Thanks for sharing this. The absense of sunlight makes the snow look really COLD! I am also amazed at how tiny twigs can hold so much snow.

Cross country skiing..Your image on profile matches that...you must certainly have become a romantic by now....and attracted all the fine ...well you know...sort of like NASCAR drivers...or Tour de' France...ah well..
Patterns...I love patterns. I see them all the time in wanter more than likely because they show up better...but in summer they do not disappear...not sure of the cause...but one mans patterns...etc... and still it makes a good image of your thought process...very nice Richard..
ooops..Heavy Bob I mean..Rick game me the moniker

Some of the best pictures are the unexpected ones... great abstract capture. Great tones in the snow.

Very beautiful capture, the black branches and the darker
white makes a a wonderful combination.. Well done

Nature has a lot offer when it comes to patterns and design. This is a great example that reminds me of a Mondrian painting. I'm glad that you chose to keep to colour: B&W would have made it too stark.
BTW as we have no snow cross-country skiing is out of the question in S.Sweden.

that is a lot of snow on those branches and I love the pattern and B&W effect you have here.
Well seen and caught.

Brrrrr. I don't get to scenes like this in Arizona. A very creative shot and the patterns are quite beautiful.

This is a lovely graphic shot with a lovely composition.
it has lovely flow with the repetitive arched snow-covered branches.
well focused with sharp details.
The lighting is well used.
Excellent DOF and POV.
Nicely framed and presented.

This is also a typical scenery here this year. We do had a lot of snow so far, a real winter! I like this abstract snowy representation. Details and exposure are very good. Have a great New Year!

This is new, this is original, this is abstract...this is TERRIFIC!
I really like the monochrome look of this shot with the thick layers of snow on each thin dark branch.
I also love the fact that the branches aren't straight - they are curved - giving such a splendid geometry to the entire scene.
Also, the DOF is excellent here, keeping the ones in front in exceptional focus while still presenting the ones in the back with great details, thus creating a very beautiful mosaic.
Bravo and TFS

Oh what a wonderful B&W scene! That heavy snow settled on the tree branches make it a real work of art.
I find this quite amazing how each narrow branch holds such a thick amount of snow. And interesting patterns and designs - only nature can come up with this result
