These picture has been taken yesterday forenoon after a snowy night carpet of 13 cm, the weather report had predicted this.
It was a extraordinarily morning everything white and virginal for look at.

The Weather.

About little things is so much talked about as the weather.
Especially in Belgium with its fluctuating character again, his reflections on current and expected weather for the order of the day.
We must of course be aware that the weather in a particular place on earth depends on many factors, such as geographical location, sea temperatures, currents, natural disasters, the influence of the sun and human impact. Weather is always a matter of cause and effect, within the sphere of influence of the Earth play continuously meteorological processes as necessary, under the influence of differences in temperature over land and sea surface high and low pressure areas are formed and air masses located at various heights move and flow patterns occur, by which weather forecasts can be made.

Très jolie composition hivernale avec ces arbres enneigés très bien éclairés qui contrastent joliment avec ce beau ciel bleu.

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Dans un large fauteuil, près du foyer béni, comme on peut voyager, l’hiver, à l’infini !
Manteau blanc immaculé ou presque, les arbres poudrés de neige, tout respire calme et tranquillité.
Une bien jolie réalisation.

Caio John,
Wonderful winter composition with great light management and detail. Bravo John!

Bonjour John
Une superbe image hivernale avec les arbres enneigés quji se détachent sur un beau ciel bleu. La luminosité donne toute son importance au paysage.
Bravo et bonne journée.


A lovely winter scene. Your composition is excellent. The undisturbed snow fills the foreground and the tall trees either side of the frame are well balanced, almost symmetrical. The blue sky overhead tops it off perfectly. Well done.


Dear John

Hello John!
Magnificent views of the winter full of snow, which I love.
Good POV and composition of photo, wonderful light and colors, excellent sharpness.
Have a nice day

Hi John

A very pretty scene and great composition. Hope your knee gets better soon.


Hello John
This is a scene that may be pleasant in most conditions, but is utterly transformed by the presence of the snow. Although it looks suitably cold, the sunlight on the trees is a welcome lift to the overall blue tones. Good work

Goeiemiddag John,

Een verse laag sneeuw en mooie zonneschijn, de ideale omstandigheden voor prachtige winterfoto's. En, uw resultaat mag getoond worden. Spijtig genoeg hebben we deze omstandigheden maar 1 of 2 dagen per winter in Vlaanderen,

Groeten, Rudi

Hi John
winter at its most beautiful and impressive! Glorious light and shadows make it so attractive. Executed perfectly as capturing a winter wonderland is not as straight forward as it looks. Well done!

Regards - Brian.

Hello John,

A beautiful winter scene you have captured here. I like all those frosted trees. The light and shadow are nice to see and the distance on the snow gives deepness. The sharpness is very good.

Best regards


Hi John,

The wideness au park is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the trees covered qith frosdt and snow. The reflection of the light on the snow is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi John,
Yes!!! Fantastic. An amazingly beautiful landscaping in winter season. AWESOME, like always any picture you posting. Love it. Thank you.

A beautiful photograph unravelling levels of blue into the white! Amazing!.... The cadre is perfect and the sharpness and clarity very good. The final effect is somehow emotional and gives a very peaceful and reassuring impression.

Hi John,
Very beautiful winter scene. I like the golden touch of the sunlight. Well captured.


Ola John ,

Bonjour John

Le lendemain d'une bordée de neige, alors qu'elle est encore toute blanche et que la lumière est aussi belle, il n'y a rien de plus beau que l'hiver servie sur un aussi beau plateau.



Bonjour John,
Par cette note, je commente non seulement cette prise qui est de bonne facture mais par la même l'ensemble de ta collection dont je suis admirateur et qui reste à mon sens de grande qualité.

TFS et très bonne journée.

Greetings from southern Spain.

Hi John,
a fantastic scene, very bucolic and caught finely, in that the landscape covered with snow and the light of the morning play a great aesthetic role, in a composition structured-well.
I like the nice contrast between the whiteness of the snow and the blue of the sky, under a splendid game of light and shades.
A beautiful work, my friend.

Hello John, what a marveous winter scene especially showing the place where you live.
Living in San Diego, the finest city in the US we don't see this kind of scenes at all. Today we have 20C here and in order to see something similar I have to drive 3-4 hours up in San Berbardino Mountains.
Beautiful winter postcard with amazing colors and shades from the sun's soft touch.
Untouched snow everywhere and a very peaceful natural scenery!
Warm regards,

Ciao John
luce fantastica su un panorama spettacolare.
La foto è composta magnificamente ed è presentata in modo elegante e piacevole.

A beautiful sunny winter scene, John - the light adds outstanding contrast to the snow covered branches of these trees. I like the distance here, and the amount of space given over at bottom to the snow - it adds a nice sense of space to the frame.

Hi John,

Fantastic winter wonderland image. Wow I love the bluish snow on the foreground, and hte speck of light on the power on the tree with really good contrast illuminated by the warm sun. the tracks lead us into the image. the couple s walking adds to the composition, but not too many people to make it busy. This give a peaceful atmosphere. Excellent quality, everything is pin sharp and great texture.

A beautifully taken classic winter scene John!

Hello John,

Great shot of snow.I like the trees covered with snow giving an extraordinary flavor to the whole scene.Very well done Sir.


Good Morning John,

A snowfall acts like a magic wand, changing everything to glistening white in a matter of moments.
A lovely composition.
The blue sky keeps a chill in the air but creates a super backcloth against which to view the frosted trees.
Fine light control has avoided any oe.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hello John,
Snow and light gives a high purity photo. A good blue light. Excellent quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Best regards

Hi John
yes, the bitter cold! certainly coming through on this one! what i actually enjoy most about the scene are the blue tones in the skyline. also, the striking light against the tree trunks, very nice indeed.
classic winter photo

Hello John

A classic winter's scene. Well composed. Well exposed too given that bright snow can sometimes play havoc with a camera's metering system.



Beautiful winter scene but it look so cold! I like the lighting with the foreground in the shadows. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi John,
Lovely winterlandscape well captured, I like the view of these snowy trees, good light and contrast, tfs.

H John,
A really beautiful winter image, and a perfect advertisement for the joy of snow :) here in Ireland, we rarely get to enjoy scenes such as this, so it's always a pleasure to see a capture of a beautiful snowy scene. A cold and beautiful capture. Thanks for sharing. I also loe your framing, it suits this picture perfectly well.
All the best

Dag John,
Aha, de eerste echte winterfoto van dit jaar van jou!

Hello John,
a magnificent wintry landscape in a very elegant simple composition with captivating depth and perspective. The point of view gives almost equal space to foreground and sky, the blue ambience is fantastic and the trees are outlined with superb sharpness in it.

I love the effect of the morning sun on this snow covered winterscape, excellent rendition of colors, lighting, shadows and contrast but importantly the cheery atmosphere it rendered. The warm tones adds the visual impact and surprisingly the blue sky adds alot to this fine shot, Congrats.

Dag John,
Prachtig plaat van dit winterlandschap, zo is de winter op zijn mooist. Ik hou ook van wandelen in de sneeuw met zulke mooie omstandigheden. Mooi hoe je de berijpte natuur hebt vastgelegd. Dit beeld straalt voor mij een hele fijne en rustige sfeer uit. Het wit van de sneeuw en het blauw van de lucht komen hier samen in perfecte harmonie. Heel mooie spel van licht en schaduw. Een heerlijk Vlaams tafereel.
Vele groeten vanuit besneeuwd Rijsel (en we zijn weer vertrokken voor een koude week met veel sneeuw !)

Hello John,

No, this is not the weather for riding a bicycle - it can be very dangerous when roads are very slippery. But I do hope that you make a quick recovery from the surgery to your knee - get well soon!

A beautiful winter scene with virginal snow still clinging to the tiniest branches of the trees and with lovely low angle light streaming across the snow covered ground and illuminating the trees beautifully against a clear blue sky.

Gorgeous colours and light, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

Hi John
The blue toning of the shade gives an extra cold mood to the frosty scene! Nice sharpness and textures.

Hi John, what a beautiful winter day you had! The photo is so bright and ful of sun even if the large part is in the shadow. The pristone fresh snow and branches of the trees look marvelous. Superb photo.
Warm regards

It was well worth the effort to get there and take such a fine photograph. Lovely perspective with the trees well framed and this is a typical winter image, fantastic John.

Hi John,
Winter at its best! An extraordinarily morning as you say with wonderful light and color tones, a perfect day for long walks in the parks! I like the frost in the trees and the tranquil mood from this morning, well done!
Have a nice day.

Hello John,
I almost missed this wonderful image! What a fantastic mood you have captured here. It is very well conveyed and felt by the viewer. The play of shadow and light is really fascinating. Excellent photo work, my compliments!
Warm regards

Hi John !!!

Hmmm, lovely not enough, it's super lovely and in blue tone. First time see winter season in such amazing setting. The 13 cm of fresh blanket turned the park into a wonderful playground. TFS !!!

Enjoy your Sunday !


Hello John,
Wonderful winter scene. The whole shot has an icy blue look, giving the impression of cold. I love the way you've captured the hues of the white snow as it changes colours from light to shade. The ladnscape is captured well as well. You've made good use of the lights and the elements present.
Have a nice week,

Hi John

A very peaceful and calm winter scenery, all in white the grass and the trees. Good that there was this long shadow covering most of the grass, that adds the spectrum of contrast to the shot, what makes it much more interesting. Well done

Warm regards

This may be one of my favorites in your collection John. The air must be fresh. The snow crunchy beneath one's feet, Nature's sounds of woods with snow fills the room ... and a winter orchestra plays. I can simply say .... I like this one ... nothing more.


Hi John,

this is a really beautiful winter photo. Congratulations!

Greetings from Sweden


namaste John,
this view is really wonderful. You got a nice frame with those two big trees standing in snow covered land. Great light and fine balanced colour tone. Enjoyed it a lot. Excellent one. Tfs.

Hello John,
this picture is really great. A symphony of blue and white. Thanks for sharing.

Hello John,
It is a lovely photo, but I am not in a hurry to get back to winter. I'd rather enjoy the summer and autumn first.
