I was thinking the spring was already here, but yesterday...a big surprise: lots of snow!

This winter it only snowed once. Why now???
So so, I was really really happy!

This place is about 500 meters from where I live.
I took this picture shortly after 4 pm.

In my WS you can see another picture near to my house, taken at about 9 o'clock.

Different perspective in TE.

like this, the raw frosty landscape, the good winter photograph - using the place and the time in the 100% very much appeals to me how you saw it Liliana

Hi Liliana
Yea it is still winter, and I can see every thing turned blue.
Great POV, good composition, shortly sayed - well captured.

Hi Lili,
What a great winter capture.Excellent POV, light and good atmosphere.TFS.


Beautiful scene, excellent presentation, nice contrast, details, and lighting.
Very nice!

I'd be very proud of this shot Liliana, it's just lovely.
My instincts would have been to include more land on the bottom,
but i can see why you went for the sky :)
Great cloud formations. Really well seen and taken.
Regards, Vincent

Hello Liliana,

I love it. Very limited in toning. Only grey-blue, very minimal, uniform but at the same time very powerful. And I think black should be black. And you managed that very well!

You had snow in Germany! Here in the Netherlands not even once... :-/

Greetings! Dennis

Very nice. I like the cool, blue hue. Well composed with a simple, yet effective, frame.

Hi Liliana
That lonely tree in the snow is probably the last of the winter. Trees are already blooming around here, so it will be here soon

You should have kept your snow as its on its way here.
Fresh coat of snow always gives beautiful captures and this one is no exception.

Hi Liliana,

Great shot! Lovely composition, crisp sharp and a great wintery scene! Great posting!



hello Liliana,
great landscape of winter season
i like the point of view and the
soft colors and atmosphere

best sERGIO

hi liliana, neat shot, very cold shot with cool blues, nice composition, has a lonely feeling with the one tree, nice work,

Bonsoir Lili,
Last suprises of the winter, magnificiently photographed.
The bluish colours, gives a softness to your POV.
One would need that in spring, when this tree is covered with leaves to the tender green, you takes it again photographs some and so on, at the time of all the changes of seasons, of course it's just a suggestion of me.
Good night, best regards

Wow Liliana ,
You have a fantastic ,but cold,view.

Hello Lili,

Very nice winter shot, I love its blue tone!
Very well framed, excellent sharpness.

Both this image and the WS image really tell the story of your winter - Brrrrrrrrr. Great back lighting on the tree. Fantastic sky - looks like more snow.


Hello Liliana,
Beautiful winter scene, excellent composition and point of view, beautiful colors and tones, superb sharpness and depth of field.

Hello Liliana
I see we don't have the exclusivity with our snow. I love he silhouetted tree against that light blue sky.The fences tracing merging lines are interesing.I love that tree way back to the left. I think i prefer your workshop with the snowloaded trees creating a kind of tunel.
Nicely done

Beautiful blue tones
great pic

Splendid Liliana the tree standing as a silhouette is so beautiful. Love
the up hill pov with the snow reflecting the blue light from the sky. Nice
delicate details on the far away post of the fences. Well seen TFS
You are so very lucky to live in such a lovely countryside. Also I
checked it out this would also be very beautiful in B&W.


Bonsoir Liliana,
Beautiful picture and winter scene, excellent point of view and great colors and sharp picture, I love the light and you are made a great composition, nice contrast and light, very well done.

Hi Lili:
Most excellent in everyway!!!

excellent compo!! really a perfect light.. and shadows!! forms and colours are impressive!! wow.. wonderful capture Lili!
ciao Marco

Lovely frozen landscape. Great colours and sharp details. The lonely tree is eye catcher
Best wishes,

Foarte frumoase tonurile si compozitia.


Ciao Lili, splendido l'albero che protende le sue nude branche verso il plumbeo cielo,magnifica composizione invernale, bravissima, ciao Silvio

Hi Lili,
This is a fine low light impression of a winter landscape. Excellent composition with the lonely tree far out of the centre. The blue colour tone makes it an almost intrigue scene. Excellent camera handling!

Hello Liliana.
Really a beautiful late snow landscape, but glad it was 'over the border' , haha
Perfect composition with fantastic colours.
Best regards from Jan

Hello Liliana. The title works well and you have captured the stillness very well here. The composition is well anchored to the dead tree with small foliage on the ground and the fences create nice layers of this white field of snow. The light and shadow work well here and just stunning against the winter sky. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Beautiful shot Liliana.
I can see how cold it is.
Well done and stay warm,

Hello Lili,
The single tree makes a very imposing focal point and it is perfectly placed!
I like the limited colours which emphasises the feeling of cold!
Good composition, following the theory of thirds, with the tree linking the different elements.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Servus Lili,

Foarte frumoasa compozitia, iar tonurile imi plac de asemenea, excelent punct de vedere, totul este minunat, desi preferam sa aduci un peisaj primavaratic acum. :-) Si la noi a nins ieri de dimineata.
Imi plac si versiunile din WE si TE la fel de mult.

O seara frumoasa,

P.S. Merci pentru comentariul lebedei de azi, ma bucur ca ti-a placut, este si preferata mea din cele trei pe care le-am postat.

A stunning shot Liliana! I love the mood you have created. Helen x

Very nice, i like everything in this image.


Buna Lili,
... s-a dus cu sentimentul de "cip-cirip" :)))
Ieri a fulguit si in Bonn, dar cu soare... ceva ce nu am mai vazut pana acum. Nu s-a depus zapada, dar a fost tare ciudat...
Imi place tare mult incadrarea cu acel copac singuratic.
Cerul arata superb cu "fereastra" aceea de lumina,
iar rama se potriveste tare fain.
Felicitari pentru inca o frumusete in galeria ta.
O zi cat mai primavaratica iti doresc ;)

ps: ieri seara am fost in Rheinaue si erau copacii infloriti...
:) revin

Hello Liliana
Great shot very romantic landscape i like the tone colors very beautiful.
Nice place and good composition and very sharp details
Well done


Excelenta compozitie, tonuri albastrui si atmosfera.

A wonderful winter landscape. I also like what you did in the workshop to lessen the blue and the other POV is just as interesting.



Hola Liliana.
Una preciosa imagen con una nevada fabulosamente captada. Muy suaves tonos azulados que transmiten el frío invernal...
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Hello Liliana,
lovely, lovely snow. Where I live we are still waiting for a fall like this, so i can understand your excitement. I like the blue tones here, the heavy clouds that may still have more snow in them.And that spare, gaunttree, waiting for spring.
regards bev.
I like the workshop too, with the frosted trees...lovely!

Hello Lili,
A very pleasant composition, and the naked tree theme is very well presented!
The different blue tones create the atmosphere, and the winter feeling is still present indeed!

Hi Liliana,

Excellent shot, the tree look so lonely by itself, great details, but I feel the tree is a bit over sharpen, still the composition, the colours and the beautiful scenery is so wonderful to see.

Bonjour Liliana
Ravi de te retrouver sur Tl, il y a longtemps que nos routes ne s'étaient pas croisées. J'admire tes photos de paysages enneigés, dont celle ci aux si jolies couleurs, même si ma préférence va à une autre que j'ai déjà commentée il y a longtemps :
celle -ci
, absolument superbe.
Vivement le retour de la neige en Allemagne !

Bua Lili!
