    Here are some pics which were made while I was skiing: one day the weather had warm up in the afternoon, it started to rain, but during night the temperature dropped below zero again.
    All the rain drops on the branches and trees had frozen during the night, everything was coated with ice and there had been created a beautiful morning view - all the nature had been just like in a fairy tale:

    That is very BEAUTIFUL, Branka! It looks like a magical Winter Wonderland...Also looks COLD! Next week we are going to get the "Polar Express." That means very low at night, and in the 20's for a HIGH next week. OH! I can hardly wait :-( I went out and bought a new heater for the greenhouse today...LOL! Betty :-)

    Your photos are so beautiful, Branka. I feel as if I can touch the icicles on the trees. But my favourite is the first picture - so well composed. Thanks for sharing.

    NB: You rally are the outdoor type ; sailing in the summer and now skiing in the winter.

    Your photography is remarkable in these scenes. Your timing was near perfect in catching the sun at a perfect angle for a beautiful shot in the second photo. AL

    the sun column almost looks like a glare on the lens. we get them often in the winter, but I have only seen them at sunset, never sunrise. I suppose it has to do with ice crystals in the air, etc... the one thing we do not get that I would like to see are the Northern Lights. We are just a bit too far south to see them.
