Etang de la Colombière
Livradois-Forez Auvergne France

Image from early January at a lake in the middle of the forest. I took a series of images that day and this one almost landed in the wast basket.
In 2011 I wrote a blog post about ‘the old box‘  and mentioned that sometimes it is good to take some distance from your work and let time pass before you actually work on them
and decide if this is a keeper or is ready for the trash bin.

Etang-de-la-Colombière  Some feedback so far:

  • Love it!
  • Very, very nice.
  • Beautiful and surreal. I really like the blue cast and reflection.Gorgeous Kristel!!
  • What a wonderful mood and it just exudes peace and tranquility.

Pine trees in the clouds Livradois-Forez Auvergne France

It’s touching to see that one of my images again got recognized on as an Editor’s Pick, for the 14th time now in 2013.
They must like my photography 😉  and it makes me happy when people tell me that I inspire them with my work. Personally I am not always satisfied when I come home from a photo shoot because of the light or I could not find what I had in mind. A lot of the images land in the bin or in a folder ‘to look at later’. This image was for me a mind breaker, not really sure if it was in ‘balance’ if I had captured the right mood etc. And now I am happy that the little touch of sunlight and the clouds in the pine trees was appreciated and that the mood I had in mind is well translated.

For other images of that day see earlier blog-post: sunny moments in winter. Pine-trees-in-the-clouds Some feedback so far:

  • Always love your winterscapes!
  • Beautiful Kristel. Your images always seem to have a certain surreal yet realistic appearance. I so enjoy your work.
  • Great image. Very nice. Excelent shot.
  • Love this!!! moody, excellent presention…First class!
  • Beautiful winterscape
  • Wonderful image Kristal.   Thanks for sharing this beautiful shot.

Some feedback so far:

  • Lovely scene — I like the contrasts of the dark green mossy rocks against the white stream.

  • Love the detail and contrast.
  • Another beautiful image!

  • I love the delicate detail and dusting of snow Kristel — superb image!
