very good subject. at first i thought it was b/w :D

Today's post is very contemplative and very good for a sunday. It's close to the place of yesterday's post, I remember the gigantic slide in the back ;-)
Thanks and greetings

Merhaba dear Hans...
verynice comp...and shot.. selamlar

ciao hans

your shot hir is wonderful i feel the cold.. this is excellent job...



Hallo Hans,
Dit is echt een winter foto! Erg mooie opname van het kerkhof in Spaarndam,zulke kerkhoven vindt je alleen maar in kleine dorpen, zo ook hier in Limburg.
En de wilg past daar mooi bij!

Beautiful work Hansie! Super sharp, despite the foggy surroundings! I love visiting graveyards too, wondering who these people were. The slight hint of color is very nice!

Another very beautiful winter scene. Very nice composition and once again the fog gives a very nice mood. I like the touch of color. Brrr it does look cold though. TFS

Olá Hans

Gosto muito do tratamento dado a imagem, traz uma certa leveza ao cenário...bonito trabalho.
Grande abraço,

Very beautiful winter scene. Very nice composition and fog gives a very nice mood. Well done.

HI Hans,

The tree's branches seem to be outstretched guarding the cemetery. The snow gives it a peaceful look. Almost like a blanket.... ok, so I do have strange thoughts. Freshly fallen snow to me gives me a feeling of peace.

Interesting shot Hans. Have a nice cup of warm Dutch cocoa to keep warm on these snowy days! Lisa

Hi Hans,
Very moody photo! The faded colors are so appropriated for the scene! Well composed image with the diagonal lines of tombs and this splendid willow looking like a umbrella to protect them.
My compliments! Annie

A beautiful impression of Winter Hans.The delicate branches of the Willow makes a fine background. Excellent!
Cheers, Pat.

This is what we call the dark days before christmas in all aspects Hans,very dramatic scenery.

Bijna zwart/wit
Ingetogen en sober zoals het hoort op die plek
In Nederland althans.
Mooi scherp

Looks dead cold to me.... brrrrrr... bring on the summer for our Hansie...lol.

Can see you took this last year... but bet your glad your leaving some of that winter behind.Love that willow in the background. good shot.


Hoi Hans,
Een erg mooie foto ondanks de wat sombere sfeer. de Treurwilg geeft het plaatje toch wel een erg rustige sfeer. Ik weet niet of andere het al hebben opgemerkt, maar de foto is onder belicht. de sneeuw is net iets te grijs. Dus ff nog iets meer oplichten met levels. Mocht je binnenkort met je Nikon sneeuw gaan fotograferen hou er dan rekening mee dat je camera bij dit soort foto's gaat onderbelichten. Dit moet je dus compenseren door over te belichten door of een langzamere sluitertijd of via de belichtings optie.

Hallo Hans,

Altijd weer indrukwekkend!
Prachtige compositie en heel mooie tinten. Mooi scherp.

groetjes, Marga

Een zeer koude foto!! Je maakt het kerkhof nog kouder en akeliger. Knappe compo.

Hi Hans,
This is a really nice winter capture. I love the center placement of the willow tree. I like the misty atmosphere giving this a very wintery look. Excellent shot.

hi hans, wow so cold and so white, neat shot,
have a great day,
