  1. Those willows are exercising their photogenic qualities to the utmost! The swirls in the shadow area between the trees look as though they have come from another event but give an added twist to complement the trees.

    A very nicely composed shot that conveys the ‘nice’ side of winter!

  2. Well done for avoiding a winsome title (my fourth comment about a title in a row).

    This location has some basic compositional qualities that fit the frame well. I can imagine a *not* nice winter shot of the same scene.

  3. Agree with John.

    I also like the calm serenity of the scene, although the little kid in me wants to run out and put down fresh tracks.

  4. What’s all that white stuff? Volcanic ash, dandruff? It’s not snow is it? Haven’t seen that for years! That amount of snow would confuse the locals, they wouldn’t venture outdoors. Anyone for a BBQ?

    It is an almost idyllic snow scene and the invitation to put tracks into the virgin snow is quite strong.

  5. Certainly serene – rather than imagining it I would very much like to request the ‘not’ nice winter shot of the same scene (can we do requests on Stills?) The composition fits all the rules which leaves me wanting a slight section of it being unruly. All the detail in the trees does negate the need for detail in the snow.

  6. That yellowy brown of the willow branches is gorgeous.

  7. Anticipatory has been a word that has stuck in my mind the last two days with this one. In all its sereness and silence I’m just left waiting for the next scene…

  8. John – The swirls are in the thin layer of ice on the pond.

    Akikana – There are more scenes to come, but I’m afraid that none of them get to the not nice aspects of the location—fact is, those would have been a bit tough to find that day. A few days earlier, before two days of snow, some boys (Rex and Doonster can identify) had tromped around making their marks.

  9. after yet another day of 39-41C weather I’d really like you to send a chunk of that ice over here.
    This looks so inviting and I’d be another for making tracks through all of this, love the detail in those branches.
