Snow and Sunshine

At last snow has arrived for a stay here.. We have a good amount already and we hope to get more this week. So finally I could take some winter landscapes I wanted for so long.

Yesterday we went for a little walk up in the Mecsek with my girlfriend's father to take some pictures, and had the luck to have a beautiful sunshine while we were there, so we could take decent images of the snowy landscape. I loved the shadows on the snow, I couldn't have hoped for better conditions.

Not my best lens but for a wide angle that's what I have and I think the polarizer worked well.
Adjustments were of the usual type.

I hope you like it too!

At first I almost forgot: this is my 100th post on TN :)

Have a nice week,

Szia Andor!

Itt vagyok újra... Mármint az oldalon (tegnap nem volt időm rá). Csodálatos havas tájkép, gyönyörűen fogtad meg az ég kékjét és a havat is, tökéletes expozíció, a kompozíció pedig tanítani való. Mint egy képeslap. Fantasztikusan szép - érdemes volt várni a hóra. :)

Grat nem csak a kiváló képhez, de a 100. feltöltéshez is. Szép jubileum, legszebb képeid egyikével. Csak így tovább!

Baráti üdv, Laci

Hi Andor
Congratulation for this 100th post!
Wonderful this capture!
Great colors to the sky and clouds.

Hello Andor,
Congratulations on reaching your first 100 on TN!
This celebratory winter image shows a fine pattern of frosted branches against an incredibly blue sky! The composition of these young trees standing in the snow is very good too and the lighting adds attraction to the image.
Thanks and look forward to seein many more from you!
Kind regards,

Dear Andor

Congratulations for your anniversary! You offer us a nice and very seasonal present. The subject is beautiful, the composition is perfect. It's so nice to see the snowcovered branches highlighted by the blue sky. From my point of view the effect of the polarizing filter is a little bit too strong, but this is very personal...

Kind regards

Hi Andor and congratulations for your 100th post!

It's indeed a magical number and you treated it with a magically looking photo :)
The white branches of the trees here - especially in the upper part - look like from a fairy tale and contrast superbly with the deep blue sky.
The feeling here is that of freshness - a bit of cold form the snow and a bit of warmth from the sunlight - so a very nice image to stare at for a while :)
Composition-wise, i think i would have tried to place the road a bit more into the frame, but this is a personal thought.
Even so, i like your shot here and i congratulate your for it.

Bravo and many more photos on TN!!!

Congratulations on your 100th post, Andor!
Also thanks for your kind words on my recent picture.
This is a wonderful winter landscape. The polarizer filter has lent the image great clarity and has shown a beautiful deep blue sky.
Well done and all the best for your next 100!

Hi Andor,
Talk about a strong CP effect. Normally I prefer a more natural looking sky, but with this photo the bold colors and contrast work well. It makes for a kind of semi infrared photo.

P.S. Congrats on your 100th upload

Hi Andor.

Beautiful winter image against the saturated blue sky. Very good choice of tall frame with very good management of light and shadow.

TFS and best regards.

Hello Andor,
Congratulations on reaching 100! This is a very beautiful winter landscape and I like the effect of the polarizing filter, it lifts the simple composition a lot. Lovely colours and great sharpness.
