Bravo pour cette composition hivernale très réussie.
Les tons sont chaleureux malgré la glace...
I won't talk about the picture this time, I'm sure you know I love it.
I just tell you I just finished a book yesterday, you probably know that feeling of dissapointment when you would read further if there was more but you know there couldn't be written more, the story is ended. You're looking for something that you know it does not exist. You described this feeling of empty space in my mind and heart perfectly, in the right moment wether this was your intention or not.
And at the same time, you wrote a story making the same feeling that I would read further if...
This was the most complete experience I've recieved here so far, thank you very much!

I was looking through your pictures and I'm very impressed
about your art, capturing pictures of Icy environments
Like this one, great POV and marvelous composition.. Well
done, and thank you to stop by.. I sure will visit your collection again

Hola Mark! hehe mysterious book, I like yout note, very convincing one!
Also the leaf looks fascinating, amazing composition,strong colors, good sharpness, all the best.
Ja, Du hast es gefunden, das Buch. Die Natur verbirgt die schönsten Geschichten, man muss nur seine Fantasie walten lassen, was Du anscheinlich sehr gut kannst. Eine kleine Bemerkung betreffend Dein Bild, das mir vom Sujet her und den Farben sehr gefällt: hätte man das Blatt nicht ein wenig nach rechts rücken müssen, dann wäre die Komposition vielleicht ausgewogener? Ce n'est qu'une suggestion :-)
Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Tag

Exceptional note Markus!
And an exceptional shot!
Great attention to detail here.
Wow there's so much to look at!
The orange leaf stands out like a sore thumb.
Thanks very much my friend.
p.s thankyou for adding me as a favourite as well. It means a lot!
Again a very nice abstract from you and also, this time, a very beautiful story.
Just like Nick, right now when i'm writing this comment, i too have a smile on my face :)
These two - the story and the picture go indeed very well together and are both presented so nicely by you.
The picture itself is gorgeous, with that thin leaf surrounded by ice layers itself. Its texture with surely disintegrate once the ice will melt, just like the book if someone would have chosen to open it.
Very beautiful details, lovely colors and contrast. But there is one thing that i might have changed: the centered composition...
Anyway, very nicely done, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

When I was 6 or 7 years old I usually look through the half melted and frozen again ice and imagine different things. It was many years ago, but I remember it was so interesting.
Nice picture Markus

Original imagen con buenos detalles y gran nitidez.
Una buena nota.
Un cordial saludo, JL.
This is a very well thought out and beautiful compositon. I'm not much a person for words so I wouldn't be that interested in reading "The Leaf", but I'd happily spend an hour of two looking at your picture of one. Great posting.
Wow........simply majestic and you have created a masterpiece here. Such awesome details and colours and a fantastic perspective. It was so nice reading your lucid note and the touching tale. All the 'pages' of your book surely has lots of words of wisdom and I can feel the warmth within. Excellent composition. Kudos.

A subtle beauty frozen in time.
Nicely composed with sharp focus and detail.
The ice has created lovely patterns and light refractions.

Du mit Deinen Augen muss wirklich nicht weit gehen, um etwas Interessantes zu finden, so wie hier. Und wenn Du es gefunden hast, denkst Du Dir noch eine ganze Geschichte aus dazu. Also wir TN Leute geniessen das natürlich!
Ich habe beim Pistenskifahre am Schwarzsee an Dich gedacht, wenn wieder frisch verschneite Hänge anstanden.
Herzlichen Dank und Gruss nach Tentlingen

The frozen leaf makes a stunning impact in midst of all the ice!
The subjects combine the change of seasons well, as the frosty winter comes after the colours of autumn...
Well framed, good details!

Impressionante efeito desta foto, ficou bem legal a criatividade usada nela.
A composição e cores são agradaveis.
when i first saw your picture makes me remeber a book i read when a was a child: "the autumm of Freddy the leaf". It´s the story of a leaf, what it feels when the autumm is approching and knows that must died. It´s a really nice book, about feelings.
About the picture... simply great. Lovely composition: I like the idea of the water moving and the leaf and the ice like steady.
have a nice day Markus!
Hello Markus !
I liked your last picture with ice, but now I see that there are many moreof them ! In this one I like the contrast betwenn the warm colors of the leaf and the cold ice. Excellent details, nice composition, wonderful colors and exposure, and I also liked reading your note, it is beautiful. Very well done !

I really love your series of ice art - beautifully seen and full of originality and artistic merit - as you know I also strive to see things where things aren't normally there to be seen, and you do this extremely well.
Your accompanying prose is also inspiring and thought-provoking - great work my friend.
Dream on Markus!! What a story :))))
And here's your Leaf:
"Caught in icy splendour
Frozen to the core
Waiting for the sun to come
to open up the door..."
