[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last weekend Rosie and I took a quick trip to North Bend State Park in West Virginia. It had snowed the day before and many of the trees were covered with a layer of snow. The drive down reminded us of a Winter Wonderland.

There is one fairly large lake in this mountainous region which was completely frozen over. Not knowing how thick the ice was, I decided to take this shot of one of the lakes many small bays from shore.

There are many feeder streams running into the lake from the surrounding hillsides, the ice appeared to be a little discolored, almost muddy looking

Hello Ron - Nicely captured the moment here. We came to know through news about heavy snowfall in NA. Soft natural light with splendid color on trees, as well as on snow show the beauty of unpredictable mother nature. Thanks for sharing your moment with us. Regards - Srikumar

Somehow reminds me H.D. Thoreau's Walden, Ron.
This winter landscape with the frozen lake looks so pristine, calm and peaceful.
Thanks for sharing this thought provoking image.

Interesting shot, Ron. The white areas are either snow that lies on the ice or the effect of the water freezing around the tree stumps, I guess - any thoughts?

Hello Ron! Nice winter landscape. A lot of snow. Fine brightness and natural colours. Good note. Regards!
