Winter returned to Europe. The roads of many parts of Europe are covered by snow and ice, mainly in the mountains regions.
Car drivers are exposed to many dangers, careful drive is required.
I’ve taken this photo in Southern Black Forest in Germany at an attitude around 1,000 meters above sea level during winter late afternoon.

Today's neighbor to the TE.
I see that not only the winter attacked Poland. Nice panoramic frame, a beautiful shade of color.

This looks like a very common winter scene, one that I don´t particularly enjoy too much myself. But this capture is well composed with the snowy road curving here. But I strongly recommend spiked tyres here!

Very bitter cold and miserable day it seems that you have captured the mood of the scene nicely, revealing total bleakness of the landscape. Light or no light - this is an amazing image but probably the worst conditions experienced. A well composed image with excellent focal point. Nice almost mono colour that adds to the image and atmosphere. Well done for braving it! TFS

Cet endroit est très beau et vous avez ajouté l'exposition et la beauté d'un bon cadre. Je l'aime.
En ce qui concerne, mon ami.

Un temps brumeux, maussade, grande difficulté sur les routes, cela ne donne pas envie de prendre la route sauf si nécessaire, le choix du N/B convient tout a fait ici

Salut cher Miro
Excellent snow scene. The heavy greys and the powdery snow are very attractive. I like the curve of the road, which guides the eyes through the frame superbly.

A very nice B&W photo. The compostion is excellent with the bending road that adds dynmics to the scene. A also like the mood with the slightly misty weather. TFS and have a nice day.

Hi Miro !!

Thanks for a precious note, appreciated.
Germany has road built to a weather like we see here, diff. driving it is. Though, I myself never drove in a snow-storm so heavy.
B&W by choice was the perfect decision, and clarity is best taken in such conditions.
