We had some -30 degree days here recently. At that temperature the rivers steam because the water is so much warmer then the air. These two shots are a day apart, same spot. They looked kind of boring colored because its winter. The B&W conversions are much better. The ice crystal sun halo in the second is a real bonus. Looking forward to seeing this second one printed.

They look boring in B&W too. It's not because it's winter either.

Really? I dont think they are boring. In fact one of the galleries I show in wants a 24x36 with the halo. But I guess to each there own. I know my images dont have the excitement of your... Hawaiian sunrise...:lol:

If you search through most of his postings, he is adept at being critical, crass, and quite ignorable . He virtually has nothing constructive nor nice to say. Some people just can't help it.

2nd shot is a cracker, not boring at all, the way the light is coming through the scrub is great. And that halo, well worth shooting.

Second one outshines the first, but anyone willing to go out in those temps and come back with more than just frostbite has my respect.

The light through the scrub caught my eye too.

The second one is very nice! I think it would be even better to crop off the top to just above the halo. It would have a stronger composition as the sky above isn't adding anything.

Thanks for posting! :D
