I was attracted to the trees on this snowy hillside in Franconia Notch, NH. I thought their bare, stark limbs created a nice contrast against the snow and fog in the scene. Kind of a minimalist scene but it struck a chord with me.
This is really interesting and I’m enjoying it very much. I too like the stark conditions with the bare trees and fog but then that lone pine just kind of made it for me. Really nice work!
My kinda scene and image Ed. The fog seals in the scene nicely and I particularly like the lone conifer as a place for the eye to return to. Good job with the color and WB as well. Enjoying this one.
Reminds me of the Bershires where the trees’ dark shapes are emphasized by the white snowy backdrop. That lone conifer makes this image complete.
This is a real winner, Ed. I’m not sure that I would call it minimalist, it is perhaps a bit busy for that qualifier, but in terms of a very limited color palette it is indeed minimalist, and that is exactly what makes it work for me. I imagine a contrasty B&W working very well too.
The subdued color of the trees works beautifully with the white snow, Ed. I also like the way the trees along the ridge disappear into the fog as it adds a nice air of mystery to the image. Great eye to spot and isolate this scene. The solitary evergreen is a nice touch.
This image has a strange kind of beauty … very haunting in nature. Something about desolate places that I absolutely love.
Really well done Ed.
This is a unique and pleasing shot. I especially like the many small lines of the bare trees against the white snow, the fog at the top, and the one evergreen tree. This is the kind of image I could look at for a long time.
@Alberto_Patino-Douce, I guess you are right, this is not really a minimalist image, instead I think I should have said the composition is relatively simple.
The bare trees in all the white look great, Ed. An intriguing semi-abstract.
A most unusual and very creative composition and presentation. Love the graphic feel and the way your eye is drawn here and there across the boundless woodland.
