Stand Alone

Posted by Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 24 January 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Another winter austerity image, in which fog and snowfall combine to create minimalist visuals.

Nikon D7200 1/2000 second F/8.0 ISO 360 93 mm (35mm equiv.)

@Devi: Thank you, Devi.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

I love this kind of minimalist composition ! superb winter mood !

@Anna Cherer: The urban part of me craves these open spaces, and after three weeks in the small town atmosphere I also enjoy the return to big city excitement and high speed. Thanks a lot, Anna.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Nice poetic shot. I like it.

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Beautiful composition, Rick and once again I imagine this would make a wonderful framed print.

@Stephen: Very kind of you and thanks a lot, Stephen. I have yet to print or frame or hang any of my images, but one day I will get around to selecting a few favourites from each season.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

What a beautiful atmosphere in this image.

@Ruthiebear: Thanks, Ruthie.

Joyce from Montana, United States

Easy on the mind and feelings, so plain, lonely even. Real. Winter asks us to go within.

Frankly I'm tired of these around here. 20 degrees it seems forever every morning on the thermometer.

24 Jan 2018 2:18pm

@Joyce: Thanks for the feedback, and I hear you Joyce. We haven't reached that "ugh, get it over with" feeling just yet, due to a strange and dynamic winter that is giving us sudden warm spells and periods of no snowfall... check with me in a month and you'll have total commiseration !

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

This is just beautiful. I love lone trees. There seems to be a strength in them that they stand alone. This winter scene certainly projects a feeling of bitter cold and overcast days that we see so often this time of year.

24 Jan 2018 5:02pm

@Elaine Hancock: Thank you very much for your detailed and articulate feedback, Elaine.

omid from mashhad, Iran

@omid: Thanks a lot, omid.

Gérard from Allauch, France

This melancholic quoted also brings the peace of mind

24 Jan 2018 5:30pm

@Gérard: I agree fully. Thanks.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A cold and lonely atmosphere with very poetic tints...

24 Jan 2018 5:54pm

@Adela Fonts: Thanks very much, Adela. I loved your image for today.

MAU from Els Poblets, Spain

Sencillamente una buenísima foto.

24 Jan 2018 6:03pm

@MAU: Thanks !

franz from Baden, Austria

Your words sum up the essence of this charming image perfectly ... austere, minimal - and very appealing!

24 Jan 2018 6:18pm

@franz: In these times of heightened and constant stimuli, most of it synthetic in origin, I find this type of scenery and experience to be almost medicine for my soul. Heartfelt thanks, sir franz.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

The fog works well here to single out this well-shaped tree with its dense network of branches!! Great capture which evokes a lot of tranquility here as well.

24 Jan 2018 6:44pm

@Steven: I like that you commented on the shape of the canopy; something that caught my eye right away. Thanks.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

An excellent art piece. The atmosphere here definitely says winter.

24 Jan 2018 7:12pm

@Steve Rice: The lack of colour needn't mean a lack of beauty. My thanks, Steve.

By Marie from Entre montagnes et Bretagne, France

I like this atmosphere

k@ from Paris, France

Watched all those I missed and I stop by here : love the mood, the tones, the silence too. I can relate to this positive solitude and feeling of being part of a larger than us dimension !
