"That is the moment when, after a long period of time, you once again see a beautiful winter with lots of snow, a clear sky and sunshine. That is because this is usually destroyed by lots of rain and the "dreary" weather which follows."
"I took this shot with my small, fairly old Nikon D70 and an IR filter. I find this camera ideal for this exposure technique. On this particular day, we deliberately set out with the intention of taking IR photographs. The weather was perfect in terms of the light conditions and this was exactly the type of image I wanted to capture."
"I like the cold, sunny wintry days. That's when I really enjoy packing up my camera and going out to take some nice photos of the beautiful scenery. I know it's a bit childish, but it's also great to go outside just after a fresh snowfall."
"I like photography, I take a lot of pictures and quite often I take part in photo competitions. Furthermore I like to browse through the great pictures of the other participants."
"To me photography is exciting and relaxing at the same time - it offers a way to hold on to unique moments in nature and our environment."
