CHALLENGE WINNER: Winter Snows Throughout The World in the Quality Layered Work + HDR group, January, 2011.

Featured in the One Tree at a Time and HDR Photography groups, December 2010 and the Photomatix HDR, the Your Magic Place, the Stunning ’Scapes and Nature & Man groups, January, 2011.

Sledding with my son the other day, I spied this tree atop a hill (on the Zugerberg, Zug, Switzerland) standing valiantly against the bitter cold of a Swiss winter.

The pure white snow against the brilliant blue sky was breathtaking for this expat Aussie.

    Just enough cloud to add interest to the sky and I like the fence posts marching across the snow.

  • Cheers Ian.
