Winter abstract

By brownsilent
Hello everybody on a sunny, cold winter afternoon,

I am sorry to have been away once again from the site, but things kept me busy.
Tomorrow I am taking my brother to the clinic again, he needs another surgery, now on the right side of his neck. He's going to be under the knife on Wednesday.
If everything goes well, I can take him home next Monday and hopefully there will be no more trouble.

It is still very cold here and we have some snow. Hope you agree with me - winter can be very beautiful.

If possible, I'll drop in and have a look at your work.
Have a good week,

Nice natural pattern repeats in V1. I like V3 too - the long shadows come over better in the portrait frame.

Really like that pattern and shaodws of V1 amongst a nicely observed and captured set. All my very best wishes to your brother for a happy outcome.

V1 makes for a super abstract.

Hope all goes well with your brother's op?

Really like this. It reminds me of patterns that Escher would've drawn. Very clever.

Lovely shots. V1 is very eye-catching.

Do hope your brother's surgery goes well.

Johanna, I especially like the first image because of the near abstract feel (the others are great too). I do hope that all goes well for your brother - you and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers.

v1 - perfect abstract for v1, and excellent backlit shadows in the others.

Two fine winter landscapes but the abstract nature of V 1 is so eye catching.
My best wishes to your brother too, Johanna.

The images are all well shown Johanna and each one could be shown on its own. I think I have to vote for the amazing pattern in V1, Well spotted indeed. My best wishes to your brother for a speedy recovery.

great set
Having been "on the tiles" a few times, I kinda recognise the pattern Johanna, and very pretty it is too. My best wishes to your brother and to you and your family of course. There always seems to be something about for us to worry about.

Nice images and you didn't have to go too far either.

V1 is a very good graphic image, I like that.
I also like the light coming through the trees in the other 2 photographs.
