[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Went for a drive on one of the country roads on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada.
This pic was taken after a snowfall we had last night. When it snows, it snows. When it stops the beauty of a winter wonderland is incredible. Snow sticks to trees of all kinds, fences, wire fences, anything. It's just amazing.

To all of you at Trek Nature, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our home to yours.

This photo was taken with the S5000 hand held.

Una imagen casi irreal, con aspecto de postal navideńa pintada a mano. :-)

An almost unreal image, with aspect of Christmas postcard painted at hand :-)

What a beautiful shot. Absolutely perfect winter-shot, peaceful and quiet. Well done.
P.S. The more pictures of Canada I see, the more I think it looks like Estonia.

Beautiful Mike.
It could be a picture from Sweden.
Very good composition, colours and details.
Great work.

A lovely snow scene. I see the snow has a tinge of blue. This is very clear and a good composition. I am enjoying these white snow pictures. TFS, Janice

Great sharpness of this white-blue-black shot. I like fragile looking branches full of snow and composition.

Happy Holidays to you as well, Mike! This is a lovely winter scene. My only nit-pik is I think you have oversharpened it a bit.

Very good shot, great composition. very good perspective.
Well done.

And Happy Holidays to you also Mike! I like where this one takes the eye. It's a great "winterized" shot with the converging tree line of sight. TFS!

Salut Mike!
Beau paysage hivernal.

The same wishes travel to Canada from Spain!
This is a very good scenary to show us, and I liked very much when you said "When it snows, it snows", we use very much this way of superlative where I live and in Spanish language :-D
I like the shot very much. Although I find interesting the result, I have curiosity why you did not crop tighter at the bottom to make simetric. Surely it would be the first thing I would try when cropping :DDD
Thanks for posting.

Mike, outstanding composition. The simplicity of the compo yet such a strong compo is striking. Great depth perspective and POV. Wonderfull shot, 10 points for this landscape, really!

Mike, I like this a lot. In fact, it seems a painting. Great POV depicted within a nice composition.

Hi Mike,

A picture like this makes me miss the winter in Sweden. A very well composed winter photo with a lot of details and great colours.
