    Congratulations on your top finish in a tough field, John. I like everything about this image, and it would have been my top pick if I had voted.

    Thanks for the extra info - I would never thought of using that filter - always nice to learn something new. As for location - I'm used to getting some great winter shots from Finland and Sweden - I can usually guess them if they are taken in daylight - they have that incredible cold sunlight effect but I'm lost on the night shots. Loved the starkness of your shot.

    Wow, thanks did not think I would win, there was many good entries. Thanks again. I really enjoy taking pictures in the winter, being a South African did not grow up seeing anything like this. In my 13 years here I've seen some amazing winter scenes.

This was taken with a Graduated ND filter, that's how I managed to get the dark sky.

Mepo - Very likely to be Canada at this time of year.
RolandB - Yes we do.
mrsawyer - sent you a email.

Thanks to everyone that commented and voted for me.

    LOVE the lighting! Top 5

    I find this just so very beautiful in it's sad abandonment. Nice perspective and fantastic light.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

out of focus - This is Port Elgin, Ontario Canada. Ice should be gone by now, was cold that day hands got frozen after just 30 min or so.

    Just love this shot on so many levels - the rivulets of snow carved by the wind, the brooding sky, the clarity, and that lovely swath of colour to set it all off.

Apr 7, 2013
    I love this image. It is absolutely spectacular. I love the sky with the wee bit of color. The wonderful texture and detail in the clouds offsets the smoothness of the ice around the docks. This really is an outstanding image.

Apr 7, 2013
    ok, it is great photo.. but where in the world it is completely frozen in March ? It would be nice if the entry came with explanation, extra info with location.

Apr 6, 2013
    No one in their right mind is going to enjoy using that path for a while. The colour fro the setting sun accentuates the cold. Very nice!

    Never seen anything like this before. Looks so cold and bleak. Nice composition.
