[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While I was out shooting clouds that looked like they were pregnant with snow, it did indeed start to snow just a wee. On my way back to the house I noticed that one of the remnants of a wild carrot seedpod, which looked like a catcher's mitt, had just caught a small flake. I tried to get the white snow offset against the forest on the island ... It was a pretty dull scene at that time, almost a black and white moment.

He Hello Jay , What a cute little tri ,good pose and colours .greetings Teunie.

Hi Jay.
I like your very expressive and creative picture because I like the combination of close-up and landscape images. Excellent POV, nicely selected DOF and exact impressive composition. Beautiful work. My best regards and TFS.

Nice "symbolism" here in this shot.....the
portent of snow against a stark background.
I think you've done a great job of capturing
the sense and feel of WINTER!! Nice detail;
good contrast!!

Dear Jay,
I do like your photo of this "Bonsai" it is presented like a Chinese painting.
You perfectly manipulated the depth of field achieving the "foggy" background.

The stark colours telling the story of winter, without having to check the date on which your photo was shot.

A beautiful image!

PS I saw Calgary as your domicile. I shudder to think how cold it must be there in December - I was freezing there in June.
Have a nice day,
Kind Regards
