Baby, It’s Cold Outside
One of the things I most looked forward to about moving to Lithuania was a white Christmas. The Lithuanian countryside is stunning when it is covered in snow – vast open fields surrounded by forests and dotted with deer. It doesn’t get more picture-perfect. This year, though, the weather has decided not to play ball. It was a balmy 9 ˚ C (48 ˚ F) here today – about 15 degrees above what would be expected in mid December.
We’ve had very little snow so far this year. It snowed just twice, and on both occasions the snow was gone within a day or two. From the perspective of managing heating bills and getting safely from A to B this is good news, but I still miss the stillness and serenity that come with the snow. We have, however, had a few beautifully frosty days. Frost typically comes when the skies are clear, when the low sun makes everything twinkle. Here are a few of my favourite photos taken at sunset just a few days ago.
I still have a small number of my 2016 Calendar showcasing 13 of my most popular photos available, now at the reduced price of €9.99 (plus P&P).
