Remember this shot? Yes, this is my favourite linden alley in Lodz's Botanical Garden. Lovely in every time of year. Full of sun and bright greens in Spring, noisy from bees' buzzing at summer time, lazy of amber light in Autumn. Today shot of this place at hard winter. Day like this isn't very common - fresh snow, frost on trees and sun. I was returning home from Zdrowie Park, but I couldn't miss opportunity to take photo of my favourite alley ;-) Judge which season you prefer.

Today is something like weather disaster in Lodz. Snow fall from early morning - everything is under big layer [about 50 cm] of it. Public transport is almost dead, roads impassable, people angry. But there is one good thing about this kind of weather - everything looks beautifull ;-)

Indeed its a beautiful alley. Wonder if this alley will be as serene as this in the spring.

Hi Greg,
too much snow and it looks to cold. ;-)
Well composed, very good light and colours.
Good POV and details.
Great work, my friend.

bardzo ladnie uchwycone swiatło na tej zacienionej zimowej alejce :)

He Greg, this is an excellent winter picture. Great zoom! Great sharpness, lighting and colours. This is a great composition. Thanks for sharing. (Greg, I´ve heard the weather disaster is in scandinavia too. I hope you have no problems with this bad weather.)

Looks like a very beautiful place Greg!
I love that canopy over the road created by the branches. Like passing through a magical tunnel...
It might be nice for you to do the four seasons at this spot for us...;-)

Beautiful landscape, I like the choce of portrait format for this alley, the differences in contrast and colour/light create a very nice 3D effect in this icy tunnel. Wonderful image, atraight to my favourites.

Just marvelous, Greg,
I love this snow-tunnel very much, thanks

Hi Greg,
Excellent capture of this beautiful landscap with nice perspective,
it looks cold over there, we have the summer heat here, today 36DC.
Thanks for sharing!

Amazing place Greg, I remembered well the first one that you posted and thought it was lovely, but I think to look at, I choose this one; and to walk through,
the other. (warmer) ;-)

I especially love the light filtering through the trees and falling on the pathway through those wonderful snow filled boughs.

Superb composition, details, color, weather...

Thank you for sharing it with us!

Yes Greg, I do remember that shot - way back in time! You can't go dating sitting on these seats now, could you?
What a LOT of snow. How are you finding it right now? I think of you and Joanna when the cold weather in Europe is mentioned...

Witaj Grzegorzu,
Droga do serca zimy, tez bym uzył podobnego tytułu. Brrr, zimno sie robi, tak sugestywny jest kadr. Pięknie pokazane zamglenie i szadź. Super wyglądają zwisające gałązki drzew tworzących zwarty tunel. Świetne zdjęcie, piękna jakość.

NIe moge sioe doczekac wiosny żeby pojsc na spacer ta alejką... teraz jak na nią patrze jest mi zimno :-)

Greag, I checked Light's Combing again.

This one is also very nice.

I like mood, composition and pov.

A very suggestive image.

I remember. And this is awesome. Lovely leading line with some warmer light in the back. Wish I was there... :) Great shot Greg. Frame this and hang it on a wall.

Perfect framing, superb lighting and overall great shot.
I like it a lot.

I´m looking to this picure from the hot brazilian summer and I cant´t believe that we are in the same planet. Nice composition! Good POV, sharpness and special lights! Congratulations!
