A view looking back at the Messes mountains from below on the outskirts of the town of Zalau after the first snow falls of this coming winter season. These mountains in the back ground are the location of my previous posts of the first snow and of autumn.

Buna Steve & Ioana,
frumoasa compozitie. O fotografie reusita!

Numai bine,

Hej Steve and Ioana,

Amazing composition with tree and beautiful winter scenery. Nice cold colours and well framed. Good work & TFS :]

Greetings from Poland,

very, very beautifull.. its like a postcard..

I like your composition with perfect location of tree and backgrounded houses, their colors with snowed atmosphere are great as well. The grey sky helps to stress on houses

Hoi Steve and Ioana Hamilton
A good composition of the tree.
Great landscape.
I come next year - for the first time - to RoemeniŽ

Hi there,
Lovely winter scene and good composition. (Some of the small branches appear to be red and blue on my monitor - not sure what that is)
Well done

Tree well exposed good texture and the red and yellow buildings add a nice tough to the image. The dusting of snow adds to the mood.

Hi Steve,
What a beautiful landscape! I like the sense of space, here with this tree dominating the composition and accentuating the effect of depth. Excellent colors and very good rendered of beginning winter tones. Bravo! Annie

Yesterday we had our 1st flurries!
I really like this one in your series.. the very small hint of color on the houses in the BG... nice winter landscape


wonderful photo with great composition in this tree in FG, and colors houses in BG.
i like it.


Wow, this is a gorgeous image!
Nice framing with such a majestic tree, and the wintery feel to it is perfectly captured.
Well done - Vincent.

Buna S> si I..
La voi iarna este atat de frumoasa reprezentata...,prin fiecare imagine..
Cu toate ca mie nu-mi prea place anotimpul -iarna, voi ma faceti sa-mi fie drag:-)

Multumesc si..numai bine,

Hello Steve,

Beautiful winterscape.
Love the POV and composition here.
Good control over light. TFS


Hi There,
The thumbnail belies the b/w illusion. I like the framing of the tree around the distant houses making the shape of the tree the focus of the shot rather than the scene as a whole. It's lovely and moody.
Best wishes,
