One can only appreciate this image to its best when you open the thumbnail. What a picture. This is beautiful - seeing the trees all covered in frost is so fabulous! It is great to look at all the patterns and great frozen cold colours. Fascinating indeed, Markus. I really like the composition with blotches of blue sky in between for contrast. Perfect technical implementation and overall display. Thanks for sharing.

This is wonderful Markus. It is so unique that I noticed it right away in the gallery and was really pleased upon opening it. The white laciness of the foreground and blue behind is so pretty. I like that there are only three elements: white lace, blue sky, brown vertical tree trunks. I love it.

You are a master of capturing what most of us admire quickly without going into the real beauty.
While we are intent on photographing species in the best way your pictures show the effects of nature, which is why you add to the diversity of TN so well.
A beautiful composition! I like how the frosted branches look like feather-down over the strict straightness of the tree trunks, while the varied blue of the sky adds depth to the image.
Well done Markus and thanks for delighting us with this breath of fresh air!

Hello Markus !
Wow, that is absolutey wonderful ! I love the combination of cold frost and sunny light, and the contrast between the white frost and the vivid blue patches of sky we see behind the trees. All of this makes an outstanding picture, a real pleasure for the eye. Very well done !

Bei Euch ist der Himmel blauer als bei uns! Der Reif ist im Moment allgegenwärtig und verzaubert die Landschaften, hier aber hat die Sonne ziemlich Mühe sich durchzusetzten. Du zeigst uns ein Bild das fast unwirklich anmutet, aber doch Deinem Auge nicht entgleitet ist. Sehr schönes Tor zu einem Wintermärchen.

Very well framed. I have a few of these, but my eyes grow weary of white....unless it comes from another photographer...The framing and your special eye are what it is about here Markus...Well done!

Destacaría sin duda el bonito trabajo realizado con el color y el oportuno azul del fondo, ya que sin él la foto perdería mucho. He llegado a pensar que la fotografía era un reflejo.
Un abrazo Markus: Josep Ignasi.

splendido scorcio invernale con il fascino degli alberi ricoperti di galaverna, eccellenti POV e composizione, molto bello l'azzurro del cielo che s'intravede fra la vegetazione che crea un bellissimo contrasto con il candore della neve, i diversi rami danno un buon effetto dinamico all'immagine.

Wonderfull winter scene with the clear blue sky very nicely framed by the frost-covered branches. I like the contrasting dark and straight tree trunks too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

This is an amazing picture of the frost-laden trees, Markus.
The impression it gives is that of spring when some trees are aglow with fresh blossoms on them. This is the delusion of the most pleasant kind.
The blue sky(?) seen through the branches looks heavenly, literally!
Great shot, my friend, and thanks for sharing it.

You have captured natures beauty so well here Markus, The frost covered branches in the foreground, the stark tree trunks in the middle and that wonderful blue sky in the background. All the elements coming together perfectly, thank you Markus.

So very, very well seen Markus, once again you reveal the inner artist in yourself and remind us off the much needed artistic contribution you make to TN. Beautiful.

Your images are always a delight for me and this is another addition to your already amazing gallery. Very pleasing for the eyes and it really does send shivers down ones back. Superb lighting and exposure handling and that blue BG looks fantastic. Great composition.

What an amazing greetings holyday card. I am impressed a lot. All is superb. Amazing silver pattern of the tree branches, wonderful rich blue sky and impressive trunks of the trees. Bravo. Perfect work.

I almost missed this one from you, my friend!
Frost is one of the most photogenic elements in the winter season and i missed it terribly! We had it for about 2-3 days back in December, but i had to go to Hungary and didn't take any shots...i'm so sad about that...Anyway, at least you got some beautiful photos and i'm happy to see them here.
This one is lovely and exploits the natural and superb contrast between the frost and the blue sky. The result is very attractive, especially when it's bordered by some thick vertical lines that also seem to be parallel with each other. A balance between geometry and mosaic, very well seen and captured by you.
Bravo and TFS

a lovely shot indeed. i like the way the snowy white branches coiled up together and transform into artistic splashes of pattern. The blue sky gives an effective background, and the brownish trunks break into graphical patterns.
Excellent eyes in spotting the beuaty and brilliant presentation so that others could experience the same.

Wow Markus, talk about natural framing. These frost covered branches and twigs have framed the trunks and blue sky in a really marvelous way. And of course your trained eye saw it and made it into this wonderful photo. Its especially beautiful for its feel of depth. It really got that 3D effect to it. And that, I think, makes this photo even more special. So many photos that are related to yours appear flat but you got that wonderful feel of depth in it. I also love the crips feel of winter in it and the luminous quality.

I agree so much with your notes, cold weather have good sides... This is magical picture showing us the beauty of frost in all its glory! The blue background makes those branches stand out nicely with excellent details and exposure. Beautifully done!

beschämt stelle ich fest, dass Du weitere Kunstwerke präsentierst, ohne dass ich sie zur Kenntnis nehme. Zu diesem Bild gibt es nichts hinzuzufügen, was nicht schon andere vor mir gesagt haben. Pierrafortscha ist immer wieder für ein Photosujet gut!
Herzlich grüsst Dich
