Raindrops and dead leaves - taken a week ago before all of that lovely (?) white stuff descended upon us here.

I think this would have more punch if the exposure wasn't so dark. What does the histogram look like? If you brightened things up you might find that the water drops would begin to sparkle and that would add a lot of life to this photo. As it is now they are not noticeable except upon close examination. Just MHO. :)

Thanks, Paul, for the constructive comment - I did try bringing up the exposure in various stages but felt that it began to lose "atmosphere" without advantage as the droplets actually lost "sparkle" against the lighter background.

I would welcome similar comment from you - and others of course - on this one from the same time .... assuming, I hope, that 'isolated tree parts' are acceptable in a thread for 'trees' ??

That's a first class drop and tree-part. It works for me.

Another lonely tree - not quite as lonely as Chairman Bill's recent one but certainly a lot colder !

One of the compensations of winter is the silhouetting and simplification of scenes - or maybe I'm clutching at straws ?

Two more winter tree scenes - one framing a turgid semi-frozen creek and the other of one of the dead bark-stripped standing trunks that are not uncommon in this area.

I post to get your comments and criticisms and advice, etc., so I hope that these are sufficiently interesting to produce such response.

I really like #1. The lines of the creek bank, the reflection, and how it all comes together is very pleasing. Good job!

This morning's weather contrast ... frost against fog.

A sudden snowfall and a young tree approaches breaking point.
