Snow does its winter magic, transforming a dull day into a fairy tale setting.

I don't know how many times I've photographed this scene - it's like returning to visit an old friend - especially on such a wonderful winter's day.

Thanks for the visit, have a great day.

A beautiful scene Sinuhe. Has that special touch of magic that only a coating of snow gives. Lovely!

Seeing the old barn again is indeed like returning to visit an old friend and as Dave says, the snow gives that special touch of magic to the scene.  Winter has arrived in your part of beautiful Switzerland Sinuhe!  The link to the larger view provides amazing detail in this lovely image.

We may get a dusting this weekend.........

I love it. As an alternative, you could crop the very top to eliminate the white sky.

You are incredibly lucky to be able to often visit places of such beauty, this shot in particular perfectly expresses a magical atmosphere. Oh... how I wish I were there...
