Back to Vermont for this one, I loved how the fresh snow was still settled on the evergreen trees. The foggy air was lifting as I watched.

Ouch! You caught the season and feeling well ion this one. So often folks see snow shots in the sun..which confuses the mind...but shown in this way the natural seasonal temperatures are added. This is a place one would not want to be in without knowing where the nearest warm is!:-)

Hi Donna, great shot of those evergreens filled with snow. I live in them and still haven't got a good shot to my satisfaction. I love the colours with the snow at the tip of each branch, the contrast with the trees at the bottom of the photo. The clouds on top give an idea of the height you were and sure doesn't warm up the place. The branches at the right add to the composition and frame the picture well. Thank you for such a nice picture,

Hi Donna

Lovely seasonal composition. The fog is lovely and the dull conditions really bring out the contrast between the trees and the snow.


Hello Donna,
splendid shot with a splecial athmosphere, lovely point of view, I like so much the fog
If it was my pic, I think I post it in black and withe ....perhaps
cheer for this beautifull brrrrrr shot,

Hello Donna,
A fine early winter atmosphere has been captured!
The fog and the low light is typical for the season, and the view is well framed by the foreground tree!

:-) OK-

Hi Donna,
That thin layer of fresh snow surely did transfor the landscape to something very beautiful Lucky you to have family living in this wonderful corner of the USA. The still visable fog creates an even better mood. I like the framing a lot.

Dear Donna
Good to see you back
What an extreme cold scene you captured :o)
Perfect exposure ,composition and POV,
Superb shot,Welldone.


Hello Donna,
Great captured of evergreen trees with the fresh snow before it turn to full snow land!

Hello Donna

A Christmas card like scene.The pine trees covered in snow are wonderful.
I like the way Jack Frost and the snow have covered everything in white.
The pov and dof are well done.
The fog adds a nice element of atmosphere.
Excellent focus and sharpness.

Hi Donna,
Wonderful shot and you have captured the chilly environment pretty well. I like the way the snow has settled on the leaves and the lifting mist. Great view. Excellent POV to portray this 'brrrrrrr' scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Donna.
You managed to capture this wonderful scene perfectly and to reflect the state of late autumn nature mood with great taste and skill. Again and again I am impressed with your taste at subject and POV selection and framing. The tree branch on the top right corner of the image is so fine and decorates the image excellently. Bravo.

I really like this photo. It has a nice sense of depth and temperature. This is my first visit to your gallery. You have a nice variety of subjects and a good eye.

Hi Donna,
Very nice landscape covered in snow, Excellent POV. and great colors and sharp picture, Great shot very well done.
