One picture or more. From time to time (16) A winter invitation. Blogger's Sunday Walk.



I usually have one post edited per week. This time, it's all about a special happening and a participation to a meme, titled so lovely "Blogger´s New Year Walk"  and started by a blogger friend on "Vilt og vakkert" blog (Wild and Beautiful). Also, in invitation she mentioned: that the idea is "to join BSW 2017 with the hope that many accept the challenge and document what happens four Sundays a year."
Motto is: "Put on your walking shoes, skates, ski - whatever, bring with your camera or paper and pen and document what you see during the Winter walk and link to my blog!"

A few weeks ago, I said that I'll join BSW. So, here, it is my walk!

As forecasted, the first snow of the year came on january 6th. Because, I have no idea how much this winter scenery will last, I took the camera and on this occasion, I tried to capture some pretty images. 

But first, I put my boots and I went into the most near park to observe the nature at a cosy walk in order to admire the wintery scenes..
Events?  Lots of snowflakes, mallard ducks, gulls and snow.... (*-*)
 Oh, and for sure, lots of playful children with their snow sleds down the hills. What about the weather? A cold, frosty weather, with freezing temperatures and some harsh winds spreading the snow (if I can describe like this), but, at least it is really worth it to explore the neighbourhood area, even in these wintry conditions.
 And let me say, that this kind of event, it is for certain, one of the events of which we can remember long, since for so many years, we did not had such white winters. 
Hoping that you've enjoyed my walk in my neighbourhood and on the park alleys! See you soon with a new post. Till then best regards!

Motto: 
"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

Be joyful, amazing and never give up to smile!

Stay positive, today, tomorrow and always! 

Rămâi pozitiv, astăzi, mâine și întotdeauna!
So, very thankful, each and every day, to be inspired...
All is well...

  1. I'm so glad Alexa that you have been able to experience snow for a long time. Thank you for taking me along with your beautiful walk. You have caught the essence of snowy winter - all the beauty and the children's fun. Vivaldi is icing on the cake!

    1. Indeed, i'm so glad; it is so nice to see so much snow, again. In the'80-'90, the winters were much interesting and much heavy as weather conditions than today. In the last years we had a very confusing weather due to the climate changing, I guess. There was some snowflakes, but for only a couple of days, and frosty cold tempratures.
      From 6 january, the snow is now all over. I think, too, that the children are the ones to really enjoy of this snowy time! Many thanks and a wonderful week to you!

    1. O priveliste tare frumoasa, datorita ninsorii; speram ca zapada sa reziste ceva mai mult decat in alti ani. In ultimii anii, nu am prea avut ierni, ca altadata. Mai mult ger. ;)
      O zi buna si saptamana, asemenea!

  3. Such wonderful photos, dear Alexa! The park is surely beautiful also without snow, but it became magical after the snowfall. I hope the cold weather and snow will not cause more victims.
    I have never seen so many ducks in one place. :)
    The quotation you shared is one of my favourites.
    Have a happy week ahead! Hugs!

    1. Many thanks, Sara. Like I said before in a previous comment, in the'80-'90, the winters were much interesting and much heavy as weather conditions than today. But, in the last years we had a very confusing weather due to the climate changing, I guess. There were some snowflakes falling between december-march, but for only a couple of days, and frosty cold tempratures. Now, the snow is everywhere and brought lots of difficulties, even causing victims in some regions as I saw at Tv.
      Hoping that it will be all right, we must think positive! Have a lovely week ahead, too.

    1. M-am bucurat de revenirea ninsorilor, aproape ca in vremurile copilariei! Erau nameti si se faceau cazemate, se ridicau oameni de zapada, erau batai cu bulgari de zapada. Abia asteptam primele ninsori.
      Sper ca am surprins din bucuria celor ce s-au incumetat sa iasa chiar din primele momente, in ciuda frigului si a vantului ce vintura zapada!
      Salutari, asemenea, cu toata afectiunea si imbratisari pentru scumpa doamna!*-*

  7. Heisann, great, great, great Alexa! Thanks a lot for your wonderful BNYW- documentation! You have all the snow I miss. We usually have snow here during the winder, last week snowflakes fell, but melted and disappeared the day after. We are used to snow and it is very strange to have green fields in January.
    You have taken a lot of marvellous shoots and I think many people had fun in the snow, many old people might not overcome the cold ... that´s the sad story! Have more nice days ;:OD)

    1. Thank you very much! It happened so nice to snow and to be possible for me to make this long walk, despite the cold and harsh meteorologic conditions. It heavy snowed, but I took more than 270 photo instants to capture the beauty of this special event. Why, I call it special? It's such a long period of time since I haven't seen a white winter like in my childhood years and that it means the end of '70-'80, till to the '90. Now, it is really too cold with freezing temperatures that brought to severe hard times for so many people around the world who were experienced this challenging weather. A weather absolutely confusing due to the climate change, I guess. I watched at tv and have seen lots of reports, documentaries and comments regarding the forecast, the climate change and the relation with the local weather changing. But after all of these, we must be/remain positive.
      Once again, I thank you for the invitation and i'm glad that I had the chance to join your BSW. Hopefully, if it will be possible and I'll continue to show some more of these wintry aspects in the next posts. Till then best regards.

  16. Excelenta ideea imortalizarii "plimbarilor de iarna". :)
    Imi plac foarte mult fotografiile tale, zonele alese si modul in care combini totul. Cand vad astfel de fotografii mi-e si mai ciuda ca nu reusesc performanta de a face macar fotografii mediocre, sa imortalizez zapada care-mi place atat de mult. :)
    Cat mai multe plimbari minunate iti doresc sa faci. :)
    Iti doresc, cu drag, zile fericite! <3

  18. I am not sure I understand totally what is happening but I have to say that I am intrigued. I go on lots of walks at lunch hour in my city and also go running on the streets and trails near town and I always take my camera. So I might have to check out BSW. That said, your photos are intriguing, mysterious, and beautiful!!

  19. Alexa WOW, wonderful wintry, snowy shots! I have so many favorites here but those at the end with the snow falling are magical. I'd love to use these as an overlay to some of my fun photo projects! Great job, as usual, my friend! Have a good weekend and keep warm! :)

  21. A wonderfully snowy walk Alexa. Like you we did not have much snow late winter and in my area, snow sports are very popular. One of my best childhood memories is of going sledding. And sometimes eating snow with my sister. LOL. I love to visit your beautiful city and country and thank you so much for linking into Nature Notes...Michelle
