Thanks ...I'm a bit speechless. I'm glad you guys like this image. Thanks for the ribbon. Something about blind pigs, or squirrels or something...
I live in Minnesota, where the cold is a fairly normal thing. Last Sunday we jumped in the truck and headed west to see if we could find any snowy owls, down from Canada this year. The forecast was for high wind, so we didn't have any real expectation for owls, but we also didn't expect the weather we got into. At the point I shot this image, the air temp was +8F and the wind chill was about -15. Quite an experience.

owls?? Where! My brother still lives in MN, and I don't think he's heard about them!

Congrats on the PB! I definitely felt cold looking at this one!

That's a score about anyone would find extremely hard to beat. Nice job. Stay warm.

Beautifully obscure, like the sun and wind that hits your senses in a winter field.

What a lovely shot, such delicate lines and beautiful lighting. Feels cold too. How would you like a nice big fat 9 for your troubles my friend.

I love the natural high key. Gorgeous. Minimal. I'd love a print of it.

I love this image but I think the thick dark border detracts a bit from the soft colors of the image.

beautiful !!!

One of my three highest rated photos. Here I love how cold is conveyed through delicacy, and a misleading delicacy since these reeds and this tree are so resolute and, therefore, heartening. The soft colors, too, lead one there and back.
