I put the white of the snow at the foot of empty space

I have commuted by bicycle on three days this week, a total of six hours of exercise. The studded winter tires have been useful, as the road has been slippery and icy in quite a few places. But we have very little snow left, because of the rain earlier this week. On December 13 the landscape was white, though.

The third image is particularly nice. I really like the snow on branches but the composition on #3 works especially well for me.

Thanks, John!

We have had a couple of snowy days, and I have tried to take photographs, but the skill of handling snow is mostly forgotten during the long no-snow season. But even though snow is challenging for taking photographs, it is good for the mood of the photographer.
