  1. Well said. It’s the Zen —– Why ? = nature has no intention, and your camera
    seemed to have no intention too. It’s just there, as we happen to be here.
    ( Hence, you clicked there and I’m looking its photos here. 🙂 )

  2. Muffled sound and clean air.. beautiful.. I love minimalism.. Snow can be so photogenic with the right eye which you have Karen..
    We seem to have endless grey skies, rain and gloominess here right now!

    1. Carla, the horizon was sort of glowing for a few minutes. I don’t think I really caught the essence of it. Light is just so fleeting sometimes! Thanks for your comments.

  3. I love these compositions – they emphasise the trees’ vulnerability and in a few of the shots the trees seem to be trying desperate for our attention – creating a sort of bittersweet comedy. Great shots, Karen.

  4. Stark and beautiful. I’m desperate to take some snow pictures – all we have is greyness. It seems so dark all the time. I would love for some crisp, white snow to reflect the light! Still I’ll try to make the grey work for me for now 🙂

  5. Bonsoir Karen ,

    Pas un Seul cheveux Blanc , n’apparaît en Lisière ,
    Des Yeux du Roi Hiver , se Jouant des Fils du Temps ,
    Ses Bras ceignent le Vent , enveloppant la Lumière ,
    De son Humeur Légère , sur le Seuil du Vivant .

  6. Some of those remind me of the painting you have… I think the title is ‘pay day’ or ‘pension cheque’ ….

  7. Very beautiful and peaceful. I always find it hard to get the white balance right in shots like these, but you always do it so well.

  8. AH, Just lovely. I think this is my favourite time of year to be out with a camera, or to draw. There’s a stark simplicity to space and line and form that allows real breathing space – moments to stop and really see properly. Undistracting and undistracted.

  9. The first one is my favorite, cause it made me surprised. I mean it’s surprising to see those things dramaticly coming up from the left side.

    1. Hi Hugo,
      Surprise is a nice reaction; with all the images out there in the world, to be able to surprise someone is lovely.
      It is a sumac tree pictured here – I love the reaching form.
      Thanks for your comment,
      Karen
