Snow tornado

After lunch, I decided to go for a walk and enjoy the beautiful weather. For hours I dwelled through the woods, most of the time wading knee-deep through the snow. It was tough walking, but it felt great being out there all alone. Or should I say almost alone? For during the entire hike, I was accompanied by the roaring wind and the sun rays shining through the trees.

On my way home, I passed through a big open field where the wind was blowing fiercely, the most powerful gales blowing big clouds of powder snow from the ground into the air. When I had crossed the field and was about to go into the forest again, I turned around for a last peek, just in time to see a snow tornado literally following in my footsteps. What a sight!

Almost home, I passed an old farm where I stood for a while watching the snow being blown of the roof of one of the barns.


  1. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I probably should have left you a comment long ago when I starting following your blog. I'm Jessica's Aunt in the States. I've really enjoyed your pictures and lovely commentary this last year or so. Linda

  2. Thanks for the insights to your life in the woods. Wish I had your life. I love winter myself but here in America this year it has been almost nonexistant. Keep the posts coming.

  3. Linda: Thanks for the compliment.

    Tim: You're welcome. Thus far, winter in Sweden had been mild, too. Although it's freezing and everything is beautifully covered with snow, Jack Frost hasn't shown his teeth yet.


Thank you for following my blog.
