WINTER WONDERS

Snow Veyrier 1.3 bis

Snow Veyrier 2.2 bis
A few days after the big snowstorms we had, the weather got a little calmer. Although the temperatures were well under 0° C (32° F) the sun came out and we found ourselves immersed in it's wonderful rays. The sky was duck blue, the sun shining bright and the snow was scintillating -I must say that, lately, we have been very lucky to enjoy many splendid winter sunsets...

Then, a week ago, the weather changed radically. The thermometer rose (12° C/54° F), the foehn (a warm wind from the West) started blowing and unfortunately it started raining buckets. Within one day we switched from polar to Mediterranean temperatures. No need to tell you that all the snow melted away in no time.

Now, the landscapes have lost their coat of white. Anyw
ay, it seems that we will get more snow this week as it's going to get a lot colder. Anyway, while waiting for the next snowfall, I still have many pictures to share with you, so I hope they'll give you much pleasure...

On another note, I just wanted to let you know that:

. My article, pictures and "Chocolate Delight" have been featured in G2Kitchen's "Holiday Special". You'll learn some things on myself and will discover what Xmas represents for me.

. I have also taken part in Love Feast Table's "Cookie Exchange" by submitting my English "Coffee Kisses" recipe, a few photos and writing an article (regarding one special christmas holiday I spent in England).

. And least, but not last, you'll also find me talking about my Yule-tide and New Year feasts in an article on the French Larousse Cuisine site (in French only, but use Google Translate to read it in your own language).

I hope you'll enjoy my work!

  4. You always take such beautiful photographs! I love looking at them. We've been about 16°F below normal temps for us this time of year. It is cold at night near freezing, but we don't get any snow here in Florida. We should be in the 70s on Thursday.

    I love seeing the snow pictures!

  8. Vivant dans un pays de neige, j'en ai plus que marre des problèmes que cette dernière cause. Et malgré ça, tes photos me font jubiler en voyant les décors et ces compositions! Bravo à toi; ce n'est pas une mince tâche que de me faire baver devant des images enneigées!

  17. Rosa!!! I read the article on coffee kisses and your birthday falls on Xmas day? :) You are so talented and what a lovely childhood memory although I must say yes when I was little, no christmas parties and gatherings and we do get envious of other households.

    Still, I hope you have great time and for sharing all these lovely winter photos too.

    I have visited Stratford and I love it :D

  37. How great that your talent is being recognized in so many different places Rosa...you deserve it.

    About going to read the articles...I'll be honest about not being able to do it this week for sure. With all the overwhelming schedule's I'm handling right now...I will postpone reading your articles during a little time off in the next few weeks. I'd like to give it the attention it deserves...and of course, how lucky am I to be able to read Italian?

    Congrats on your endeavours and thank you for those gorgeous winter captures you continue to spoil us with;o)

    Ciao for now,
    Claudia
