Snow on the countryside: Tractor tracks on ice - Icy path through field

Here are what tractor tracks looks like after some snow and ice.

Blurred away, near the tree, there is a car with a man standing near it: maybe I was not the only one taking some photos of this nice landscape :-)

Snow on the countryside: Snow and ice, a frozen still life

Here is another frozen puddle.
I liked the strange shape of the ice :-)
I also find interesting the contour of snow and earth.

Snow on the countryside: Crack! - Walking on (thin) ice

 Here you can admire my foot, in all its magnificence :-)

And this is what happen when you walk on thin ice: You mustn't do it...
...unless you are a photographer who is trying to break a frozen puddle (no more deep than an inch) to take a photo of it :-)

Snow on the countryside: Water river under the ice - Frozen still life

Sometime a frozen puddle can make for a great subject :-)
I like all the different kind of appearance that a tiny piece of ice can show.
Also, the mix of water and air under the ice create an effect that recall many tiny rivers.

This is my frozen version of a still life :-)
