And they promised a glorious sunny morning... by Rajmund67 And they promised a glorious sunny morning... by Rajmund67
The weather forecast said the morning on Sunday would be clear, sunny and frosty. Frosty it was, indeed. Together with a couple of friends I went to the Broumovské stěny in the Czech Republic, just across the border from my native Poland, to take a few shots of the sun rising over (hopefully) mist covered town of Broumov and of the frost-covered rocks and trees in the picturesque Kovářova rokle ravine. Well, you can see how sunny it was...

Słuchając pogodynek, czy polityków słowo "obietnica" nabiera zupełnie nowego znaczenia... ;)

This is almost like it's a part of some great fantasy movie. It's so unearthly and sort of ominous! Love it! Love the pristine white of the snow and the heavy grey of the sky! :wow:

Well, I went there, first thing in the morning, hoping to find the rocks flooded in sunshine. As it turned out, there was no trace of sunshine anywhere to be seen, so I had to make do with what was avaiable. ;)

And the result is mind-blowing, truly! It looks so intimidating and all, with the ubiquitous snow and stormy sky and huge rocks. It must have been freezing over there. lol

It wasn't exactly tropics, that's for sure. ;-) Around -10 degrees Celcius, maybe slightly colder. :)

To be quite honest, this kind of temperature is not unusual in this part of the world (south-western Poland) in winter, especially in the mountains. It sometimes drops below -20 C. Fortunately, we've just entered a thaw period, so the thermometre outside my window says -2 C right now. However, before the spring comes we are sure to face some more of that no-nonsense frost outside. :)
If you have a look at some other photos in my gallery, you will find more "blood-freezing" pictures. ;)

Firstly, *gasps* your photos are breathtaking. they are the kind of photos one finds in the national geographic and it's likes! I'm a fan.
secondly, I'd love to comment on each and every one of them but I'm at loss for words.
Thirdly, You've been to some terrific places for sure. All those undulating plains, barren land and knotted trees and misty mountains - they actually made me speechless really!
:worship:
Lastly, I'm watching you. :)

Thanks a lot for all the nice words. And all the faves. :)
A lot of the places in my photos are actually around where I live - I've got some quite serious mountains within a half-hour drive from home. And the plains at the foot of the mountains, and the trees. I've travelled across Scotland quite extensively, so some fo them were taken there. Other than that, there was an odd trip to Greece or Spain, and as my camera is always there, I brought back some snapshots as well. I do not count the Czech Republic as "abroad" since I live virtually a stone's throw away from the Polish-Czech border. Close enough to go there and back within half a day, or wander into the Czech Republic by accident, while hiking in the mountains.
Thanks for the watch, I will try not to disappoint you. :)
