Christian, how is it that you can have such lovely outdoor pictures in winter?! I love your rushing waterfall photograph - the lush colors of the moss and ground cover...with the darkness play off the fast flowing water beautifully. I think you've done a fantastic job of framing in, too.
The first of those arrays of mushrooms is very nice - don't misunderstand me and I don't mean to belittle it, I just really like the cool, deep, softness of your second. To me, in the waterfall shot you've caught the feeling and sound of that little corner of the woods just beautifully.
BB, many thanks for your wonderful feedback! I am surprised, too, that I have been able to take these pictures during the winter. But although January is usually the coldest month of the whole year, it is extremely mild now. Last two weekends were so beautiful, if I did not know it better, I would think it is already spring.
