All are fine compositions, Hans.  It would be hard for me to choose a favorite.

Thank you very much Keith! Much appreciated.

Yes - I have the same difficulty.

Nice to see the area in its winter state.

Thanks Hugh, that's a compliment to me  :)

I' like to add "ish" to "winter", just a couple of hours of snow doesn't a winter make. The road coming into the parking lot was snow covered when i arrived in the morning (7 ish), but snow had already left that road when i returned approx. 9.30. So much for winter  :o. Perhaps there is some more winter coming this coming weekend, fingers crossed  ;D

So, we received the first sub zero temperatures throughout the NL for the first time in almost 2 years. Just a few below, but anyway.

Of course, i dragged myself out of bed early on the Sunday morning, to my usual "hide out".

1. "Alpen glow", pre-dawn glow on a cozy embrace. An exposure blend to get detail in the moon.
2. Part of the "cow highway" around the little lake (looking away from the water), the path the (semi-wild) cows in the area take to get to the water.
3. "Entanglement", fronzen detail of said cow highway.
4. Ice structure
5. "Lost branch", i helped it onto the ice  ;D

Interested to hear what you guys think.

Great winter-series, Hans.  Also the snow-images. !

I like especially that 'Alpen glow'. !

Love the "Lost Branch".  Very poetic.

Thank you very much John, Thomas, Akira and Bent. I appreciate your feedback very much! I'm also glad that everyone seems to have a different favourite  :D

Love the "Lost Branch".  Very poetic.

Thanks Akira, it's poetic in a way. I didn't mean to, but if you look closely, the side branches seem to have leaves under the ice. This is nice, but totally incidental, as i kinda pushed the little branch further onto the ice in a random way.

Caught some more wintery images, after we'd received proper snow in the NL.

Hans, another two enjoyable sequences (#64 & #70).

As someone from a temperate climate, it is nice to still see some ice in these climate changing times.  (Less so I acknowledge for those in non-temperate northern & southern climes.)

Love the first two images of the new post.  I might have liked to try pano stitching for the first scene with the additional frame to the right.

Thanks Akira. My thought exactly, i do have the broader frame, but there is a troublesome area to the right hand side. So, i decided to leave that out in the end. Thanks for your thoughts, i do sincerely appreciate that!

Some more outings, some more images. Some images from 2 outings, one week apart. The first one is a sunrise from a week before the other three, also "sunrise" images. Interested in your opinions.

Great sunrise in the first image Hans.

The 'moon' in the second one, is a value added bonus and enhances the atmosphere!
