Unusual heavy snowfall here makes car travel too exciting so a walk in the fresh snow instead. I liked the trees with fresh snow still clinging and the zig zagging fence holds it all together. I waited in the cold until the bland snow laden sky started to show some detail and have processed it to give just a hint of detail. I may try and get a little detail into the dark trunks but am stopping before I make a mess of the processing. It may be tricky to print and retain detail but could be worth the effort. Ken

Don't touch a thing Ken, as I think you have totally nailed it with this version.

Beautiful.

Very nice minimalist image.  Would look great as a large print.

I love it I would also like it without the left end trees but THREE is THREE

Thanks all for taking the time to comment. I would love it if the scrubby trees at the far left beyond the 2 trees were not there. I could clone them out but probably will not. When I crop it just after the left most main tree that tree just looks too close to the edge. Chainsaw? Ken

Don't even think about a crop! It's a wonderful image as is.  :)

Nice image Ken - only way to make determination about possible processing options is to print it and look at it - if that's end goal. /B

Leave them. They don't matter. It's just fine as it is.

Todays forecast was for sunshine and snow showers but it has turned into gale force winds, driving snow and flat light. These were taken during light snow, I did try and get shots with the wind whipping the lying snow into clouds of flying powder but I either missed it or I had an image of near whiteout with watermarks on the lens. I did manage a few though. Ken

I like the first of these new ones a lot. Clear, simple, effective. Very well done.

I want to like the second a lot. The split toning effect on the subject trees looks wonderful! Unfortunately the background trees distract me, reducing the power of the trees you focus on.

The third one also lacks the clarity that your initial image and the first one in the new set have so well achieved. They set such a high bar it is hard for the others to work with them...

Your persistence in the bad weather is being nicely rewarded!
