Тонкий момент!

Konstantin Khrapko on October 21, 2010

Спасибо. Ума не приложу, как это получилось. Тень от утреннего бокового солнца или еще от какого-нибудь источника тепла?

Спасибо, друзья! Thank you dear friends! Timo Rossi, no one yet came up with satisfying explanation. I think there was some heat source at the side and the shadows of the arrows protected some of the snow (that originally filled the whole space between) from melting. Or they were shielding snow from wind that blew the rest away? Neither sounds compelling though. Any ideas? Konstantin
