On Monday, there was a fair amount of ice on many of our roads.
Nikon D700 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 200 40 mm (35mm equiv.)
Wonderful image. Love how the tree in the foreground stands out in such sharp relief from the fog-shrouded trees in the background. The roadway angling off into the distance adds to the sense of depth. Mono was the perfect choice.

@Bill Laing: Many thanks.
I love the sharp detail of the tree, while the rest are lost in the mist - beautiful!
12 Jan 2011 5:06am
great image - love trees and this one is especially beautiful!
12 Jan 2011 5:29am
I do think you are the Master of the foggy, misty compositions. Love it as always Jack.
12 Jan 2011 6:01am
beautiful image!! the composition is fabulous - this one is definitely worth framing!!
12 Jan 2011 6:37am
You've got a beautiful contrast of clarity and diffused light happening here... a nuanced and very pleasing image.
12 Jan 2011 6:49am
An evocative black and white image that fills my room here
with the chill of the frost and a wisp of that foggy morning.
12 Jan 2011 7:08am
Superb composition and light! I love this framing with the diagonal piece of road.
12 Jan 2011 7:22am
You're shooting... misty, for us. Great !

@Joseph: Thank you. I don't have the language skills to navigate your website and post comments on your lovely photographs. They are quite beautiful.

12 Jan 2011 9:18am
Fantastic shot.. love the mist.
12 Jan 2011 9:33am
Un paysage brumeux superbe ....
Comme tu sais nous en faire profiter. ))
12 Jan 2011 9:34am
very great capture
12 Jan 2011 9:56am
ice on the road, hoarfrost on the trees and in the grass - a very atmospheric picture of winter!
12 Jan 2011 10:50am
beautiful b/w compo!
perfect contrast and a great foggy mood!
12 Jan 2011 10:57am
Very beautiful composition ! I like also the mist !
12 Jan 2011 11:04am
You achieve everything in this picture: A wonderfully clear tree (and grass) combined with frost all over including the misty sky - and an icy road. Does your fullframe D700 add extra thay you wouldn't get without it?

@Henrik Herskind: The differences between my D700 and my D300 for the most part are subtle. The are two main things that are of value to me. 1. in the D700, there is significantly less noise at higher ISOs. And, 2. the burst speed of the D700 is higher (I do lots of handheld bracketed shots).
I love this because of the mist, B&W and the mood. But imho I would have wanted a bit wider perspective to really see that magnificent tree. Well captured and processed.
@Frida: Frida - I still cannot access you sight to make comments.
The lone tree stands out so clearly against the foggy ones ... neat shot!
12 Jan 2011 12:00pm
Wonderful black & white image! Love it!
12 Jan 2011 12:07pm
A great big tree ... I love the picture that trace their branches in the space ice cream. Magnificent image friend Jack! Muchos besos y abrazo querido amigo! Adela
12 Jan 2011 12:10pm
Another atmospheric cracker here, Jack. B&W really suits the image.
12 Jan 2011 12:44pm
Beautiful composition and mysterious atmosphere...
12 Jan 2011 12:59pm
cold looking shot. nice.
12 Jan 2011 1:50pm
A wonderful capture Jack! Well done! ;-)
12 Jan 2011 1:53pm
completely brilliant work
12 Jan 2011 2:12pm
superbe ! 5 étoiles !
J'aime les arbres ! j'adore le mystère et la vie qu'ils dégagent...comme leur force. Ta photo est une merveille je suis sous le charme !
12 Jan 2011 2:27pm
The frosted tree that emerges from the mist. Splendid B & W. Good day.
12 Jan 2011 2:38pm
Stunning landscape! Love the mood and tone!!!! 5*****! A Favorite!
12 Jan 2011 3:09pm
Yikes! Slip and slide time.
Yah I agree with Bill, Jack! The contrast is fantastic with the subject tree.And I can see the iciness of the road. Everything is wonderfully placed and composed and I truly love the other tree wayyy over there in the right hand side...it just gives us another place to look and the balance it provides for the image as a whole is perfect...this is a true winner!
12 Jan 2011 3:23pm
A fine capture of the "icy" feel of that day with the crisp tree and the ice all over the surrounding area. I like this one very much.
12 Jan 2011 3:57pm
Beautiful tree and real winter weather!
12 Jan 2011 4:06pm
Stunning foggy landscape, this is most amazing and beautiful. The still
is most infectious.
12 Jan 2011 4:24pm
Beautiful! I love the way the ice accentuates every little branch.
12 Jan 2011 4:54pm
Lovely graphic !!! A beautiful shot ! Well done !
12 Jan 2011 5:06pm
very well done , i like the bnw effect, it really fits the image ...
12 Jan 2011 5:18pm
I love the ice in the tree Jack!! Great wintershot with a wonderful mood!!
12 Jan 2011 5:30pm
Our roads have slush this A.M. after last night snow. Love the shape of that tree!
12 Jan 2011 5:49pm
Super in B&W!
12 Jan 2011 5:55pm
Great shot! Love the mood captured here...
12 Jan 2011 5:57pm
Great composition Jack! I Love it! This tree is beautiful and framing is perfect!
12 Jan 2011 6:00pm
oh wow, you know I love this one. I also love the shape of that tree.
12 Jan 2011 6:14pm
Nice monochrome. I like the road and the separation between the clump of trees on the right and the main center tree.
12 Jan 2011 6:59pm
He's soft this landscape of winter congealed by the frost.
12 Jan 2011 8:44pm
what a nice capture of the beauty of winter scenes ! the master of mist and sharpness...
12 Jan 2011 9:22pm
i think the whole country has crazy weather. This image of this tree is outstanding, Jack.
12 Jan 2011 9:48pm
Great shot. Good idea to do it in black and white.
12 Jan 2011 10:00pm
Beautifully-shaped and framed tree that you've captured here. I love the frosted highlights as well.
12 Jan 2011 10:16pm
Beautiful composition and toning. Do you always have picture-perfect fog where you live? It doesn't seem fair!
12 Jan 2011 11:17pm
Be careful on the icy roads. Beautiful tree in BW.
13 Jan 2011 12:26am
Thank you for your thoughts regarding D700/D300. I shall bear that in mind if I get the opportunity to exchange my D40 for something better.
13 Jan 2011 12:28am
That is an awesome shot.
13 Jan 2011 2:29am
A perfect dreamy magical shot in B&W. I bet many a driver wished he or she were back in bed dreaming instead of being on those icy roads!! Simply Stunning!
13 Jan 2011 2:30am
B&W is the perfect choice here.
13 Jan 2011 4:20am
This is a gorgeous shot. I love the sharpness of the tree against the mist.
13 Jan 2011 4:29am
Oh yes Jack, my kind of frame, and what a beauty in mono. First class.
13 Jan 2011 4:58am
Très réussi ce NB
13 Jan 2011 7:14am
Beautiful, rich , not so naked, but naked tree ;)) Great in mono !
13 Jan 2011 5:47pm
I love it... mood, composition, treatment... simply to print it and see it every time...
13 Jan 2011 8:50pm
superbes contrastes dans ce noir et blanc.
14 Jan 2011 9:21pm
Very stylish image just beautiful
14 Jan 2011 11:39pm
Great atmospheric shot.
16 Jan 2011 6:32am
To me something is either 'whole' or lacking some element, obvious or sublime, that contributes to it's wholeness. This is whole.
17 Jan 2011 12:38am
@Rebecca: Thank you.
Lovely b&w...very nice with that foggy /mysty background..
