Snow and light are both scarce these days, but the views are still excellent. Skis are (mostly) preferable for off-road transportation.

Beautiful, and evocative -- your comment completes it and makes it richer. The skis are the perfect touch.

Another beautiful photo your unique domain. Cross Country skiing is a sport to most, but to you it is clearly a way of life. Thanks for sharing this beauty.

It should start to lighten up after the solstice Snemann -- something to look forward to! Nice pastel colors in this photo.

Happy trails.

Thanks all, for having a look, and for the kind words. I thought this picture this picture might be liked by some of you, and I was right, it seems. but , having light conditions like these really is close to cheating. It was as fantastic as it looks.

Wonderful! One of my favorites (as long as you didn't go off the cliff! But who would be taking the picture, then?) Beth

you've just made me realise how close we are to the winter solstice - arctic night, but mid-day! - beautiful, of course, and nicely made with the addition of the skis. Lovely pic. Graham
