the frozen valley

shadow and sunlight
The valley covered in rime

Once again the amazing difference between the valley lying in dark shadow, covered in rime, and the sunny mountain range behind. Above the Green Lake, Styria, Austria.

frosted forest, sunny rocks
The difference between sun and shadow

On a frosty December morning, high above the Green Lake, the frosted forest, still in the shadows, and the rocks behind, bathing already in full sunlight.
