We have a tie for the winner in this very closely-contested challenge! Congratulations to UpNorthPhoto for Old trees in fog. Right outside of Oslo, Norway and Barbara Brown for A Winter Glow, challenge co-winners with 7 votes each.

Congratulations as well to the rest of the Top 10 – 3 images with 5 votes, and 5 images with 4 votes. And thanks to all of you who entered and voted in this challenge. The quality and diversity of images submitted given the relatively narrow challenge subject is a credit to this group and all of its talented members.

All photos here are linked to originals to make it easy for you to comment individually or add to your favorites, if you wish.
