Both very fine images, especially the first one.

Number two for me: classic.

The second image is a beauty. Where was this taken?

They're both quite lovely.
I wish I could get up as early as you do, but we seldom get light that night here in the morning.

I’ll tell you how the Sun rose —

A Ribbon at a time —

The Steeples swam in Amethyst —

The news, like Squirrels, ran —

The Hills untied their Bonnets —

The Bobolinks — begun —

Then I said softly to myself —

“That must have been the Sun”!

But how he set — I know not —

There seemed a purple stile

That little Yellow boys and girls

Were climbing all the while —

Till when they reached the other side,

A Dominie in Gray —

Put gently up the evening Bars —

And led the flock away —


That's Emily Dickinson. Today is her birthday.  :D

Thumbs up on both photos, #2 in particular.

Thanks for that reminder, Dave.
Happy Birthday, Emily!

Both wonderful captures - made me shiver in sympathy (I live in sunny and hot Queensland, Australia).
If I had to choose I would go with #2 as a better composition.

No. 2 is both beautiful and classical. Well done.

Beautiful results for a morning stroll. I especially like the second one but the first shot is also pleasing with the frost that outlines the trail.

I apologize for being late to the party, but I too like the second one, and greatly appreciate the poem. Cheers!

I'm also a fan of them both. As for elements, backlit frosty grass is a favorite. But compositionally I prefer the second. Lots to like either way.

Excellent management of the difficult against-sun situation, and very good for my tastes.
all the best,
