Wonders of Nature: Snow in the Distance

Wonders of Nature: Snow in the Distance

The peaks of Kocna and Grintovec, Slovenia, Europe

After a few days of cloudy weather and occasional drizzle we had sunny weather the other day. I went for a walk along my usual path. I took the camera thinking: »What could possibly surprise me today? The hoarfrost is gone and there is no snow yet. The autumn leaves have fallen off of branches.«

I was rotating my head and pausing along all the way to no avail. In the end I smiled thinking: »Well, I guess it’s a no-miracle-day today.« Then, towards the end of the part of the path that leads through the forest, approaching the urban finishing part of my usual route, I glimpsed my miracle (see photo). Snow in the distance. The snowed-in peaks of Kocna and Grintovec, peaking out behind a local hill covered with grass, like a scout of the coming winter, destined to set in officially on Wednesday, the 21st of December.
