[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken on Saturday, during our trek through Gorce mountains. In the beginning we had - 23C. In the end it was about -14C. But, there was no wind, no snowing. If you are right wearing it's all right to deal with such a temperature :).
We started from Rabka Piotrowka, went through Maciejowa challet (about 800m), Jaworzyna Ponicka (996m), Stare Wierchy (998m) and we finished in Obidowa.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciej,
Beautiful! I love scenes like these. Did you use a tripod or is this handheld? This seems as though it would be a questionable hand held with an iso setting of 200. You got great detail in the snow as I can see the texture throughout. Well done. :)

Hello Maciej,
This could be just about anywhere here in Ohio, as we had a big snow storm move in yesterday. What I like about days like this is you can go out and find tracks of all the nocturnal animals that were out and about the night before.
Wonderful exposure and nicely composed image. Sounds like you are having some really cold days. Your right, if your dressed appropriately the cold is no big deal.

Hello Maciej,
What I love on this shot is the silence transmitted by it. You also have well chosen the composition even if I would have taken the whole image very slightly towards the right. Love the grey color of the frozen water.
Thanks and kind regards
