[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A misty morning, rimefrosty cold, and fog had just lifted. I startled some whitetail deer while taking this shot, but they would not let me get close enough, so I settled for this landscape to post.
I'll put the deer shot in the WS.

Hallo Otto,
Sehr eindrucksvolle Landschaft, hat sie doch fast etwas Geisterhaftes. Weiches schönes Licht und einen wundervollen Ausblick auf die fernen Hügel. Gratuliere

Hi Otto, This is a wonderful capture. The wish would be to see a tad more of the sky...it is a tight crop.

Good work,

regards, Kiran
Ps: try posting in trekearth as well.

Hi Otto,
You couldn't close to deers but this landscape worth the try!
A very beautiful view with wonderful colours and excellent composition.
TFS, José M.

hi otto, mystic valley...wonderful shot with
a great misty misterious atmosphere embedded in a beautiful landscape.
the ws-photo with the hiding deer is very nice, too.
well seen & done, thorsten.

Hi Otto,
A beautiful landscape scene. I like yor composition and framing. I would not want any more sky since it is so gray. Nice sense of depth and subtle colors of winter.

Hello Otto,
primordial landscape in beautyful harmony, very nice to see the morning light casting long frosty shadows, and showing the shapes of distant hills in a perfect way in the backlight.
Excellent image.
The deer shot looks great, too. I like their dark silhouette, the synchronous motion of both, and the snow covered branches are a very pleasing environment. Spring to come soon can be felt in spite of the cold.
Thank you! With best regards,

Nicely done, Otto. A bit stark looking, but that's an accurate representation of mid-March around here. I think you did a great job of recording it like that. Now it's time to get back under the bridge again and capture some green.

Bonjour Otto,
Excellent composition and supers shot with the fog on morning, beautiful colors and POV. well done.
