December 3, 2009
The first snow fell a few days ago. It topped the mountains and stayed in the alpine areas. Around here (at 8oom high) we just had a few centimeters of fresh snow that is almost gone now. Generally December can bring a dense fog hiding fields and forests or a light mist that seems to create new landscapes. All eerie and poetic.
Fields and villages get a “new look”, unreal, soft, silent. Like this cool Winter sunset over lone farms near my home.
