Where the road ends, begins the snow land.
The Transfăgărășan (the most dramatic road from Romania) is usually closed from late October until late June because of snow. Depending on the weather, it may remain open until as late as November. It may also be closed, at times, because of weather conditions (it occasionally snows even in August). There are signs at the town of Curtea de Argeș and the village of Cartisoara that provide information on the passage.

An excellent shot of these pine trees covered with snow. I see so much snow that the road must be impassable. I like the B&W shot with the trees rising so high as if touching the horizon. A nice sharp composition .

Bonsoir, cher Ovidiu,
Ainsi s’en va la neige au loin,
En chaque sente, en chaque coin,
Toujours la neige et son suaire,
La neige pâle et inféconde,
En folles loques vagabondes,
Par à travers l’hiver illimité monde.
Un petit poème pour une bien jolie composition hivernale.

imponenti ed austeri questi alberi che affrontano il freddo inverno con impassibilità.

Aha ! The Transfăgărășan ! Now famous all round the world because of those nutters on TOP GEAR !
This scene though reminds me so much of when I used to ski, lovely deep snow and silence ... A magical combination.
Would you recommend a road trip to Romania - it seems like a fascinating place to visit ?

Lepo mesto i trenutak ...
Sneg je stigao i ukrasio drvece, zatrpao puteve i doneo probleme ...
Dobar snima i prikaz, lepa fotografija.
Dobar tekst, rad i kompozicija.
Sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Kod nas i dalje Sibirska zima, vanredna situacija, pada sneg.
Nice place and time ...
Snow has arrived and decorated trees, buried roads and brought the problems ...
Good recording and display, beautiful images.
Good text, work and composition.
All the best in the new week began.
With us still Siberian winter, emergency situation, it's snowing.

tutto il freddo della Romania ,che ben conosco, espresso in questo semplice e curato scatto con la neve che copre tutto.
Buona la definizione,
