A fox has been roaming around during nighttime, looking for something to eat…

Christmas is coming up fast, and I’d like to wish all my friends in TrekNature the best Holidays ever!

I will also take this opportunity to thank you all for advice, support, encouragement, but above all for a lot of fun during the year that is soon to end!

Take care all… Stay happy!

And it would be great if everyone commenting says the seasonal greeting in their own language, whatever is celebrated this time of year!

In Norwegian it is: GOD JUL!

Thank you Pablo, for the Christmas greeting and good wishes. I like the simplicity of your wintry composition. There is something so refreshing about blue sky and white snow. It is a nice sharp image with great exposure. I love the curve of the tracks leading us into the scene and making us wonder just what is over the hill.

Bonjour Pablo,
Joyeux Noël ŕ toi Pablo et merci pour tes voeux.
Traces in the snow have something fascinating. I look often at them, wondering which animal could have passed. On your picture it is also somehow symbolic for the New to come. What is behind, we don't know. I hope it will not be to bad for all TN members.
Best regards

Thank you for those kind words and festive greetings, Pablo!
Your shot, with the deep white snow and clear blue sky certainly conjures up the cold memories of winters gone by! I love the weather when it is like this! Unfortunately it's cold and grey and damp at the moment!

Merry Christmas,
Bev :-)

Hi Pablo,
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you.
Wonderful shot and an outstanding place and setting presented. Awesome blue sky and perfectly exposed snow and it is so difficult to say whose footsteps it is - maybe of a camera welding man's. Great view. Excellent POV to portray this charming ambience and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Pablo

Very nice snowy landscape again from you, my friend!
I really like how the foot-prints of teh fox lead the eye towards teh horizon...you've integrated them well into the composition.
I only wish i will have some nice snow followed by some great sunny days as the ones i see here so that i will in return have the chance for such shots, too :)
Nice work!

Bravo, TFS and Happy Holidays, my friend!

Hi Pablo,
A merry Christmass and a very Goodyear to you as well. We have to touch bases this year, since I am comming to Norway this summer.
The roaming fox has created a very beautiful photo. The slight curve in its prints and the fact that they disappear of the crest and behind the rock makes a person wonder what to see.

Hi Pablo,
Little bit late, so take my message into Your mind when the time will be there within 6 months: Boldog Karácsonyt! In Hungarian: merry Christmas.
Fantastic winter pic, perfect exposure, sharpness, details. As I mentioned under another pic of You: the red fonts break the color harmony of the photo. Otherwise an awesome image.
Congrats and tfs. Best wishes, László
