    The same river that also floods the meadows around the old mill floods all the meadows to its left and right these days (which is ok, they are there to be flooded):

    Signs of winter? None.
    Good light for pleasing colours? None.

    I worked to get to the mood that Djengizz created in his "Gray" pictures, but did not get there, so I chose this path, trying to bring out what little colour there still is ... but I feel that some would do well with Djegizz's treatment, too.

    Very beautiful, the first and the last ones are my faves. The last one really guides your eye snaking along the edge of the pool through the picture, and the first one is so nicely framed. I have a feeling that they will soon be a good place to go skating.

    Very nice Pictures!
    My favorit is the second. The barbwire is a fine eye-catcher :thumbup:
    When I watch these pictures, I remember a movie called "hard rain" :D

    After I have seen your work on your site, Sebastian, I feel particularly honoured by your favourable comment.

    Thank you so all :hugs:

    Chris, the "tree house" actually is a construction set up by hunters all over the area (you see them everywhere, in all shapes and sizes, built into trees like here or built as "detached" structures on the side of the fields), so they can lurk for deer coming past up there and shoot them. And normally all the "lake" you see here is meadow, in fact (as the title is saying, of course, silly me).

    And I could not leave Photo 3 (and its colour :biggrin: ) untaken, you see ;) ;) ;)????

    Thanks, Jason.
    Yes, well, living on some sort of "drained swamp" does mean we get a lot of water - almost at all times of the year. We have a draining pump in the garden that keeps the cellar walls clear of too much underground water, else we'd have a damp cellar all year round ... But right now, what with all the heavy rain we've had of late, there is more than plenty there.
