C'est souvent un moment très très froid quand le soleil se lève dans le givre et la brume au bord 'un petit canal, l'avantage c'est qu'il y a peu de monde.
Belle journée

Bonjour, cher Nicolas,
Poussières d'hiver délivrant une image de toute beauté.
L'image est fort belle.

Bonjour Nicolas,

Effectivement, on sait qu'il fait froid lorsque la rivière fume.Ici, J'aime particulièrement cette petite courbe douce qui pousse le regard vers le ciel jaune.



Bonjour Nicolas,

The cold atmosphere is very well collected in your photograph, it does look cold with the cool colours and the mist rising from the canal.
The rising sun, illuminating the sky with gold, makes a great b/g against which to frame the mist and the naked trees.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Nicolas,
The early morning light is sublime and you have captured it beautifully. The composition is well considered using the curve of the canal to draw the viewer into the image. I like very much the tracery wrought by the bare branches of the trees set against the morning sky. A true delight.

ciao Nicolas,
belle image diaphane, elegant,
ciao, Giacomo

Superb sunlight at the end of the road. A great attractive winter scene. Well taken.


Hello Nicolas,
Yes, we can see from the mist rising over the narrow canal that it is freezing cold. But the colours of dawn in the sky and the blue tones of the shady hillside are beautiful. The trees create wonderful silhouettes against the sky. I am glad you went out to take this photo for us in spite of the bitterly cold weather.
Kind regards,

Witaj Nico!
Wspania³y zimowy obraz.
Ciekawe miejsce.
Znakomita kompozycja i kadr.
¦wiat³o i kolorystyka stworzy³y niepowtarzaln± atmosferê.
Podoba siê.
Mi³ego popo³udnia.

Hello Nicolas

A thoroughly apt title! Even the dawning sun fails to add any real warmth to the scene. I wonder if you shoot RAW and "develop" your images at 16 bits depth? There seems to be some banding in the sky...



Bonjour Nicolas, a very cold scene with the rising sun creating a beautiful sky.
Trees in silhouette against the sloping hillside, lovely.
Regards Jean.

Hi Nicolas
you do very well with these landscape type of scenes, this is another strong atmospheric example. I like the downslope angle of the hillsides and the snow ice covering all the branches. nice touch of orange warmth as well

Hi Nicou,
Light is quite beautiful on this one. Yellow and blue create intensive contrast, and frosty trees are always lovely. Diagonal slope makes excellent composition.

Hi Nicolas,
The lines leading towards the mist and the sunlight are great. A perfect position for the shot.



Bonjour Nicolas
Looking at this beautiful picture of the small road between the little canal and the wooded hill you can easily imagine that it must be very cold when you created this splendid image.
Well done. Have a nice day, groet Rob

Hello Nicolas, I wonder what it means "very cold". I remember the times when it was quite normql to have minus 20 degrees. Now minus 2 seems cold. Now winter pictures. instead of preparing Chritmas you went with the camera. Thanks for sharing.

Kind regrads MAlgo

Ciao Nicolas
il senso del freddo è molto forte e passa anche attraverso la tua foto, sembra di sentirlo anche dal monitor.
Bella la prospettiva che ci accompagna verso il sole.

Hello Nico
Bel effet de brume et de lumière, la couleur du soleil donne un peu de chaleur a cet instant glacial
Belle journée

Bonjour Nicolas,

A beautiful early morning winter scene as the sunlight streams through the cold mist above fresh snow. A well composed photograph in which the line of trees and the track lead the eye toward the sunrise.


Kind Regards,


Salut Nicolas,
Bien capturée ces lumières chaudes qui contrastent avec l'atmosphère plutôt froide de ce paysage enneigé, boneffet avec la courbe de la route.

Great pov and a very atmospheric picture. It took me a while to decide whether this is a road or a river. The coldness and the blue tones are superb here. Well timed, well taken & congratulations again, dear Nicolas.

Bonjour Nicolas

It certainly looks very cold! Nice warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue grey tints. Good sharpness and well composed. Tfs!

Hi Nicolas
Great timing with that magical light on winter morning and lovely playing with settings on camera. Beautiful glow of dawn superbly shot, Congrats.
Best regards

Hello Nicolas,
I like the diagonal line from the hill and the beautiful hues of the sky. The naked trees look like lacework against the sky.
