This curve has proven to be quite dangerous for the drivers coming downhill from the opposite direction, because of having too much speed and thus loosing the control of their cars on this curve, when the road has been icy. The telephone company had originally decided to uninstall these telephone cables in 2009, this has been the reason to let the trees grow too close to the cables. However, because of new possibilities and demands arising from the glass fiber network, those cables (or at least the poles) might be 'rescued'..

What a fantastic winter shot, Timo!

I can certainly see where this curve could cause trouble, no doubt!

It's a beautiful shot full of excitement and wonder.

It's a view I'm not very familiar with, living down in the south where we rarely ever see snow like this.

Thank you for sharing, and Happy New Year to you.

Best regards,

Mary Alice

Timo Rossi, beautiful landscape in predominantly white, I imagine the difficulty of travel over snow on a road like that! Here in Brazil we do not have the snow, is a tropical country. Congratulations on record! Greetings, from Brazil.
