La rivière est gelée mais les arbres n'ont pas encore endossé leur épais manteau de fourrure blanche !
Bon début de semaine lumineuse et chal-heureuse!

@thami: The snow is still very low. Journal of frosty snow does not stay in the trees, but when you get more snow are also the snow-covered trees.

When rivers freeze over it surely is very very cold.......brrrr

@Curly: It's great to live in a country with four seasons. The days get shorter in a cool until Christmas and then they start to get longer. Shortest, the day is here for about six hours. In Lapland, there are areas where it is dark for almost two months.

Not long till you get the funny bridge then.

@The Mouse: Maybe not.

I like that you included the church in this scene. I am amazed that the river is frozen. We live on the Delaware River and because of its strong current it never freezes, just gets big blocks of ice floating in it.

3 Dec 2012 6:49pm

@Ruthiebear: River is small and quite shallow. It quickly cools, and when the flow is slow freezing to take place after a few cold day.

Sof from Neuchâtel, Switzerland

Cela gèle déjà, superbe

3 Dec 2012 7:46pm

@Sof: Yes it freezes quickly.

Patrick M. from Lille, France

Great, we will soon spin over

3 Dec 2012 10:34pm

@Patrick M.: I hope so.

Nelida De La Fuente from Tres Arroyos, Argentina

That risk the mobilization ... In the frozen ground ... looks like a skating rink. Excellent capture with a good ambience and cool tones. A hug.

4 Dec 2012 4:43am

@Nelida De La Fuente: You are right. The ice is still too thin. If the cold weather continues, gets to go out on the ice.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Don't skate on it yet! Neat shot with the light on the tower.

4 Dec 2012 5:34pm

@Steve Rice: No I Don't skate on it yet!
