You have captured the moment of realization for winter and flowers already dried and waiting for the inevitable. A wonderful nature mood scene.

Hi Svetlana!

That's the way it goes... But let's not be sad! There will soon be a lot of flowers again, and winter has its beautiful sides, too.

A simple picture close to reality, no artistic or artificial aspect. I like it.

Kind regards


Hi Svetlana,
I can feel the cold and onset of winter from this picture.
The ice crystals on the withered sunflowers tell the story well.

Hi Svetlana.
Terrific picture and amazing subject. Great colour, DOF and details. You managed to reflect the frozen petals, leaves and water drops excellently. Bravo. I feel the cold. Super.

Hi Svetlana,
I like very much this picture.
It's a perfect contrast between one season and the incoming other one.
The dried flowers with the snow over it are so dramatic.
Very well seen!
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Svetlana

A very well composed shot with sharp focus and details.
The snow on the drooping sunflowers sends a message that summer is over.
The colours are well saturated.
Well done


Oh my.... snow on the sunflowers so I guess we can't argue with your title. I love a photo that tells a story. This is nice. You managed good sharpness and rich natural color.
