I wish a merry Christmas to each and every TN member !!!

I hope everything will be great for you, and I hope everything you wish for (or at least someof the things you wish for) will come true on these days of celebration !

For this very special day, I decided to pos a picture I have taken some weeks ago, early in the morning, at this perfect moment when the sun is starting to pierce through the fog. Everyhing was golden - the trees, the air, the fog, it was like walking in a fairy tale. It didn't ast long, maybe 10 mn, but it was fantastic...

No time to write any more now, but I'll come back soon after Christmas with new pictures - sorry for my long absence, by the way. I have no real excuse, just so many things to do, and not much time left ; but now I suddenly thought back to TN, and I realized how much I miss you all, my nature-loving friends from all over the world, so here I am...

Once again, I wish you all the best and all the happiness in the world !

Hello Valerie.

Hi Valerie,
This is very beautiful, with such a great warm mood and such a serene feel. I love how the early morning light is broken up by the naked trees and how the fog has accentuated this even more. The dreamy feel is perfectly captured.

Hello Valerie
bellissima composizione in cui ritrai, grazie ad un fantastico gioco di luci, la bellezza di questo bosco nonostante la stagione fredda ricopra di brina il sottobosco che attende la primavera per risvegliarsi dal letargo. Bellissimi i colori.
Merry Christmas.

Dear Valerie!

Halloo dear Valerie,
YOU ARE BACK! It is so good - like seeing at a reunion a school sweetheart - long not seen but not forgotten!

Your charming way of expressing an ambiance with your camera - as well as with words in your notes is immediately recognisable.

The grass still shrouded in fog and the sun - as it rises higher - lifting the mist partly from the trees in the middle, creates a wonderful contrast to the trees still in the dark on the outside, thus forming a natural frame.

A beautiful scene from your beautiful Alsace.

My best wishes to you and your loved ones

Dear Val,
We also missed You, be sure... This pic is fantastic, lights are even unbelievable, exposure and composition can't be any better. A superb photo. Bravo.
I wish You and Your loved ones a very happy and productive 2010. Friendly regards from Hungary, László

Hi Valerie,
wonderful lighting effect through the branches. I like the pestel colours and the hazy view, shown in a very mysterious view.
well presented composition.


Hello Valerie
Wow, the lighting here is so nice. It creates a warm and cozy mood. Lovely composition too.

Hi Valérie.

Love the way you played with the light in this wood. Amazing ray and hues celebrated by the tall trees. Really wonderful moment registered and thanks for sharing.

Best regards,

bonjour Valérie

j'ai manqué cette superbe photo d'ambiance de toi,
une forêt majestueuse d'Alsace, la lumière et cette
belle couleur avec les arbres font la charme de l'image,
