the strength of this aerial view.
Have a nice evening JY

This is truly an amazing shot, with very high impact in the large B&W format. The meandering stream and patches of snow really make the scene sing and there is no blurriness or fuzziness. The farm buildings in the upper right nicely balance the frame. Congrats on this one - its a keeper.

Beautiful shot ! I like the S-shape of the little river and the depth of field in this picture.

Bonjour, mon amie Katia,
Une vue aérienne très intéressante qui transforme le paysage d'une bien jolie façon.
Je tiens à vous féliciter pour cette réalisation très originale et très bien réalisée.
ninaL (21348) 2007-03-27 4:08
Very interesting composition.
I would crop the top a little to mask the road...but is a detail.
Best wishes. Grazyna.
ALIRIZA (16423) 2007-03-27 5:32
An interesting POV. Very nice composition with "S" shape of the little river. Well done my friend...
snunney (107401) 2007-03-27 9:32
A very nice aerial shot made by the winding river. Good tones and clarity. Well captured.
somkiat (1104) 2007-03-27 13:27
unusual for my seeing also.good capture that include the interesting detail of this outskirt.
look like monotone color but it's not.
very nicely done
isabib (1953) 2007-03-27 17:04
Nice winter scene here. The different lines are amazing and well captured. TFS!
flory (4848) 2007-03-28 3:03
suppose it was an interesting experience,good impact b&w..looks,indeed,like a snake,that river(Anes),good details,also..
Mikos (4326) 2007-03-28 8:56
Such a great sharpness for this image! I like the pov you have chosen, and the preminence of the white shades, is contrasted with the darker elements, like the water or the trees!
Thanks for your words about my last picture!
stego (24132) 2007-03-28 21:39
That incredible experience of yours gave you the oportunity of producing this awesome winter compo, very rich graphically, with all those lines. I like particularly hat swirling river.
vinicio (23423) 2007-03-29 2:59
Beautiful bird-view Katia, a little too much rotated on the right side but the snake-river and the farm are the right subjects for this lovely view from the airplane, good idea, compliments.
Have a nice day
Budapestman (82620) 2007-03-29 10:31
This is a very spectacular and impressive photo. I like the fascinating atmosphere and the splendid details. Particular POV and fine tints. Very good shot. Thank you, nice days
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2007-03-29 15:05
Lovely capture from the air. Nice curved stream and interesting snow-covered surrounding.
kiwi_explorer (12209) 2007-03-29 20:39
I agree with you ... the winding creek is a welcome contrast to a dull winter scenery. Interesting composition ... well done. tfs
clnaef (6289) 2007-03-30 3:37
Intéressant angle de vue et belle texture.
faubry (35447) 2007-03-31 4:34
bonjour Katia, very graphic with curve river.. good choice Bw,amazing photo
Cretense (68703) 2007-03-31 4:45
Excellent picture, great POV and great sharpness for an air-photo! Beautiful details all over! Especially the creek is marvellous. Congratulations!
batalay (40521) 2007-03-31 16:36
Like an abstract painting, perhaps Polak, the stream meanders, and the image reveals a virtually monochromatic B&W image. It is imaginative and origial. You were flying at at a low altitude. In dramatic contrast to this image, take a look at Austrian Alps. Please, don't worry about critiquing it. We really don't see too many arial images.
bostankorkulugu (42486) 2007-04-01 3:07
what a great pov katia, and the landscape below you looks fab... i also like the almost B&W feel of it... cheers
Yar (793) 2007-04-02 15:33
ага, классный вид!
качественное, четкое фото :)
atus (15856) 2007-04-03 9:32
the landscape from your high pov is really great, even if covered by the snow. The meandering creek, of course, makes the shot. Well done! Tfs and best regards.
bakes888 (18499) 2007-04-04 4:21
Hi Katia. Aerial photographs always have a little surreal feel to me and the snow has given this shot an even more surreal feel. Well captured and presented. Thanks for sharing.
s_a_s_h_a (607) 2007-04-05 5:18
It's a beautiful winter composition, nice point of view, fascinating atmosphere and the splendid details.
What do you think about this BW conversion from your shot?
Marcelo_Almeida (1044) 2007-04-24 8:39
A paisagem monocromática com os detlhes do verde das árvores ficou ótimo. Muito bem capturada. Well done.
UnTrained (0) 2007-05-14 6:24
just a new winter perspective. Good idea nad well done. The curved creek is an excellent thing and you made it in a wonderful composition and good light.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
riclopes (35577) 2007-06-05 2:12
Incredible monochromatic scenery, Katia. The view is splendid and the resulted image is dramatic and graphical. Love the winding river and all the contrasts with the white snow. Greay shot!
RADEEH (2802) 2007-06-05 21:39
Oh! You were flying very low. This is a nice capture of this creek and its surroundings.Great shot TFS
balatrek (7455) 2007-06-10 15:42
This high point of view has created an interesting perspective, the image does not have showy colours, but those that it has create a good combination of contrasts, I like the form that creates the river, an image different and an interesting form to show this place.
AiresSantos (56155) 2007-06-17 12:54
Lovely place with snow !
I like your POV with the river contrasting with ramaining landscape. Excellent details, depth of fiel and light very well managed
TFS and greetings
baba_flies (8829) 2007-07-09 11:13
This is so funny, Katia! I always wanted to come back to this one but as so many photos come up, sometimes you just forget what you wanted to do :) So you reminded me and I am happy for you that you had the chance to have this experience. I love the river making its way through the land but also the old farm house down there is so much American country life. Well seen and brought into your camera.
Have a great night, Barbara.
hatti52 (12786) 2007-07-13 13:15
Very nice composition with river like a snake.
kiks (12759) 2007-07-14 10:39
The lines of the creek make this image indeed very interesting.
vincz (19113) 2007-07-17 0:36
What a POV, what a view! beautiful shot, very graphical, almost like an ink painting. Excellent!
oochappan (15638) 2007-07-19 15:31
Most remarkable Katia, still a color photo, almost B&W due to the white snow and all the texturing contrasting elements like road,trees, winding river and the house, a fine view from above, sharply captured.
alainh (33205) 2007-07-30 7:23
good format and i like how you compose your picture.
have a nice day Katia
knowdebu (964) 2008-01-20 0:18
Splendid composition,the meandering stream looks like a python lying on the snow.Great view.
walkmania (315) 2008-10-06 21:13
Wonderful POV and capture of this frozen moment!The sunlight adds more dimensions to the sight.Congratulations!
