The hoarfrosted world on this early 2007 December morning on the grounds of the country-house Groeneveld near Baarn in the Netherlands was really an enchanted world. Seldom have I seen such a rich hoarfrost layer on trees and plants.

    Beautiful composition and great depth, this almost looks like an infra-red image but it isn’t and i think that makes this even better, well done.
