Very nice in B&W Bob, the reflection is excellent. This has a stark beauty all it's own..
Chop wood, carry water says it all.
I enjoyed reading your impressions of approaching winter, and how you got the shot, an interesting read :)
Very well done!

I suppose I'm a color enthusiast: a grey day in winter makes me long for light and color. But if one is to portray a dull wintery day without snow then B&W states the position very clearly as you have done in this shot: you felt the picture tells you that the best way is to express it without color. The imagination sets it alive for the summer and the teeming life to come in this small nameless pond. This is a photo of a pond in limbo..
Enjoy your day,

Brrrr! What a cold-looking place!
Such a good photo that has a peaceful and calm atmosphere which is enhanced by the B+W.
+++ I love the reflection of the pines in the water.
Perfect framing and composition.
Great exposure aswell.
--- Nothing :)
Well done Bob,

Just a quick one today.
A splendid shot here, one that reminds my of the great wild habitat i found near the Tahoe Lake.
This place must be a terrific sanctuary for all sort of wild animals - from insects to mamals and bird, and therefore a perfect TN member sight ;)
I really like the conversion wot B&W; it really adds drama to the composition.
Bravo and TFS
Hi Bob. The Black / White in this picture give the cold look . colour would have not managed this. all looks so still other than the ripples on the water. a good compostion. well done TFS. good notes too.
your choice of choosing monochrome makes the shot more realestic in portraying a winter day, liked the composition and the pov, the reflections add to the beauty,
tfs & regards
Just marking this post wonderful post from you and will come back with a proper critique later.
A beautiful black white landscape shot. Lovely composition and very good DOF maintained throughout the frame. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I do get a really cold chill looking at this scene. Lovely composition and POV. Good contrast and I think it's the light that makes it special. Well done.
Best regards, Steve

Hello Bob, very nice black and white composition, excellent point of view and wonderfull refection,
A very good B&W treatment of this beautiful little pond.
You have framed it well naturally with the trees and the focus is sharp.
Very good contrast.
The reflections on the water are beautiful.
A lovely composition.

I personally love this shot very much. Near by my home, there are the very large lake, is named, "Mud lake" and small no name pond beside Mud lake. Actually, I used to go there in flying season of dragonfly. As an odonatist, I've been researching and classifying them for a few years and such a places are where I want to go and look for. Anyway, this no name pond in your photo looks very similar to my pond.
It's very similar and familiar to me. :-)
(My English skill is not that good, I'm still working on it.)
Thanks for sharing this lovely photo.
