I cannot tell you how much this image reminded me about the beginning verses of this famous poem:
"Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...

Sleep well, everyone!

Christmas Symbols

I thought you may want to listen to Bing Crosby playing "White Christmas" while reading this:

Bing Crosby - White Christmas

It's amaizing how these small symbols are always reminding us about this great holiday. Even when I look at this kind of images in the summer time, I instantly think about snowy, cold weather outside and warm, nice atmosphere inside, together with the loved ones...

And who can forget about the look of the Christmas tree (decorated with so much attention and care)?

And besides the great ornaments that totally bring a joyful note in the house, there are always presents waiting under the tree, when every child that's been nice all year gets a surprise... even the child inside each of us...

Merry Christmas Everyone!
And may your Holidays be filled with joy, happiness and very, very much love!

Snow and Ice…

Winter definitely has an impact on things... Nothing escapes its white cloak.

Even the tiniest drops that thought they were free and tried to escape are re-captured.

And all is turned into ice...

And... when you think about it, it all comes down to these little guys...

Finally winter is officially in! (in fact it has been for almost a week now...)
Well... finally I got the chance to take a few shots.

These shots are from Cluj-Napoca (that's the "Somes" river side).

These last 2 are from my hometown, Ludus (from my parents' house).

On The Road - Ep. 2

The second episode of the "On The Road" series...

"Feleacu" - the hill you need to climb & descend when entering Cluj (when coming on the E60 road from Mures).
- Autumn of 2006

A segment of road full of snow & ice on E60, near Ludus (that pick-up in front was dancing around in a pretty scary manner - fortunately nothing happened to it, but we did see 4 other cars in the ditches on only 5 kilometers of road that day...)
- Winter of 2007 (February)

The start of a very nice sunset, also on the E60 road near Ludus (too bad we ran out of battery power after this one...)
- Summer of 2008

Climbing up towards the "Tihuta" pass - the main route from Transylvania to Moldavia.
- Autumn of 2009 be continued...

PS. Sorry I did not take the time to search and include the Google maps URLs - I'll try to update later.

Verde ascuns...

Pe langa cele cateva instantanee anterioare (cu coloristica tipica a toamnei), am observat si mici pete de verde...

Stropi de toamna...

Weekendul asta am prins o zi tipica de toamna. Ceata deasa, luminozitate foarte slaba, umiditate si frig... mi-a adus aminte de poeziile lui Bacovia...

Am incercat sa surprind cateva elemente specifice acestui anotimp si mai ales specifice acelei zile. Ceata deasa care condensa peste tot a devenit tema principala...
