All winter long, I had looked forward to a good snowfall. Now that it was here, I didn’t know what to think of it. I was glad to finally have some snow on the ground and on the trees, I was glad to have temperatures that did not make it painful to take photos of the snow but part of me kept saying, ”This is when we should look forward to trees blossoming.“ So I looked up at the trees, pretended the snow on the branches were spring blossoms and hit the shutter!
We are still at Cascade Park in this photo.

A very graphical photo, beautiful combination of colors, the branches covered with hoarfrost looks like from a fairy tale

Hello Murat, I am a bit confused, is it the frost or blossom? Here in Basel the spring has come. There are daffodils and other flowers, and the trees of magnolias are in full blossom.
Lovely picture with the blue sky.
Kind regrads MAlgo

Excellent sharpness and light upon the branches and contrast beautifully against the blue sky.
Signs of spring, indeed.
Have a nice new week,

the Spring blossoms as outline on the blue sky makes the scene even more attractive.Excellent the created contrast.

A very apt image for the first day of spring even if the branches are covered in snow and not blossom. The intricate patterns of the branches look superb against that glorious blue sky.

Sometimes imagination can do wonders. These frosty branches could indeed be taken for a blossoming tree in spring - with some imagination and just a quick glance. Whatever we are seeing here it has a considerable beauty, and the simplicity of this photo is very appealing.

A beautiful photo of the many frozen branches against the perfectly blue winter sky. Let's hope the snow gets replaced by real blossoms before too long!

A lovely soft contrast picture with the branches and the light snow and blue sky in background.
I like your simple composition and the sharp presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
