Your work is actually ZEN (zuschauen, entspannen, nachdenken) to the point with an immaculate composition and a beautiful black and white. It is indeed a silent, foggy winters day. Contemplation is the word I think.

Kind regards,

So still.  Almost oppressively, palpably so.

Ruud Albers

Very nicely composed beautiful work, Wolfgang!

With best regards,



Barbara Corvino

Interesting composition.

Marjolein M.

Lovely..!  Serenity...  Mood..  Composition...  B&W tones...

Should be seen enlarged & framed.

The atmosphere you've captured is remarkable. Previous comments offer many impressions. Art is not easily defined.  Nice work.  ~~~~~L

This photo made me immediately think of the quote attributed to Einstein: "everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler".

If this photo contained less elements, it would probably become too simple. As it is now, of a lovely tranquility, balanced just right, deceivingly simple (as it's not all that easy to make a photo as simple as this, in my limited experience).
 I sense longing, a dash of loneliness without a whining negative tone. Being different, firm and unique, with only some others far away off in the hazy distances. A nice balance between those two....

Deceivingly simple, but fortunately not too simple.

Hi Wolfgang

There seems to be an implied relationship between the foreground object and its cousins that are leaving, fading away in the distant fog. One gets a sense of sad utter loneliness from its perspective. The tree adds a witness to the scene and accentuates the distance and scale.

Very well done!


Best Regards

Barbara, Jeff, Alf, Ruud, Marjolein,

Many thanks for your comments - much appreciated :-)

This was a dull winter's day which basically didn't really invite to go out - but it offered this atmosphere when fog isolates objects and everything in the distance fades away into a white void.

This is the beauty of silence, The fog   enhances the deatails of reality in a very nice way creating a beautiful mood in B/W
