That is an appealing composition. Has a Japanese style 'look' .

Good bokeh which enhances the photo, IMO.

Must have been some creative thinking also, before the photo was taken. Nice work.

Refreshing image to see for us folks who live in winds at 50mph and 70 degrees!

Great shot. Very "arty" (in the nicest way). It also reminds me that the thermometers are heading in different directions for you and me.

Yes, the "platinum" toning gives it a feel similar to sumi-e (ink paintings).

I've never seen ice crystals like that! I wonder what temperature and humidity is needed to create them?

Thanks Rob - that wasn't my intention to mimic ink paintings - but mentioning it I see the resemblance!

As far as weather - I'm looking at official historical data here - got up to a max of 9C the day before with no precipitation at all, fell to a minimum of -4C overnight, with humidity of 96-99% until morning. I took this shot around midday, and was surprised that the frost still hadn't burned off.

I feel cold by looking at this photo! So really a 'cool' shot and I can see the attraction in picking out this detail in probably a lot bigger landscape full of frozen stuff. Well spotted and taken combined with a really fitting treatment in post.

No worries! My first thought was platinum print toning.

Thanks! I guess somewhere in that transition was a long period of high humidity close to freezing point which allowed the crystals to grow unusually long.

Thanks for the kind words Remco - part of the reason for picking out detail in a large landscape was caused by the fact I just had the 150-450 with me

Yep - that's the best explanation - it's not very typical for the frost to grow out so much like that.

Wow. Reminiscent of Chinese ink painting
