Between the Sun and the Moon

Yesterday we went for a beautiful walk in the wintry landscape, down to a little lake in the forest where people took the opportunity to skate on the ice. To get there we went through the woods out into the open fields where we had the descending sun on one side and the ascending moon on the other, which created some fabulous colours, changing rapidly, minute by minute. The temperature was well below freezing, so we had wrapped up well. I was surprised to find that I had taken 90 photos, out of which I have chosen 20 for this slideshow. I hope I have been able to make the spectacular colours justice. Join us on this walk, you won’t feel any cold, I guarantee!

Absolutely wonderful show Swen, I can appreciate the cold weather you depicted, we have much of the same conditions here in Canada..

Glad you had such an enjoyable festive season with the family, we wish you good luck for this new year. :)

Oreneta - thanks, it waaaaaas!
Veronica - I hope your short break was 'sufficiently wonderful' (sounds stuffy, doesn't it?), energising but also relaxing.
Eric - ...and to you, Eric. You will probably still have tons of snow, but hopefully not too long before you can visit your beloved park again!
