Hauntingly Beautiful Frosty Winter Trees


Baden-Baden-based photographer Patrick Hbschmann captures the frozen, muted beauty of wintery landscapes. Each frame of the German photographer’s series titled Frost depicts a bewitching scene populated with trees whose wispy branches are either barren and cutting through the hazy atmosphere or lushly powered in white. In either case, the empty expanse, filled only with the mystifying ambience of nature, sets the scene for mystery and intrigue.

Hbschmann’s subdued, almost monochromatic, images seem like the perfect backdrop for a dark fairy tale filled with otherworldly characters. It’s as though something supernatural is expected to pop out from behind the trees or creep its way out of the murky waters. The misty fog over each landscape and the frigid color palette of whites, grays, and blues only heighten their gloomy yet beautiful appeal.
