Hello to all!
Finally - winter came! At least to the mountains, because in the city there's nothing like this. You can see now one of the first shots I've done on my hiker trip yesterday - a house among snowy pines in the village of Ómassa.

Ómassa's located in the valley of Garadna creek in the Bükk mountains. It isn't an old colony - was established in the 18th century by Slovakian iron workers. Officially a part of Miskolc now, although it's more than 10 kilometers far from the city. Located on 480 meters above sea level. The 1st ever iron forge of Hungary was built here in 1803, constructed by the German engineer Heinrich Fassola.

If You leave the terminus of the cityliner bus no. 15 on the hiker ways "yellow line" and "blue line", this is what You see after 200 meters of walking... A tiny little house crowned with spruces - and this very moment covered with snow.

PP: contrast, saturation, sharpness, framing, re-sizing.

WS: b/w version (antic and sepia tones)

Very beautiful! I love the trees! The house appears to be very secluded. The green on the house looks very pretty. TFS

Hello Laszlo!

Beautiful country snow scene Laszlo.

Excelent done Lazslo, the light and the focus onthe green house make the picture, congrats.

Hát szóval látszik, hogy ezt a képet se akárki csinálta! (8^D)
Hogy itt minden előre meg lett tervezve, hogy ez nemcsak olyan "lenyomomagombot" kép! Remek a kompozíció, a kontraszt és az élesség is. Sajnálom, hogy a mérete így lecsökkent és talán itt fehér keretet használtam volna(:kis fehér, kis fekete/sötétzöld, nagy fehér)!

Hi dear Laszlo ,
excellent shot. great composition and excellent details.
thanks for sharing
my best wishes

Looks cold László. It looks very B&W, apart from the paintwork of the house. I like seeing the snow sitting on the trees - very Christmas card-like! Nice compostion

This is really 'my kind' of place. I love the atmosphere and decorations!! Wonderfully captured in your picture. Great pov. TFS

Hi Laszlo - this really is a fairytale winter scene, very appealling indeed! Shades of 'Narnia' about this one, and the green hut stands out very well indeed. Lovely shot!

Szia László/Laci(?) a TL-en is. :o)

Nagyon szép, hangulatos téli felvétel. A zöld oldala a háznak egyből odavonza
a szemet. Klassz kompozició!

Üdv Kanadából ... Lea :o)

Hi László,
Excellent composition. The green house in the snowy forest is perfect. It's a well balanced image, with the striking house nicely out of the centre. Well seen and captured.

:) Later...

Hi Laszlo,
A beautiful composition, catching the very tall evergreens with the snow that has clung to them, and the tiny house adding a complimentary splash of green.
Nice job,
