Winter Wonderland | Photo 52, 2020 Challenge

in #photo523 months ago

After a very busy week at work I haven't been much motivated to get out of bed on Saturday morning and drive in this gray soup of fog to find a photo motif.

Winter Wonderland
Photo 52, 2020 Challenge, Week Number 50
Winter Wonderland | Photo 52, 2020 Challenge

As this post matches this week's theme "Wintermas Freestyle!" of the Photo 52, 2020 Challenge, Week Number 50, I dedicate this post to that challenge.

After a quite demotivating while without seeing anything interesting, I decided to drive up a mountain to the village of Diex which is also known as Sun Village as last chance for a photo.

Shortly before I arrived at the village there was also all fog around and I could see hardly anything. But suddenly the tower of the church was peaking out of the fog and then the air around me has been clear :)

This village has got it's second name for a good reason, and this morning I have learned that once more.

Actually, I wanted to photograph this "island" in the clouds, but then the bird flew into the frame and because I tried to photograph it, the whole image got blurred. I like it somehow though, and I do know that my friend @papilloncharity wouldn't have had any problems getting a sharp photo of this big bird :)

The valley was covered by fog and clouds and above the village there was another layer of gray clouds.

The road I am driving on leads from the left behind the church and then through the forest to the right.

And at the end I want to show you a photo from this morning. I decided to get up there again, but this time a little bit earlier to catch a hopefully nice sunrise over the clouds. It began quite spectacular and if I find the time I'll post the other photos I took today during the coming week.

Well, that was it for today. I hope you like the views I had as much as I did.

It is now winter and foggy during the winter months of December and the coldest country in the region is snowing here.It is very nice to see the village covered with white snow.I am fascinated to see these beautiful pictures of you. Thank you friend ☁🌧👍

The winter is cold, but beautiful. The snow covers much of the country and all looks clean and tidy.
This is the same in the city 😃 until the snow melts and all turns gray 😌

Thanks a lot for your kind comment, @jaster, I always appreciate nice words 😁

Photo's look great, we still have not had very much snow yet here in the part of Alaska I live, still plenty of brown dead grasses poking way up. The last photo of the sunrise was great, but I also loved the post card look of the church and its fence line stretching into the snow, I think I prefer the closer up view of the church and village, but both are in my book pretty post card perfect or Christmas Card material.

In the valley we don't have any snow either, so I was very glad that up there was enough of it 😃

This little village is in the sun most times of the year, and living up there would be great ... quite a long drive to work though 😉

Thank you very much that you like especially these shots, @bashadow, wish you a nice rest of Sunday and a wonderful week ahead 🌞

That first few pictures look like scenes from a fairy tale movie, or Christmas cards. Simply magical! The rest of the pictures are breath taking too - as usual, with the utmost high standards. 👍

Thank you so much kindly, Vincent, your comments always do so good 😊

The view to this village and the church is almost always beautiful and you are very right, the image would make a quite nice Christmas card 😁

Hope you have a great week and you take care, my friend 🤗

Moving scenes each one capturing the essence of winter moods, most definitely a white winter wonderland.

One can easily imagine the sound of silence when snow lies deep on the floor, beauty of soft brush strokes giving sky a glow not seen except when the sun rises or sets.

Thanks for lovely wintry scenery, something I always enjoy when sitting "sizzling hot" down South Johann.

!BEER for me at the end of the day, hot coffee for you ☕️enjoy!

I would also love to have a !BEER right now, but a coffee is certainly the better decision 😉

Thank you very much for your nice compliments, Joan, I hope it's not too hot down there in the south, because it's quite cold and wintry up here 😊

Wow! Photos look like you were in a magical fairyland. The village with the church, with the two steeples, look like a Christmas card. If you send cards this would be a good one to have made or send digitally.

Wonderful landscapes dear Hannes and I’m glad you were able to see get such awesome photos from the drive up the mountain, even with fog hanging around. 😊

If I would live there I would certainly use the images as Christmas cards 😊

Thank you so much for your kind words and the goodies and the reblogging, dear Jo, I have had a very good time up there after driving around in the gray fog soup 😀

Wow. I usually do my curating/reading on my phone, but today I'm using PeakD on laptop. I've been missing out when it comes to your photos, I think. These are spectacular. Thanks for sharing these views.

I thank you very much for your very nice compliment, @cliffagreen, and I also thank you for reblogging my post 😀

After the colorful Autumn and the gray days when the colors are gone before the first snow falls, it was a great pleasure to see these beautiful scenes and walk in the snow. Of course, I love to share my views and experiences with you all 😁

Thanks a lot again, @cliffagreen, have a wonderful week 🔆😊 ... and take care.

Snow 🥰

And such a wonderful place to take photos ... I like everything .... I enjoyed these snowy landscapes ... And especially the sunrise ...🤗

Have a nice evening and wonderful week ahead @johannpiber ✨❄️😊

Down in the valley it's all gray, but the mountains are close and if you go there early in the morning you will have it all for you alone :)))

So you like the sunrise photo too? I wasn't that much impressed, but I have to admit I might have expected more ;)

Thank you so much for your always nice comments, @Suzana72, I really appreciate all of them 🤗
I'm already back at work and wish you a wonderful week too 🔆


Cheers and !BEER

You are lucky to be among the mountains, so you just go up and there is whiteness and sun 🤗
It is a special pleasure, to be alone up there ... Silence and light that appears slowly 🥰

And I believe that the village got its name for a reason. The sun is somehow always there.
I like the sunrise ... It could have been more beautiful, but compared to the white, it's really beautiful.

Most welcome@johannpiber 🤗

Thanks a lot 😊

I want your working day not to be hard and to be covered in snow😊... ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

I think, such quiet places have to be enjoyed alone - no talking needed 😉

It takes about 45 minutes driving till I'm at this village, but every meter is worth it 😊

Thanks again, @Suzana72, I wish you also an easy working day and maybe it will snow in your area too till next week 😀❄️


Cheers and !BEER

I agree with you, silence is important in such moments! 😉

And here I agree ... "every meter is worth it" 🤗

Nice evening ✨✨✨

Never give up the hope for White Christmas (nor for anything else) - if it doesn't snow this year, it will snow next year ... I remember walks in deep snow in town with my family on Christmas evening, and that's what I am hoping for every year 😊

Truly beautiful winter photos. That amazing view of Diex village is probably my favourite, but because all the photos are so amazing I cannot decide.

Have a great week @johannpiber. Cheers !BEER

This is only the beginning of hopefully a lot of such white photos, @cezary-io, at least I do hope that our winter will be white and very snowy that the people stay in their warm homes and I have the landscapes for me alone 😉

I saw that the place is not far from where I live...
Distanza
If I convince my family, we could also come to visit you, so I can finally offer you a fruit juice, instead of the usual virtual !BEER 😜

Cheers!

Haha, tell me when you are coming that I can book a flight to Africa ;) lol

Seriously, in these times I don't leave my country and try to stay as near to home as possible. That's not easy, because my favorite places are right across the border :|

Ahahahahhh, get a ticket for me too, that we have fun together in Africa! ❤️

Clearly, the grass is always greener on the other side! 😉 (except for the !BEER , of course!)

Could we just do lawn swaps instead of generating envy? 😜

These are really beautiful, I have never seen snow in real life, these pictures bring them closer to me. Do you really get enough sun to melt these snow away or how do you clear them off where you don't need them.?..

Never seen real snow? Wow, I love snow and fresh snow makes the landscape look so very clean... :)

We have special machines and shovels to get rid of the snow on the roads and driveways and other places, but the rest stays till it melts in February, March or later, depending on the area and how warm it is.

You were so lucky to find that big bird. Great capture! The sunlight on the peak of the mountain is very gorgeous. The sunrise with plenty of clouds in the last photo is very magnificent.
