[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It may be hard to tell that the Fox River flows just behind these trees or that the morning sun is making its first rising bid to burst through the canopy of fog. But there's no question these trees are dancing to the music of the morning, beckoning with ice-laden boughs and frozen fingers for all who wish to view their spectacle.

This shot was taken with manual white balance on the snow and spot metering on the fog.

Magnifique, très belle représentation de l'hiver je me demande s'il n'aurait pas été préférable d'enlever l'arbre en premier plan, une belle réussite.

Hi Jim!

You present us a very delicate and appeasing winter atmosphere held in delightful pastel color tones. They provide the picture a romantic aspect. The lighting is perfect, the result is a winter scenery that invites me for contemplation and meditation.

Thanks for this!

Kind regards


I am not going to ever get away from the snow am I? Some days it feels like that...my first critique was of yellow flowers and this appears to be my last for a few hours....so it gives me time to think about what will come today as this white stuff is still falling gently here...Your patterns are super by the way...naturally wonderful...life is like that. We see the beauty even though it sometimes brings us pain.

Hello Jim,
Thank you for sharing this beautiful image of the snow wonderful in it's best!
very good pov which included snow covered trees in the thick fog!
a very pleasing and pleasant composition to view and enjoy
many thanks
