[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Winter is one of the four seasons of temperate zones. It is the season with the shortest days and the lowest temperatures. In areas farther from the equator, winter is often marked by snow.

Depending on place and culture, what is considered to be the start and end of winter vary. Contemporary meteorology takes winter to be the months of December, January, and February in the Northern Hemisphere and June, July, and August in the Southern Hemisphere. However, many cultures in Europe and East Asia consider winter to begin in November.

Fantastic sunset, the colours and the ice work wonderfully. Did you take any in landscape? it would be nice to see more of the colours.

Evokes winter mood.
And that frozen water is so realistic it makes me shiver with cold here in the desert!

Magnificent mood and colors in this lovely sunset, Dorota.

Hi Dorota,
Wonderful scenery and good detail. Great exposure and colours. What's the round thing in the foreground?

l'elemento che caratterizza questa foto è l'atmosfera particolare che evocano i colori tenui.
molto bella.

Vraiment tres bien dorota. J'aime bien ces photos a faible contraste tout en couleur. Bonne idée, l'arbre sur le coté, il brise la symetrie. Belle composition.


Je suis tout a fais d'accord avec Jean paul. c'est une belle composion et l'ambiance que dégage cette photo nous apaise


A sort of mesmerizing photo. Nicely executed.

Hi Dorota,
A very beautiful sunset! The pastel colors in the sky are really amazing. I love the composition and framing of this in the portrait mode. This looks great!

Dzieki za komentarz :-)
Ta fotka jest rzeczywiscie sliczna - jest w niej wlasciwie cala kwintesencja zimowego wieczoru. Piekne kolory, zawsze bardzo lubie polaczenia zimnych barw nocy z cieplym niebem o zachodzie slonca. Swietnie rozplanowana kompozycja.
