Birch tree

It was very cold last week in the Valaisan Mountains. The temperatures were often over minus 10° centigrade. But fortunately the sun was present to give a warmer feeling.
Most of the trees were covered with snow and frost. In this area there are a lot of birch trees (Betula). Covered with frost their appearance is very magical, especially in an all white surrounding.
Just an impression of the wintery atmosphere which we met in the mountains.

Ciao Anne, fascinating vinter view withsplendid frozen tree, wonderful composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hallo Anne!

Deine Birke ist wunderschön, der Winter und du, ihr beide formt ein Künstlerpaar! Ich mag die Farbgebung ganz besonders und die Komposition mit der Birke auf der rechten Seite wirkt sehr gut.

Das Bild überzeugt mich davon, dass du den Aufenthalt dort genossen hast...

As liebs Grüessli


Hi Anne ,
So nice view with great details and great sharpness.
It is lovely shot.

Kind regards

Ich liebe so eine Stimmung - wenn die Bäume in Frost gehüllt sind - und der Himmel blau ist. Hier sieht man sogar eine schwache Bergsilhuette im Hintergrund - einmalig schön. Vielen Dank, liebe Anne, so macht der Winter dann doch Spaß, auch wenn er mir einfach schon zu lange dauert ...
Liebe Grüße

Bonjour Anne,
We are tired of our winter here: the snow keeps falling and the temperatures are forever below zero! So we long for spring and some greenery, possibly because we have been spoit by mild winters in recent years.
So pictures of winter make one less positive.
However this one I appreciate because you have captured this birch tree when the fine network of branches looks like an inticate work of filigris with the powdering of frost: really beautiful!
Merci et bonne soirée,

Hallo Anne,
freue mich , dass du wieder da bist.
Ich stelle fest, dass der Frühling bei dir auch noch nicht da ist. Aber du stellst uns einen super Winterbild dar.

Hy Anne
I was imagining that trees with dark bark are really nice cevered by ice, but it seems that also birch, which has white trunch has the same amazing effect; And actually, the birch is one of the most beautiful trees in all the seasons.
Kind regards,
And there are mountains in the bg?

Iced brenches for an exciting graphic solution. Magnificent light here and very good sharp. Good POV's choise. Very well done dear Anne.

Hi Anne. I think you have you said the right thing by the tree looking magical. With the snow covered mountains in the BG. It all looks so nice but i am sure you will be glad when spring time come again. Well taken TFs.

Ciao Anna,
uno splendido paesaggio invernale con la betulla ricoperta di galaverna in una magnifica luce invernale, soffusa di bianchi e grigi bellissimi, mi piace molto anche il taglio compositivo, che esalta l'albero, ma dà il giusto spazio allo sfondo con la maestosa montagna innevata.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata
Con amicizia

bonjour Anne
c'est vrai que cet arbre tout blanc est magique, le point de vue et les details sont exceptionnels, le ciel bleu et les montagnes enneigées dans le fonds ajoutent à la beauté de l'image
Passe une bonne nuit
