Darkness and Light

In and out of sun

Today I went for a cross country ski here in Mellau, Austria. In December the Loipe/cross country trail is completely in the shadow of the Kanisfluh . Now the sun is slowly coming back and the contrast between the sunny and shaded views meant I spent too much time taking pictures and not enough concentrating on skiing!

The houses pictured are used when the cows are put out to low pasture in the late spring early winter. In winter they are closed and look very, very chilly!

Such a beautiful cross country trail.

The Kanisfluh casts a long shadow over this track in midwinter, but slowly the sun is returning!

Into the woods!
