Your mind a landscape of new snow

The cold weather generates interesting ice formations near flowing water. Now that the work week is over, I'm looking forward to the weekend. Weather is warming up a bit, up to -8 °C, and the conditions should be good for long walks in forests and swamps. And the length of day is 7 h 18 min, which means that there isn't such a hurry any more to get back before it gets dark.

The depth of snow is now at 4-5 cm, but there was enough new snow during the week so that old tracks should be mostly hidden. A fresh winter landscape is waiting for exploration...
