    One of the rarest sights here in winter (and it only happened in spring!):

    Taken on Tuesday morning at about 10:45h.
    (By 12, most of the snow was gone again).

    very, very nice, Corinna! It's like a pencil drawing. Is it DOF or the falling snow that makes the tree in the back more fuzzy? Either way; I like it. :thumbup:

    That's falling snow. It was snowing madly when I took this photo and I really began to fear for the camera, so I quickly jumped back into the car after this (the snow was quite wet, what with the temperatures being a little above freezing point, actually).

    Of those I took on that trip (and during that particular snow storm), I like this best because of it's resemblance with a drawing. :D

    Not yet, no.
    Actually I was a little intrigued by the reduction of all the colours to WHITE and "a bit", so I dropped the idea of converting it. But I might try to do so - if only just for fun. :D

    Just one other from the trip.
    If Alison were still coming, she'd maybe recognise that tree of mine, I go photograph this one and the row of trees behind it quite often and already have quite a collection of photos of this very tree, only was it hardly to be seen in all the snow falling at the time (Tuesday morning at about 10:40h):

    The spots in the photo are not dirt on the sensor. They are snow flakes in the air :D.

    I like the first shot, but the second is totally killer- If could make a suggestion on it though, crop off the dark part on the bottom. It's so dream-like without it.

    As you wish ;)

    I created a lighter frame, too. My standard frame is actually too heavy for these, I think.

    Nicely shot, Corinna! I agree that the trees and stalks in the first one look like they were sketched with a pencil...nice effect. I like the crop of the second shot, and the way the trees vanish off into the snow.

    Oh yeah! Now that looks like a pencil drawing to me. The stuff I used to do when I was into it.

    the first one is indeed nice, but the cropped one is wicked. Looks really good and the frame works better for me too :)

    Yep, that's present-day northwestern Europe for you. Here it was mostly sleet instead of snow, but I wish I'd have taken more pictures anyway.

    Very nice photos BTW. Do you have any more?
