Snow evokes in us a sense of childlike wonder. It paints white over the scenery, using a thick brush and wide strokes. The snowy blanket snuggles everything and puts life itself to a cozy nap. That blanket is woven out of many snowflakes, each of which is unique, landing right where it did for a reason. We know the reason but can’t explain it except — it’s there to create a winter wonderland
White Winter Landscape
Snow and winter take your breath away for all sorts of reasons. The sharp chill enters the lungs with each gasp to clear the mind and refresh the body. Thoughts become evident and you lose all the emotional baggage. There is no past or future, only right now, with each step being its own success.
The clear, fresh air bites and nips any exposed skin but once you start moving, you can barely feel it. The blood starts surging and the muscles feel invigorated. You start feeling invulnerable plowing through snow and striking a brand new path in the wild. You feel your heart pumping. if you have an eager Akita on your side you feel like you are staring in an epic adventure. The sights complete the mood, making the moment as memorable as it gets. Forget about recording it just seize the moment.
When the snow is falling and the wind is blowing, it’s hard to imagine anything else. The cold numbs the mind and body, but it also leaves room for reflection. In the quiet of winter, we can think more clearly about our lives and where we want to go. We can appreciate simple things, like a hot cup of coffee or a warm fire. And we can reflect on the bigger picture, like what really matters to us in life.
Winter is a time for growth and new beginnings. Just because the days are shorter and the weather is colder doesn’t mean we can’t make the most of it. Embrace the winter and all it has to offer. Let it be a time for reflection, growth, and new beginnings. Let it be a time to appreciate the simple things and to focus on what really matters. Let winter take your breath away.
The Troodos mountains are a sight to behold in the winter, when snow covers the peaks and valleys like a white sheet. The road winds through the hills, providing stunning views at every turn. If you’re looking for an escape to a winter wonderland, take a drive through the Troodos mountains!
Mighty trees proudly jut out from under their snowy makeover and nod their heads as we drive along. Their entourage of shrubs looks like silhouettes of a crowd, standing by with dignified grace. They cherish the snow too and invite you to come out of the car and join in on the fun.
