At the Heart of Winter by alexandre-deschaumes At the Heart of Winter by alexandre-deschaumes
During our recent winter adventures , we beheld a sort of ice fortress .. appearing through the mist .

this was a mostly faerytale path , in the deep silence of winter ... full of ice , snow and frost .

Difficult conditions because all the water coming on me was turning solid in a few seconds .. on my clothes, bags, and gears ..

Hi, you know how much our souls are in contact with nature. Human live is like this river with the constancy of movement. And there is always a big wall begin us. It is what one has not yet indecipherable reason decided to stop our journey. The ice gives the thematic unity that gives strength to the picture. this is the ice the unity with With all its features and of course with these qualities have similarities with aspects of human life .now we think that this opportunity to live effectively deal with any adversity gives us hope no matter the circumstance in which we live. Excellent is certainly worthy of a complete picture be witnessed as it gives us the opportunity to clean some of those problems that afflict the heart.

Great photo work! The perspective and water motion effect gave it a dynamic look. Beautiful light and almost monochromatic tones. I love the background misty atmosphere.
