Default Frozen Coast anticipating spring-weather:

The weekend-cottages are neglected and are all alone during the long winter. The lone small-boat is still tied up at it's wooden-dock, having miraculously survived the load of several snow-falls.

The actual coastline is difficult to spot because the deep and mainly undisturbed snow is a great leveler, erasing the hard shore-line. It stretches along the tree-line, where the 3 wooden-docks are and outward, and widens way out there. Standing on a 6' top of a small island (I had to wade knee-deep in snow to get there) I have a better view all the way out to the other side of the coast.

I see places I know so well and long for, when fishing there in the summer. The total silence is in sharp contrast to the place otherwise so buisy with tourists and boats in the summer.

On the way home, I met some ice-fishers and they told me the ice is approx. 14" thick...mind you, that was at the beginning of March.

I like it Walter, nice winter scene, that boat makes me laugh. Did you check the cooler for beer?

Another classic Walter snow picture. You are like a machine in over drive the way you crank these nice photographs out. However, you have entered the critique folder and I must find fault with your photograph. I do not like the white pole (Ha Ha). Just kidding.

As Bynx said, "your photos are always picture perfect"

I'll add that you have a keen ability to compose a photograph that conveys the conditions that you experienced when taking it.
The first image is just 'perfect'. The clouds in the sky and snow on the trees really reinforce the feeling of cold. It looks cold, isolated and yet at the same time, very serene.

I'm getting cold just looking at it.
thanx for posting.

Zig

I really like the first photo. The yellow of the cottages (?) is just the right shade to go with the gray sky and snow. After all the wonderful images posted over the winter you certainly deserve some warmer shooting weather.

Walter, this is a great shot. i like the way you used different diagonal lines in the composition, you have the diagonal of the shoreline, then meeting the line from the treeline converging on the right hand side of the frame. this intersection is played up by the pano format, and the placement of the boat and the far dock give it interest.

if anything it may be a little tight on the left with the cottage, but without seeing whats beyond it i dont know.
