The snake in the valley

Hello everybody. I’m back from the Swiss Alps (oh boy, we had still a lot of snow) and I hope you all had a nice time in the meantime. This picture is still one of the last winter. And although we already have spring in our area, I still wanted to show you this one here. I was hiking in an avalanche area and was already on the way back home when I saw from high up on the mountain, how a dense fog meandered through the valley. And it was amazing to observe how the fog was nimble as a cat and supple as a snake gaining more and more of the area down in the valley and sometimes snaking slowly away over small hills. I would say the fog was like a snake covered with icing sugar on this cold winter’s day! And finally when I reached the valley I could make some shots and I hope you like this one here!
