  1. I like these little floating islands of snow you've captured (ok, I don't like snow, but I do like the shot!)

  2. Winter in the midwest can be very trying, but it is also very beautiful. You have captured that beauty in this image.

  8. Yep ... love the reflections in the shiny water, and the meandering shape of the creek is great fun.

  9. The browns of the trees really show well against the white snow. I think you do have the white balance nailed on this!

  11. Nice how you were able to capture the glasslike surface of the water without any distractions in the foreground. Liquid water in such a wintry setting always looks a bit magical.

  12. The islands of snow make this almost an abstract. I love the warm brown trees and their implied strength holding up all that snow.
