Belle journée

Bonjour, cher Nicolas,
C’est curieux comme la nature a un don naturel pour transformer ce qui nous entoure en sculpture étonnante.
Magicien de la photo !

Bonjour Nicolas,

This is Nature at her creative best!
The fountain resembles a strange figure with crystal head and clasped hands.
The contrasts of sunlight and shadows have been well captured, adding to the 3D effect of the sculpture.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Nicolas,

The natural ice formation resembles an alien wearing a fur coat with regal lapels! Good exposure on the highlights. If you get them right everything else falls into place. Tfs!

Nice winter detail. It's amazing how nature works sometimes in an artistic way. Well seen.


Hello Nicolas,
The frozen fountain makes a fascinating focal point. You have captured the light and the glistening ice perfectly. Bravo!

Bonjour Nicolas,

C'est u peu pareil chez nous en ce moment, mais c'est vraiment trop froid pour sortir. La batterie tombe dans le rouge trop rapidement. Le blanc est de toute beauté.



Hello Nicolas,
You have cooperated with Nature to create a most interesting and amusing sculpture. It is beautifully "designed" and very inspiring to my imagination.
Kind regards,

It was a talented sculptor - the frost.
A subject like from a fairy tale, simply great
regards Ryszard

Bonjour Nicolas, an excellent close up which allows us to let our imaginations go wild!
The sharpness is amazing.
I love the blurry background, with what I think might be tree branches?
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.

Salut Nicolas
c est une composition originale
comme toujours ici nous voyons
une sculpture etonnante

Ciao Nicolas
scultura insolita, le mani della natura hanno lavorato con fantasia.
Buona Epifania

Bonjour Nico,

This is wonderful captured, the frozen fountain.
Also, the area is nice photographed.
Composition and presentation are excellent
Very well done, TFS.


Hi Nicolas
Superb selective focusing and a wonderful frame filler of frozen water from the fountain producing an ice sculpture image! I love how the light shines through with different colour tones coming through. A wonderfully composed image and well presented.

Brrrrr....Come on Summer, I've had enough of being cold ......

Best regards

Ciao Nicou, freddino eh, magnifica fontana ghiacciata, ottima nitidezza e splendida luce, bravo, ciao Silvio

A wonderful freeze, Nicolas, the water gave the Fontana a marvelous pattern when the water became ice.
Superbly taken picture,

Hello Nicolas,
Sometimes, Mother Nature is a talented sculptor. Well seen and rendered. I like the blurred background, too.
