What a joy to see this picture taken with your Leica!
It transmits to me the mood very well described in your notes.
It's very good the composition made and the way the silhouettes vanishes gradually when going to the back.
I want to wish you a very Happy New year to you and your great big family, you should be very proud of all them.
And hope to follow your work here and continue learning for all that you have to give us.
Take care and warm regards,

But you are getting stronger every day and your spirit has grown stronger because of the effort you put into your physical recovery. Your story is inspirational.
A great composition - wonderful yet again. I run out of things to say when they're all good! ha ha

welcome to the brave new year of 2008 and may it bring you some joy and happiness and no extra hardship or nerve damage.I am more careful anymore as since I have become middle aged I do not heal so very fast anymore and the thought of going down on a fall from slipping on ice doesn't turn me on as your last paragraph suggests in your note.Your photo has a sullen and dark look and feel about it,a look that is made ever more so by the fact it is done in black&white.All looks good in this shot and the field of depth is great given the conditions at the time.A fine photo for TN and I hope to see many more from you this year. Tfs. Bob

A beautiful scene from a beautiful person. The silhouettes of the trees are wonderful. Your notes give so much more meaning to the picture. I, too, slipped on the ice, but did no permanent damage. I broke my hip and was out of commission for six months. I am not as brave as you. I vowed I would not spend one more winter in the northeast. That is how I ended up in Arizona.

Greetings from Bulgaria!!
This is a cracking capture!
The atmosphere created by the mist and stark contrast is fabulous!
Very good clarity and sharpness.
Well done Bob!

Those trees have a very ominous feel to them Bob, it looks like they're trying to form a gang or something to me, huddling up like that. This is a shot with alot of mood and and deceptively huge depth too..i have stared at it for some time, enjoying it immensely.
All the best for the new year ahead.

Another class image, with perfect balance and tone. I love the sence of cold and wet that almost gusts out of the picture, and the b&w adds real drama to the image.
Thanks for sharing,

Our bodies are "truely" most fragile.
And, a lot of people abuse this beautiful frame we call "body" by taking drugs etc:.
You, Bob, are true inpiration to us all; you are a FIGHTER.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.

A beautiful capture of this Monochrome scenery. Very well captured with a very good composition. BTW is it a scanned image from film or a digital one. It looks beautiful. Thanks a lot for sharing.

This is a wonderful view of the dark forest surrounding you. I like the misty look of the distant spruces. Sorry to hear about your accident which still affects you. Take care when you go out!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

All the best for you in 2008!
What a fantastic post! Picture is great, with dark/misty mood. Black and white is perfect choice and Leica made it even more classical. And second part - your note - it is really good read!

Dark & foreboding mood Bob, without a doubt..The image speaks to your unfortunate mishap.
Your fate might've been as one Dr. Atkins (atkins diet guru)..he slipped and fell on an icy sidewalk, lost his life. I compound fractured my left leg in a motorcycle vs car accident in my late teens. I have a slight limp now..I could be the one-legged man I suppose..
Zero degrees eh..It got down into the mid-twenties last night, busted an outside faucet I left under pressure..da.
Well done mf,
