Ice and tree branch
This shallow backwater of the river Doubs, near Biaufond, is a place to which I keep returning. It is a fascinating stretch of water which offers subjects in all seasons. I was previously there in Autumn when the trees put on a rich display of colour. In Winter, the shades are more muted but no less appealing.

I was attracted by the way the ice had formed around this low-hanging branch and felt the larger area of ice covering the pond might make for an intriguing background.
