So old man Winter is back again and turns the forest into a fairytale scenery. The easiest way of getting forward in the snowy forest is walking in the river that is not yet frozen. St.Kolomann, Salzburg (Austria)
No, I'm using the polfilter only for water, to control the amount of reflections and together with a tripod. There are many sites where you can learn about the basics of photography, like this one www.little-photo-college.net/ , but you are doing already quite well.
Thank you for the link. And thanks for the tip on the filter, would that be a circular polarizer? I have one of those, if it ever stops icing up here I'm going to head out to my favorite waterfall and try that. I can handle snow, it's the ice I don't like to be out in.
