Ice had only recently formed on this pond and there had not yet been any snow. Canon 10D using a sigma 10-20mm lens.

I really like this picture, especially the two strokes in the ice from the left to the sun. Not to mention the sky---

(I would suggest cropping a cople of centimeters from the bottom, thus enhancing the two strokes (?) on the ice. Why not 16:9 aspect ratio?)

I suppose you can recommend the Sigma wide angle lens, given the good result on this picture

Thanks for the comment and suggestion. I've cropped the image at 16:9 and taken a bit off the bottom. Looks good but I still like the 1st shot as well as it takes advantage of the wide angle and gives a foreground perspective.
All the best,

Yes, you are right. If the ice would have been thicker you would perhaps like to go ice-skating. The first picture shows that. It brings you closer to the ice. Nice pictures, especially the first one

That's undoubtedly a beautiful image

You couldsave some more of the sky detail from the highlight area with the Highlight/ Shadow tool at PS, which would not hurt, IMO

Great shot Joe. The composition gives a great sense of a big wide land. I prefer your 16:9 cropped version.
