Thank you all for entering and I apologise for the delay in commenting.

So who made me feel cold?!

Winter Robin by Perspicador
What a beauty, Proud as always. I feel reassured when I see a robin. This fine bird warms my heart but sadly doesn't give me the chills.

Snow Maiden by Nigelk
Lots of snow. A snow woman. Cold, but not brass nuts cold.

Frozen Fruit by tyronet2000
A different take. The colours and the iciness of the said fruit. The table is a little distracting as its warmth detracts slightly from the ice and the white bowl. Love it though.

Frozen Assets by MHOL190246
Another avian shot. The gull looks a little forlorn. What type of gull is this? I like this but it doesn't scream cold.

Postcard from the Winter by andymat
Cold. Bleak. Lonely. Beautiful. From the snow blasted branches to the fields, hedgerows and tress receding into the distance. A wonderful shot.

The road ahead by vic cross
That's cold. To my eyes this shot plays tricks as the field in the distance also looks like a ceiling of snow above the road. Norway is a place I long to visit.

Disappearing frost by retsoor
A lovely scene. A little contrasty and warm. It's that coupled with the saturation that takes away from the cold that exists in this scene.

Ice Cream girl by Noelcmn
I love this photograph, and in another context, it would be a winner. The shot screams summer to me with the vibrant colours and the ice cream sadly doesn't compensate.


The winner, you know, is Postcard from the Winter by Andymat

In second place is Frozen Fruit by tyronet2000

And third goes to The road ahead by Vic Cross

Thank you again and be well.

Yeah, I thought that one would be the winner, it certainly made me feel brrrrrrr..... Congrats Andymat, beautiful winter landscape, worhty winner. And congrats extended to Tyronet2000 and Vic Cross! Thanks for the challenge and the C&C's. You are quite right about my image, but here feelings rather than thought dominated, as Ice Cream usually freezes my throat and esophagus.

Congrats to Andymat. and Tyronet2000. Thanks for 3rd place. Now we can all warm up and get on with the summer.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.
