winter by Paul774 winter by Paul774
a simple title for a simple photo^^

I actually hate the cold, the snow, but when forced to join a skiing trip, i can't say no, then i see the nice sides of the winter :D

You see: A winter wonderland, up on the Feldberg, Black Forest Ski Resort.

Germany, Baden-Württemberg.

Wow wahnsinns Optik.
Ist das von diesem Jahr?? Ich verfalle hier schon in Depressionen weil es hier
den ganzen Winter 10°C plus ist und matsch statt Schnee.
Ich wünschte hier würde es auch nur einen Tag so aussehen Waaaah!

danke, nein, das war vor 1 oder 2 jahren, damals war's aber ähnlich wie jetzt wenn auch nicht ganz so schlimm, nur oben in den Bergen kam die Kälte und der Schnee; in der Rheinebene und in der Pfalz gab's nichts außer Regen und Matsch. :D Als Autofahrer muss ich leider sagen, so find cihs besser :D

I'm like you as far as Winter is concerned, but you've managed to capture a beautiful shot of the season. Was it snowing at the time, or was the wind blowing it around? It looks almost sparkly. ^^

Well, I've never seen Malta ;)

Never! Malta's too sunny for snow :P We barely get rain too... and temperatures usually hover around 10-15 degrees in winter :giggle:

I've only been abroad once to northern Italy, but it decided not to snow the week I was there :(

Thank you :) Definitely! I'll probably have the money to as well :giggle: Snow looks so gorgeous :3

Well I miss the sun and the summer! :sun:

Snow looks nice, but has many negative sides too.. say car crashs, colds, many people die each year in the traffic on frosted streets... It's snowing right now, and I can only sit in my house as i never go out when it's snowing.
I prefer the summer heat over the winter, in winter, i miss the flowers; everythings dead outside.

Sorry for my pessimistic attitude, i just had enough snow :D

I've always wanted to visit Malta,the fact it's a land without rivers made me really sad though :(

I too am a summer lover - I hate it when it gets dark so early in Winter :/ But that's alright - I get all hyped about seeing snow because I haven't had a chance to be bored of it like you have :D

Everything has its positive and negative features I guess - though you can take photos of snowflakes and beautiful scenery as you have done here :) Build snowmen too :dummy:

We have too many evergreen trees for things to be dead in winter :P Most of our trees and plants don't drop their leaves - though with a macro lens at hand now, I can't wait for the more varied flowers of spring!

Though in our case, very little rainfall also causes a number of skidding accidents because the dust/soil mixed with a little bit of water makes the roads really dangerous... and you guys have a lot of snow shoveling too I guess?

Yeah we don't have rivers :/ Or mountains... (just a hell load of hills though :P) - but what we do have is a ton of sea and beaches :D

Paul774 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
That's true, I'm really bored of it. Must be normal, people just need changes from time to time, I had enough winter :D We have -5°C every night and the days are just a bit warmer, it's been snowing for many days now, and only next week it will get warmer, spring finally comes here. :woohoo:

About the rivers, I saw your photo "The first river" that you took in Italy, made me sad somehow reading in the description that it was the first river you ever saw, I could not believe it and had to read the whole wikipedia entry about Malta, just to realize that there just are no rivers on that island :)

For me, a river is the ultimate natural beauty, only flowers are better. But you're so right pointing out you have the sea, that's what I don't have: beaches and the sea..The first time I was in the sea was 2 years ago, i was 24. Imagine you are 24 and you've never seen the sea or a beach, that's crazy isn't it :D

Sarah-BK Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Indeed. Here the changes are every hour of the day - you can never get bored! Sun can be shining, then suddenly it's cloudy and a few mins later it's raining. Next thing you know the suns out again :P That's for winter only though - Summer it's sun, sun and... sun! :D

-5 degrees is COLD. That's as far as I've gotten in my -°C temperature scale :P Agreed that will probably be enough to stop most things from happening outside! At least you look forward to spring and will gladly welcome it's arrival :dummy:

Mhm - sad isn't it? I had always wanted to see one with my own eyes. So I asked my uncle to take me to one :) Learnt that day that cycling without gloves in -5 is a bad idea too :P Pity there were houses and roads around... but it was still unbelievable. I'll be going to London for the first time next month but I don't think rivers are much better there :giggle:
Hahaha - building up your knowledge of our pretty little island huh? :P Well in winter there is this place called Chadwick Lakes where there are sort of moving streams of water, but it's basically rain water that collects there and eventually goes away, not a river. I haven't been there since I was like 5 or something...

You never swam in sea... for 24 years? WHAT? Haha crazy I agree :D - we take sea for granted - it's everywhere here :P And summer isn't summer in Malta without days swimming at the beach and barbecues at night! You do learn how to swim though, right?
It contributes to a lot of humidity though - that is what first greets you when you come here. Italian air is so much 'lighter' to breathe :P Summer becomes unbearable sometimes because of it :/ That's when swimming comes in handy!

Flowers never cease to amaze me :)

I've heard Germany is gorgeous - my boyfriend says that's the best place he's ever visited. My mother had gone some time in the past and loved it too - I'll make sure some day I come there :)

Sorry for replying late, but i'm king of procrastinating when it comes to replies and writing much :D

Hope you enjoyed your stay in London, and that river there is huge btw :D I also was there some years ago, and it was raining all the time...

Yup, i did NOT swim in the sea for 24 years and i actually never did it, i just ran into the ocean and left it again, as i don't swim well and i am afraid of sharks and other creepy things, manipulated by creepy movies :D I know how to swim but somehow it's hard for me as i had too little practice.

Building up knowledge is always good isn't it, especially for some aspiring geographer like me :D. I hope I can visit your island some day, i wish to visit every country in europe as soon as possible, that's one nice dream isn't it :D

Germany as the best place someone has visited? Sounds really flattering, i love it here too :D What place did he visit that he liked so much? I love the ALps here, the sea in Germany is not very special and mostly cool, but as i never went there i still hope i can somedays. Most people here hate it and try to escape to the south in the hot season, while the people from the south seem to hate the heat, all the highways to Italy, France and Croatia are stuffed with German cars each summer :D
