I can feel the cold in all the pictures posted, reminds me of the Ice Storm we went through once (once was enough) in Louisiana. My familyis from Huntington Beach, CA and the storm hit us the second month we were in the new house, it was cold. Your pictures bring back all the shivers.

Very good shots! I could only wish I was there. I hope you don't mind but I took the liberty to have some cs3 fun and gave it a panoramic crop.

I have only imagined this kind of shot but have not found it yet around these parts yet.

Great edit! I was imagining the same effect but don't know how to make it happen in PS. Thanks for taking a look.

if you have cs3 or 2 (not sure of elements), first crop your panoramic size then add defuse glow, (mode)greyscale, then (mode) duotone the colors in to your liking.

Very much liked the dignty in all three pictures. But #2, which looks like a selective colour job at first sight, is really special, IMO

Btw, I also appreciated how you managed to exploitthose difficult times, which can make great subject for photography!

Hi Drew,

Great photos, all of them. Where in Oklahoma were these photos taken? (not so near Arizona, I assume!?)

Romania, where my in-laws live has also had a spell of cold weather. I think I heard on the news that there were a number of problems in the US where ice caused power lines to break, and trees to fall. (is that what happened in photo 2?)

I particularly like photo 3 - and I think Bynx's idea is great... but maybe if that place is too far from your home, will you be able to get there to capture the other 3 seasons?

The simplicity of the tree, the mist and the background forest all come together very well imho.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

edit - was the hay ruined by the ice?
