I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Thank you for a lovely year. It looks like rain for the next few days so it least I got out on one frosty day.

Here are some of my frost shots on Trek Lens

Hi Karan,
This one is also very nice as your previous posting.I liked the color tones, POV, light and the composition a lot. TFS
Greetings and Merry Christmas :o)

Estilo muy parecido a la anterior, aunque aquella la encuentro mucho mejor. El tercio inferior de la toma no aporta mucho. De todas formas es una bonita imagen.
Abrazo Karan.

Hi Karan,
It looks like you had an other amazing trip through the country side. The light in each photo is just magnificent. (I'll have to visit your TL photos later this week)
Although this photo is not as sharp as expected, the composition and mood are wonderful. I really like the type of shoreline in this photo, and how you have used it to draw the eye to the soft spectacle in the sky.
I think you might have ended up with an almost frozen nose and very cold fingers. Did you end this great trip in a local pup?

Fabulosa gradación de tonos y colores Karan.
Estupenda nota.
Un saludo y mis felicitaciones para tí y los tuyos en estas fechas tan señaladas, JL.
