Seasons

Winter has been brief in Lithuania this year. We had unseasonably balmy temperatures in December and didn’t get any real snow until after Christmas. We had two or three weeks of what I consider a typical Lithuanian winter, with snowy fields, clear skies and a low sun that highlights the stunning scenery. Fearing it would not last, I got myself stuck in the snow trying to take photos while I could.

These are some of my favourites from that day. I love the mist that hung over the trees just opposite our house. I love the snow on the grasses by the side of the road. And I love the golden colours. Today I saw a flock of geese flying across the fields. Their presence at this time of year is unusual, to say the least. The seasons are changing.

    • Thanks Holly. Yeh, Lithuania really is beautiful, with the most amazing sunsets of any country I’ve visited. If you have a bucket list, Lithuania should definitely be on it!

      • That would have been a good chance to practise your Lithuanian – explaining that one 🙂

    • Those clear blue skies really do make it look summery outside. Until you stick your nose out, that is, and have it bitten off by Mr Frost! 🙂
