Congratulations to Scott Kroeker for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 9 votes - View Previous Winners


For many years I've wanted to photograph scenes like this at Victoria Beach, MB. Yesterday's strong winds and cold temps made for the perfect conditions for ice to form on this tree. A very tricky camera angle to set up for but my efforts were rewarded when the sun poked out from the clouds just before dropping below the horizon. This explosion of colour only lasted a few minutes but I was prepared for it.

Enjoy!

Thanks for looking!

Fortune favors the prepared; wonderful shot! Great light and contrast between warm and cool tones. That had to be cold!

Thank you all so much. Just about to goto this area again. 3rd day in a row. Not sure if I'll get a sunset this time. We'll see.

Hey Scott,

What a super sweet shot! You should add the shot of the behind the scenes view that you posted on FB.

i think the left part of the image is where the real magic is. the right side would be interesting if the left side werent dominating the whole show. as it stand the right side is a distraction.


did you get any other comps of just the left side?
