    Nice stuff, the Lagerstedt photos are stunning, what a beautiful place they live in.

  • Rebecca, December 17, 2012

    Those photos are stunning. Great use of color and lighting. The last one is particularly good

    beautiful photos, i really like snow

  • GNB, December 19, 2012

    Excellent images that convey the environment. I’m curious though why most of them seem to have a theme about roads/paths?

    These photos are magical. And blue season is also charming :) Thank you for sharing! I have been always waiting for winter and Christams holidays, This days have their own magic.

    Cool pics. When I look at the one, I can’t help but think “Winter in Sleepy Hollow”. That will make more sense if you have seen the movie.

  • Creative Jar, December 21, 2012

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Some of these images are absolutely incredible.

    Where did you source them?

    Superb photos. I particularly like the one with the frosty looking leaves.

  • Tim, December 23, 2012

    Derrick B, I was thinking the same thing when I saw that tree. Very cool pics. Except for the one with the rabbit. That is an obvious photo manipulation of several different photos. The rabbit is too large and the lighting is incorrect.
