A perfectly composed image of this beautiful pine cone. The detail is unsurpassed and the color tones very natural. Super DOF achieved in this shot and the exposure is right on the money.
The weather here has been very mild here lately, but I haven't had much time to get out and about, been busy with Christmas music at church. Hope everything is fine with you guys out in Washington and wish you all a Happy Holiday Season.

It's so fine to see a posting from you. And many thanks for your good wishes. You accompany them with such a simple and beautiful picture, a delicate natural decoration. And I appreciate the fact that you didn't take it but just looked at it on its tree very much.

The composition with the needles radiating from the pine cone is perfect Bob.
I like to see the structure of this opened cone, here shown with fine sharpness. It sure is inviting to fill the spaces once occupied by pines seeds with goodies for the birds - great idea!
Next week I'm singing in the Advent consert with the choir so our Holiday Season is well under way. I wish you and Jane a happy time.
All the best,

Glad to see something new from you on the eve of Christmas Bob, evidently your composing eye was again at full tilt, capturing this majestically open cone in pleasant detail, which is also a tribute to the dispersal capabilities of pines.
Cheers and best regards...

Very funny idea to decorate satellite TV antennae!
Very fine and simple picture which you present with a pleasing horizontal composition and perfect sharpness. Cones of pines are always very attractive, I also have some in my archives..
I like your personal and original notes very much too.
Thanks and kind regards

The detail in this is just superb, excellent contrast in colours, one can almost smell the pine.
Just lacking a little snow and a Red Robin, but no doubt the snow will come :) not sure about the Robin, really nice mate.
Cheers Rick :)

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the cone and of the branch. The subject is well framed. The quality of the light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
