Foto Vrijdag 2.51 White Christmas

Winter Wonder
The snow we’ve had this week seems to be sticking around, even though we haven’t gotten more in the last few days. So it might not be fresh snow, but it looks like we’ll still manage to have a white Christmas tomorrow; a rarity for this native Floridian. We went out earlier this week to do a bit of shopping and photographing. Utrecht is beautiful anyway, and with the snow, it becomes even more picturesque. The domtoren, as you can see, was particularly lovely, with the snow dusting the edges of the Gothic tracery and the icy tree branches framing it all. It looked like something out of a fairy tale, or Narnia, perhaps!

  1. There is definitely something Narnian about this shot! I am pleased that the snow is still almost intact – Christmas looks more real if it’s a white one! Myself coming from the southern hemisphere where it’s summer at this time of the year, a White Christmas is something that I only used to see in fairytale books and in films …
    Merry Christmas! (again! hehe)

    • Exactly! I grew up close enough to the southern hemisphere for a white christmas to be unheard of! I wish we’d gotten a bit more fresh snow, just to pretty things up a bit.

      Merry Christmas!
