[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The winter in the Netherlands is composed of 1 week snow till now on.

So, when there was snow, everybody went out to see how Nature was changed. This photo shows how our park did change its dress.

It is a simple spot, but somehow I like this image.

Thanks for watching.

(I wonder what people living in deserts do think of this.:)

Bonsoir Joop,
Très jolie vue que ce parc sous la neige.
Cet hiver a permis de faire quelques belles photos avec neige et soleil.
Celle ci est particulièrement réussie.

A nice Winter shot, Joop adorned with the appropriate light. I like the light blue cast on the snow and the beautiful group of trees.
A nice frozen park nicely captured with such sharpness and neatness.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Love the winter mood you have got here, Joop!

Superb clarity and nice charm and mood have been shown in this lovely scenic view.
The sharpness and POV are well done, and colors are natural.
An ideal blue sky in addition to the bridge at far do add to the overall beauty of the scene IMO.

Thanks and regards,

Ciao Joop, nature is a fantastic artist and you are a great photographer, fascinating frozen composition, great artwork, excellent sharpness, fine details, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

You were supposed to send me snow! Instead you sent rain and wind today! It is simple but effective composition. Good play with light and shadows to create depth. Great dof with nice contrast. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Joop...excellent winter shot...wonderful tones and light. Very artistic photo.

Hi Joop,you certainly captured "Old Man Winter" with this blanket of white.
The only suggestion I can make, would be,if possible,to be at this location when the light makes the hoar frost glisten among the tree branches,but if that light,or degree of coldness is not there,there is not much chance of capturing that.

Good evening Joop,

Beautiful winter scene, at home I have not had snow.
Wonderful views from sun and shade is exquisite.
The colors are soft enjoy reading this pretty postcard.
Well done for this.
I greet you warmly.

Bom dia Joop
I like the luminosity of your composition, the good sharpness and specialy the white and clean atmosphere.
I think people of deser would love to be even once in a desert of snow. In heart people need beauty to be kind.
um abraço
