Lovely framing John. Love the almost monochrome effect the snow provides.
Make your life spectacular!

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  This looks familiar...... now that we've moved further north, we just had our first covering of snow a few days ago.  Thankfully, it didn't stay long.  :)

you did a great job capturing the mood here. i can feel the winter coming.

a technical note. i see some sharpness anomalies. could be coming from F5, but it's strange that the trees on left somehow are less sharp than the lone tree on the right at roughly the same distance. hard to tell what's going on really with the relatively small file, though.

This sure says winter! (Looks familiar-we've had some snow and cold as well...) The monotone trees are so bleak along with the gray sky. I like the bit of color in the grasses. Very effective.

Thx for the comment Joerg!
You have a very good eye! Yes, I too noted the lack of sharpness on the left side.
The only thing I can think of is some slight fogging of the lens as I was constantly in and out of my warm vehicle.
Could not see the same effect in other images taken either earlier or later that day.

This beautiful winter image looks almost like a black and white texture,
I really like how you decided to compose it with group of trees on the left that contrast with the lonely tree on the right.
