    Just so you get an impression of what things look like around me these days...

    All these first four were taken right against the sun, into the haze of a frosty morning, whereas I turned the other way and photographed with the sun in my back here:

    Of course, what little blue there was in the sky is much better to be seen with the sun in my back!

    But it also looked nice in the stretches of wood...

    But I must admit that I have seen MUCH better light-streaks-in-the-wood-photos on here taken by others :oops: ...

    And a last stunned look...

    ... and that was it.

    Other than that I seem to have photographed fireworks, fireworks and only fireworks of late...

    Here I was thinking they were good, then I saw the last three which really blew me away! Love the colours.

    Beautiful series, Corinna! Great to see the countryside (fond memories!). I especially like #4 (love the lone tree in the top right, and the diagonal angle of the frosty grasses in the foreground) and #6 (breathtaking shot!)

    Thanks so much for all your nice comments ... and you all really like 6 so much? And there I was thinking that others can do this EVER SO MUCH BETTER than I can...! Really. (Am still thinking so!)

    I tried to work with leading lines here, or areas, or so, hoping to create some depth, not sure if I succeeded?

    #6 is breathtaking.

    My only critique would be with #1. The horizon feels a bit too high.

    Oh thanks all! :oops:

    And this when I just went out to break out of my photography lethargy that crept upon me with winter approaching... :blushing:

    #6 is the best by far so far as I am concerned. Love the light coming through the trees.
