A very good capture with a camera without view finder and LCD. Very well compose. Thanks a lot for sharing.

You are right about the image of your camera! Image quality is great and the tress and perches are so sharply shown. Vrey good details of the landscape can be observed. You have also captured a very fine light. The delicat grey color tones you have been able to render makes the photo very special.
Thank you for sharing,

I agree... and the Leica lenses are phenomenal. I honestly believe, however, that many of those images we do not see are inspired by One who does... :)

Thats a remarkable result for a 'blind'shot.
I guess Beethoven composed music when he was deaf,so why not.
Avery sharp shot of this frozen wetland.
No skating here,unless you are a very very thin person.

This is strange, Bob, this looks like here except we still have snow, thick layer of snow! I like the twirling tree at left, the branches are swirling in such an amazing movement. I like the straight lines the trees make in the pond, giving the picture a texture. Plus, I really love your Leica without the LCD, I can feel how much fun you have with it and were it not from your experience in photographing with SRL for so long, it wouldn't give such a result. Thank you!
What a clear shot f a nice place. I am impressed with transparency of the image and clearness of the colours a lot as well as with superb DOF and exact details/sharpness of the entire scene. Perfect presentation of the of the season and its spirit. Well done. My kind regards.

i am happy to read your kind comment to my picture, thank you, Bob;
a great view of "The Cusp of Spring", i like the title "cusp" from the Latin language "cuspide" "point of a lance", very good sharpnesss and colours in a nice composition.

Great shot, especially since you couldn't see what you were aiming at!! Looks like you are finally getting some well deserved spring like weather!
I was out a little bit yesterday but didn't see anything to shoot, it's been pretty cold out lately and nothing seems to be moving about. We had our yearly Mission Conference all last week so I haven't had much time to even get on the site.

A typical "transition-picture"! Not spectacular, but interesting, especially if we look closer..fine colour-palette, and this special light which brings Spring. Well taken tree-curtain, not an easy subject. I also like a lot your horizontal framing.
I wish you a very nice weekend
