Though it has got a little colder, the weather is just as undecided as last week. There were some glimpses of the sun on Saturday, mind you. But it soon gave up, leaving everything to the clouds with the only difference, that the drizzle has been replaced by an icy easterly wind. So I still have to take out pictures of past years to remind myself, what a light, tranquil season winter can be.
This is a view of the lake of Selent, just before freezing over. The part of it that is closest to our village is rather shallow, so it’s the first part of the lake to freeze over and thus a safe place for the kids to go ice skating. Sometimes the ice is so clear that you can see the fish swim below.
This is the view from our back garden. On that morning the bright light combined with a little fog created a dreamlike, romantic atmosphere. You couldn’t really tell where exactly the earth ended and the sky started.
