Snowy pine

A number of visitors (I suspect from the sunny south and non-snowy parts of the UK) have commented on the snow photo I posted yesterday. Being one who is eager to please, I'm following up with this snow-draped conifer, taken while returning home from having taken the previous photo. It was a bright sunny morning after a heavy snow and old man moon put in an appearance as well.

Some vignetting in PhotoShop plus a little tweaking to help bring out Mr. Moon. An 81B filter was used to warm up the sky and tree a bit as well.

That's beautiful.
The light, the moon, the colours, the composition. I feel like I'm there.
I want to be naughty and shake all the snow off the tree!!

Wonderful composition. The vignetting effect is subtle, yet effective. Nice to be seeing some outdoor shots for a change, James. And thanks for the link to Face Off :)

Very cool shot. I really like the composition.

Excellent shots both todays and yesterdays. Would be nice to see some snow in the 'non-snowy South of the UK!' ;-)

Incredible! I love your photos!

snoo, thanks for the kind words. I know what you mean about wanting to shake the tree. You and empress baggie would hit it off, no doubt.

engloy, thank you. Face Off is a great photo.

Thanks, Otto!

philb, thanks, also. I've enjoyed the lake and dock photos you posted last week.

empress, I thank you as well.
