Selecting images for 4x4 has been quite a challenge for me. I could think of many 3x3 portfolios among my pictures but 4x4 is much more difficult. I decided to choose these 4 images which were taken during winter months and share similar subject - trees. It all started with Trees Frozen in Dance - a scene which I went by in January 2014 in Beskydy Mountains. Since then I realised how well vertical format and winter conditions work for my landscape photography. Trees appear very fragile and their strengths and weaknesses are visible.
