Another week with snow

December 10, 2010

It has been a cold white week. Colder and more white than the southern part of Greenland!

The sun has not been shining the first part of the week. This is a view from Jelshøjvej just outside Mårslet:

Visibility was low and it was very misty.

But yesterday the sun was shining. The snowy landscape became quite different and beautiful:

From Vilhelmsborg I went back towards Mårslet along Langballevej, here near where I was in November:

This morning frost gave everything an enchanting white glow.

    more beautiful images of your very cold, snowy and white country, am enjoying them very much, here, tomorrow it is to be 30+ Celsius, such a contrast, all the best…

      Pete, i’m glad you enjoy a little cold and snow from the far North down there in the middle of summer 🙂 – I’m looking foreward to “your” weather – and wishing you a nice, sunny and warm Christmas!!

    Could be a scene straight out of New England! We have not yet seen a stitch of snow and as a gardener, this has me a bit worried. It has been so very windy and cold and when that happens, the landscape suffers from dehydration. But, I digress.

    You have such a subtle hand with your camera. Meaning, at first glance, you think ‘huh, a snowy road’. BUT then, you see the symmetry of the trees and realize, THIS was no accidental composition.

    Very clever, Truels! 🙂

      Yes it looks like a white Christmas again now here….. Tracy, I am so happy reading your great comments, you are very kind 🙂

    Hello and thanks for stopping at my blog. I love these beautiful pictures of winter. The road and trees go very nicely with the snow.

      James, you have a great blog – which I will visit again! Thanks for you comment here, I’m glad you like my “cold” pictures…

    An unusal view of Jutland – at least for me. Take care!


    • December 13, 2010 11:28 pm

      This is unusual weather here – we had 3 months like this (January-March) and now November till………????!

    … gut it looks sooo beautiful, especially the last three pictures.
    I will gladly trade you some of our sunshine for some of your snow 🙂

    Those photos from November are lovely with the sun and blue sky!


    • December 13, 2010 11:35 pm

      The 3 photos here are captured last week – but the 2 first in my post “King Winter – early arrival 2010” were from November 27 – and they are all captured along the same road (Langballevej).

    Excellent shots! That looks like amazingly thick snow, judging by the first and second photos! The middle shot is my favorite, though: What beuatiful textures you’ve captured in the snow! The footsteps add an element of mystery, too… The last is magical, too! We’ve only had our first major frost last night!


    • December 13, 2010 11:37 pm

      Thank you for your comments, Kai! The textures in the snow is made by the wind – and the footsteps are from a hare…

    Beautiful images Truels.
    I were close to your home the other day, and it looked just like on the last two images. Very beautiful!


    • December 13, 2010 11:41 pm

      You were close to my area last week – and I was close enough to your area Saturday to meet you 🙂

    Such wintry photos! Your roads look so narrow, Truels. I love that second one with the lone tree and the car approaching – it seems to tell a story.


    • December 13, 2010 11:44 pm

      I am lucky to live a place, where there are no big roads and highways nearby. And yes, the mood was so different the two days with fog – and clear sunshine.


  10. December 12, 2010 11:41 am

    amazing all serie !!! great framing and light !!!!


  11. December 13, 2010 1:18 am

    Truels, these snow photographs are very beautiful. I love how you made ordinary road shots look fascinating. And the trees with frost! Beautiful!


  12. December 13, 2010 10:07 am

    I love all of them but the first one is first ! A lovely silence . A misty unknown end … you think this is life : you should go ahead , although it is cold sometimes but full of beauties .. Although you know anything abouth the end but the way is wonderfull …


    • December 13, 2010 11:52 pm

      That silent, misty mystery leading to some unknown place was exactly what I also found fascinating with that photo!!


  13. December 13, 2010 2:19 pm

    Nature painted in monochromes with a splash of sunlight for color. I believe that kind of frost is called hoar frost.


    • December 13, 2010 11:56 pm

      I had to get the Dictionary here, and yes – it had been hoar frost here, which painted everything white.


  14. December 14, 2010 9:18 pm

    Truels, this first picture is really amazing… The country road leading to somewhere unknown into the mist and deep snow ! What a sight and what an amount of snow you had ! A wonderful series of pictures and landscapes. Great for Nordic skiing, surely. Are those your steps on pic no 2 ? 😉


    • December 15, 2010 11:49 am

      Thank you, Isa. Many Nordic skiing Danes enjoy the weather very much. My leg is not in shape for that – so I walk – I tried a few times to walk beside the road or path – and had big problems in the more than ½ meters’ snow…. – and it is my steps on no 2 🙂


  15. December 15, 2010 9:26 am

    Those last three photos are awesome. It is nice to see how much sun can have effect to the scenery.


    • December 15, 2010 11:51 am

      That is what I thought posting both the misty and sunny contrasting photos 🙂


  16. December 15, 2010 7:33 pm

    It definitely looks very cold, but also incredibly beautiful. I love all your views of your winter wonderland.


    • December 16, 2010 9:58 am

      I appreciate your comments, Frances. Some days this weather is wonderful – but often it is not so nice with all this cold and ice….


  17. December 16, 2010 6:43 am

    Beautiful captured Truels, I’m snow envy here. It’s like a winter wonderland in these images.


    • December 20, 2010 10:56 am

      It is very beautiful in such clear and sunny weather, today we have the samen weather here – but now it is time for buying Christmas presents instead of capturing white photos 😉


  18. December 20, 2010 4:04 am

    Nice use of leading lines in this series. I really like the frost, beautiful.


    • December 20, 2010 10:58 am

      Yes, all this snow and frost will gve us another white Christmas here in Denmark…..


  19. December 24, 2010 2:43 pm

    Nice photos, but now that we have snow it’s not that great. Merry Christmas Truels.
