Still browsing,
a snowy day on the beach in Latvia,
was still snowing,
must be no-cold temperatures, the snow was melting making little ice-bergs floating all over the sand.

tres joli cadre de noir et blanc
bon travail

What an atmosphere!

superb BW and compo.


Bonjour Anne-France! Une image pleine d'atmosphère. Ça sent la tranquilité et l'air pur! Une composition réussie, et un superbe éclairage. Bravo!

A la limite de l'imprudence, pourrait-on croire.
Bonne journée.

I like wintershots
this is a really a very good b/w picture
i like snow very much but here in south-africa *_*
good composition and excellent DOF

Beautiful and timeless with the black and white. Great POV with the creek going up the vertical photo and the shoe-prints too! The three small figures in the background add a perfect touch!

feeling like fron an old Latvian movie called "in the shadow of death" where some men were floating on a piece of ice in the middle of sea.. especially have this feeling because of the b&w choice in this photo.

well captured, AnneFrance!
it's not snowing yet, but well... it will be... soon! :)

Hi Anne,
Great B&W composition. The footsteps in the snow makes a riddle of this posting. Good lighting and an interesting POV. Very well done and TFS!

:) tomorrow!

As promised...

Une photo très intéressante Anne France! Atmosphère étrange, comme hors du temps. Les personnages semblent perdus dans un monde irréel avec ces glaces se détachant et la brume au loin..

Very nice Abstract shot.
Wonderful POV and Comp.

ah, great one, congratulations!
excellent composition, full of storys... very good one!


Brrr!! A great cold sensation!!! Brava Anne!

I presume there is pratically no water under... I did something in the style in the begin of that spring. I like to see here the cracks who let imagine they can fall in water in any time or going at large!
J'en oublie mon Francais!

Hi Anne,
Lots of things can be enjoyed here. The step path, the peoples and the melting snow.
Very good.

Bonjour Anne France,
La composition de ta photo me plaît beaucoup, avec ces pas dans la neige et les personnages au loin. Félicitations!
Je trouve néanmoins que l'horizon penche un peu. J'aurai pour ma part redressé un peu l'image.

A perfect B&W composition! The lines created by foodsteps and cracks nicely leed the eye into this endless image. Figures in BG add a nice touch to this. Thanks for sharing it!

~Take care!~

great perspective, using foreground to guide the viewer's eye towards the people standing on the horizon with bird overhead
