"Sun, Snow and Frost"

By RonnieAG
I admit to this being a composite image as I borrowed the red jacketed figure from another shot and dumped him at an appropriate place in this one.

My thanks to all who commented on Festive Bear Necessities, and with special thanks to Netta {netta1234}, Trev {TrevBatWCC} and Lillian for their User Awards which were unexpected but so much appreciated.

A delightful and well exposed image Ronnie. The stuff winter scenes are made off. The inclusion of the walker wearing red adds to it .

Lovely shot Ronnie, perfectly composed and the addition of the red jacketed walker really rounds it off, did you also add the footprints as they give him full authenticity. BTW looks like you've got it colder than we over here!

The red coat is perfect, Ronnie and so skilfully placed to keep the proportions right. The diagonal of the trees lead straight down to the figure as well. An excellent piece of composition.

The emergence of red makes this quite ordinary wintery composition into something stunning Ronnie.

I'd never have guessed that you imported the walker, are very honest. But I assume the footprints were already there...........unless, of course, you walked the path, in virgin snow, just to give it interestWink?????

A real winter wonderland Ronnie, this is what a fairy tale Christmas is all about and would have Bing Crosby beeming with pride. I like the inclusion of the walker clad in red to provide a splash of colour which stands out from all that white and pale blue
