You have taken full advantage of the snowy misty conditions this winter, Ed, and have captured a huge series of fine shots, this being another: a like your composition here and again the B and W presentation adds to the sense of extreme chilliness in the air.

So cool how this looks almost like a mono, Ed Smile I love the 'layers' of trees and the various shades (not quite 50, though) of grey.

Such a beautiful shot.

Like the little hints of colour in this. Certainly allows the full force of the chill to reach out!

Woods are mysterious places, especcially on days like this, Ed. Have you considered a dramatic b&W version of this? Think it would really work well.

This is my favourite of your series. I like the strength of the tree trunks and stile, and the misty background.

Once again the B&W presentation is adding greatly to these winter shots Ed, though I'm beginning to feel a hankering to see just one in colour for comparison's sake!
