Another pic clicked on my old Blackberry 9700. I really admired its camera feature for the image quality.

Coming back to this image, I was driving to office via Van Brackle Road in Holmdel/Morganville area in Monmouth County, NJ. It was a clear day after what had been a severe snowstorm in Central NJ. We had around 2 feet of snow in just 24 hours. Arriving into this area, I was immensely taken in by the light and stretching shadows. I tried parking the car to the side and then clicked this pic. This remains amongst my favorites clicked that day.

And going by @marhowie's suggestion, I have used a 3:2 ratio in this picture. Eliminated some dark shadows in the lower right hand corner.

Let it snow! Let it snow!! Let it snow!!!

Merry Christmas everyone.

Hi Gaj,
very nice and interesting winter landscape. Nice composition and great sharpness. I love landscapes at all.
Thanks for sharing,
Marry Christmas to You,

The trees, fence and fresh snow is a lovely combination. Personally I'd crop out the sides (sunlight and disturbed snow)to keep the composition simpler and give more attention to the trees etc.
