Icy Track by if1

Icy Track

319 - Near the start of yesterdays walk this track caught my eye. It runs to a short terrace of houses, and is a quiet location only about 100 yards from a busy main road north out of York.

It forms a quiet access to the flood bank around Clifton Ings, and is well used by dog walkers and others.

Most roads were almost clear of ice and snow, but here winter lingers on
Beautifully framed, looks in the middle of the country!

Beautifully framed shot Ian.
It has snowed quite a lot here today. Snowman and snow dog nearly un-recognizable as their features have disappeared in the snow

Like the tones and the leading lines and the trees to the right. Also like the house and Chimney but for all this it does feel that it is in the middle of the country

Nice frosty scene. Brrr!
January 18th, 2013  
Oh, my! I get cold just looking at this shot! It's a nice 50 degrees here.

A beautifully composed picture, with subtle colours. Maybe you've had more snow by now - it's come down here this afternoon.
January 18th, 2013  
Nice colour and lead with the path.
January 18th, 2013  
Yes I guess the shade of the trees "preserves" the frost.
January 18th, 2013  
Pretty! But it looks like it could be a spooky walk at night.
January 18th, 2013  
Beautiful scene.
January 18th, 2013  
Excellent composition. That path leads the eye through the picture and lovely natural framing by the trees. Good work.
January 18th, 2013  
Great capture and composition. The track draws you into the pic and the trees have made a nice framing .
January 18th, 2013  
love the composition, a beautiful scene.
January 18th, 2013

Beautiful shot Ian. Love the way that gnarly tree frames the main picture.
January 18th, 2013

January 18th, 2013  
Beautiful composition and scene, looks like it's in the countryside rather than by a busy street =)
January 19th, 2013  
Beautiful tranquil spot! I like how the path is framed by the trees.
January 19th, 2013

Beautiful I loved the rural feel to York's green areas. I used to run around here a lot.

@purplehaze12

Thank you Hazel - we had a bit more snow overnight, but it's still not deep enough to make walking really unpleasant.

Thank you William - the trees do help preserve the frost and snow, but it was amazing how this scene had changed by the end of my walk.

@hasselhotch

Thank you David, it's a lovely semi rural area quite close to where I live, so ideal for a local short walk (although you could join the Yoredale Way close to here and head for the Dales!)
January 19th, 2013  
These out of the way places are so undisturbed..nice walking path for dogs and their owners.

Thank you Bruni - it is usually well used by dog walkers, but it was quiet while I was there this time.
