Six

Really odd and misty and rainy and snowy day today.

I'm just glad it's Friday, even though I seriously dislike the weather.
So beautiful I love the b&w & Comp!

Very cool in BW. Agree about weather. Sub zero here, can't get out to take pictures.

@farrah Thank you so much! I thought the (over-the-top) b&w worked nicely, bringing the much needed brightness to the shot. It was soooo grey coming out of the camera. ;)
@wadazomo We're not even subzero (Celsius) at the moment, having some sort of a warm spell. I don't mind freezing temperatures and proper winter, but this is rather depressing in January...

@joa We have had Winter. Can we move on to Spring now ?:)
posted January 4th, 2013  
@wadazomo Hahaha, I know! But oh well, I suppose I can't really even wish for that before March. My ideal winter here in SW Finland would be: permanent snow cover in mid-December. Stays nice and beautiful till the end of February. Sun comes out, takes away the winter and we have a lovely, bubbly March, followed by warm April. (Never going to happen, but a girl can dream, right?)

I used to live in Utah, lots of mountains and the snow was beautiful. I live in Ohio and it is flat and gray all Winter. Look forward to seeing more of your Finland countryside throughout this winter.

@wadazomo Once it stops raining and starts snowing again, I will try to find some more wintry countryside views for you. :)

Wow. This is breathtaking. I can see this as a large canvas. Fav.
posted January 4th, 2013  
@kwind Oh my. Thank you so much for the kind words and the fav. :) I may have to consider perhaps making this a centerpiece photo above my sofa. There's a whole lot of empty wall space and it's just waiting for a large canvas or three. :D
posted January 4th, 2013  
Exactly what KWind said! Definitely a fav.

Wow...incredible capture. Stunning composition and lighting. Fav
posted January 4th, 2013  
@losthorizon Thank you for the follow and comment. :) The shot was originally a bit wider, you know, but I do think this crop works better, gives the composition a more balanced feel. :)
posted January 4th, 2013  
@joa Definitely. The photo doesn't overwhelm you. Gets to the point. Love how the trees fade into the distance.
posted January 4th, 2013  
Excellent shot, I really like this! :-) Fav, my first for 2013 :-)
posted January 5th, 2013  
Stunning!!! I love the edit!!
posted January 5th, 2013  
Really good composition and contrast. Like the black and white.
posted January 5th, 2013  
@vposey Aww, I appreciate it so much. Glad I could give you a reason for a fav. :)
@aprilmilani Thank you, April. I quite like the edit myself, for once I got exactly the result I had in my mind with it!
@ziona Thank you for your comment, Ziona. I'm glad you like the shot. :)

Love the high key. A great composition xx
posted January 5th, 2013  
@psychographer Thank you! The infrared b&w does give a fun high key effect. :) Edited so much it hurts, but I do like the results... ;)
posted January 5th, 2013  
Wow, this is stunning. It's the sort of picture I'd love to hang on my wall.
posted January 5th, 2013  
@hehe1308 Aww, thanks! :) I think that's the highest form of compliment here, to have someone say they'd like to hang the picture on their wall. :)
posted January 5th, 2013  
this is such a wonderful shot!
posted January 5th, 2013  
@northy I'm super glad you think so! :)

@yellowdog Thank you, Kelly! And I'm glad to have you around for company, welcome to my project. :)
@jantan Thanks, Jan, I appreciate it. :)
@nita I'm so happy to hear that, thank you! :)
@blestmom4 I'm so delighted about the response to this shot, makes me very happy to hear you like it too! :)
@espyetta Sounds like I've got to check your tree photos as well! ;)
@grizzlysghost Aaron, thank you so much! Coming from you, aww shucks, I keep trying to remind myself NOT to think "I'm not worthy..." :D
@tbats22 Thank you so much. I'm so happy for your fav, too.

In fact, I'm really quite delighted about all of you visiting, commenting and faving - and following! The response to this shot - I do think I haven't had anything like this happen before. :) Thank you! *happy dance*

This is so great, it really caught my eye on the PP. Love the way the trees are all different shapes.
posted January 6th, 2013  
This is one where I really stopped what I was doing and spent some time looking and studying. How odd that the trees are all in a row, evenly spaced, but different shapes. Good choice for B&W. I think the plain white sky helps emphasize the pattern and simplicity. Fav.
posted January 6th, 2013  
Gorgeous shot! Wonderful scene and fantastic processing. Fav.
posted January 6th, 2013  
wonderful capture
posted January 6th, 2013  
@boxplayer Thanks! I think who ever planted those trees really had a good eye. Or rather, was good at thinking ahead, about how the trees would look later. I thought the different shapes were interesting, too.
@rvwalker Thank you very much for your comment, Ross. I appreciate it that you took the time to really look at the photo. The trees are, in fact, lining a pedestrian route through some fields (as far as I was able to tell from the roadside where I took the photo from) and if you look closely, the title should actually be Twelve. :)
@egad :) Thank you so much. I really appreciate your comment and fav! :)
@jsorensenart Thank you, Jake. I'm glad you like it.

@stepheesue Thank you so much, Stephanie! :)

Fabulous, Johanna.... nice to meet you through Jani and Flickr.
posted January 6th, 2013  
@aspada Well hi there! Believe it or not, but I've kinda been too shy to follow you on either forum, so thanks for breaking the ice! :D
posted January 6th, 2013  
great shot!
posted January 6th, 2013  
Such a beautiful composition. Lovely shot...
posted January 7th, 2013  
I love the crispness of this but you still captured the hazy mist - really beautiful!
posted January 7th, 2013  
buustaan vähän vielä sun menestyskuvaa favilla ;)
posted January 7th, 2013  
@luka365 Thank you, Luka! :)
@roadshow Glad to hear you like it, Gloria! :)
@a1000words The weather was really odd that day, below zero C, but misty. I'm glad it got captured, the mist I mean. ;)
@janim Oi sentään, kiitos. :) Ei mulla oo tämmöistä buustia ikäpäivänä ollutkaan, heh. Tammikuu taitaa auttaa aika kivasti. ;) Mut kiva, että tuli sun buusti mukaan - ne vanhat häviskin sen siliän tien kun poistit tilisi. Kommentit jäi, mutta ne harvat ja arvostetut favit hävis. Ounou. :D
posted January 7th, 2013  
Very cool capture! Love the touch of fog amongst the trees. And the tree line up. Looks good in b&w.
posted January 10th, 2013  
@jbrojas Thanks! I think the b&w is what makes this shot, for the most part. It was quite gray and, well, gray without the edit. :D
posted January 10th, 2013  
Oh wow, nothing else I can say
posted January 21st, 2013  
Except, this would be a wall hangar for sure
posted January 21st, 2013  
@jase_h Aww, thanks! :) This is probably my most popular shot in the project so far. And I think I'll make a big canvas of it on my own wall at least! :)
