The Shortest Day

I did this walk with awe on a hard winter day in 2011. Every part of the landscape had turned itself into an adventure due to a heavy snowfall during the night.

Happy Winter Solstice

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.

    • Thanks, David. I know what you mean. The fields in Denmark are not covered with snow but water – we are in for the wettest year ever.
      Lots of Christmas greetings from Denmark !!

  1. It has been too long ago since there has been a real winter (meaning: with snow) 😦 Beautiful picture! Let’s hope we have some magic again in 2020. God jul!

    • Thank you, Anuscka. Snow really add magic to the landscape. We could do with some before spring sets in all of a sudden 🙄
      Wish you a merry Christmas!

  2. I love the snow too. Over here in New Zealand we have just had our longest day and it is summer and nice and warm. Have a lovely Christmas.

    • It’s great to hear from you, Roger. Funny to think that you have just the exact opposite of our season 😊
      A very merry Christmas to you to!!
