Ahhhh, so it really is possible to find a different angle on this much-photographed mountain. Wink

Nice one!

Lovely limited palette and a unique view of the landmark mountain. I'm not sure the trees frame it so much as attempt to obscure it but being such an inconic shape, they do cleverly delay recognition a moment, prolonging viewing time as well as injecting a lovely graphic feel to the comp. I wonder if the graphic feel would be further enhanced by having the bottom frame edge at the base of their trunks?

Nice one!

We always seem to get the same view, it gets boring after the first 1000 almost identical images... it's nice to at last see someone avoiding the tripod holes.
Lovely wintry image, Dougie.

What I was thinking. This is creeping up on it, spying on it through the trees. Rather than full-frontal assault, as most images are. Subtle.
I'd like to see more of the tree just peeping in on the left though. But that might then bring in another trunk, and so on...

Nice one!

Great minds etc etc etc. The mountain looks demure, hiding behind the lace veil.

A bit different from the usual shot of the mountain, and I love it. Winter creeping closer all the time. Moira

Dougie I love this little pathway bot left corner taking us right into the image, skirting around those trees without a leaf in sight,then on to the main actor. Stupendous my friend.
