  1. What a delicate curve there is to the bank and that rime of ice and snow.

  2. I’m loving that you are out shooting in such lovely weather. I adore a photograph with some atmosphere(ics) like this. It’d be an appealing photograph without the snow -the S curves and movement and all that stuff.

    But for me, it’s the snowing that is where it shines. Shooting in bad weather, fog, rain, snow, boiling sun, anything that might raise the image above the normal and what most people are willing to put up with, makes it easier to spend more time looking at the picture.

    Also makes me wonder if I’ll see snow this year at all.

  3. Shooting in snow is a treat but a challenge for keeping the lens clear.

    The curves, the brown vegetation and the leaning poplars (I think that’s what they are) come together in a beautiful study of winter.

  4. Great sense of weather, makes me want to be there (I love this sort of stuff). I also like the way the lean of the trees gives a sense of the sweep of the prevailing wind. A subtle hint of coloue breaks up the flat light.

  5. This picture feels more chilly than the last, matching our 17C lower max temperature today than the last few days.
    The sweep of the waters edge, the leaning trees and the falling snow give this a whole lot of movement. All of the detail is across the middle section of the picture which plays with the depth perception, I expect to see something up close but have only pure white snow.

  6. Full of movement (to contrast to the stillness of the last shot). Everything here is hurrying. Even the trees.

  7. That S curve is very strong in the composition ( Sigmoid Curve?)
    I like the monochromatic feel of this, the best kind of colour images! :-)

  8. Such a soft, beautiful color palette. Everything sweeping over to the right makes it very dynamic, yet it also feels very quiet. I will want to come back to visit here again when we are in the middle of our hot summer!

  9. Definitely movement and less anticipation than the previous scene. That strong S is accentuated by the tilt of the trees and that spit of land keeps it all well balanced.

  10. Gordon – I have to confess that I was never out for very long. As John observes, it was tricky keeping the lens clear. One of our snow days the snow was blowing sideways. It’s strange being in the midst of posting this series now while it’s 60 degrees outside.
