Welcome to TN Ivan, you did well to spot the snake and not tread on it! Perhaps if you had trampled it you may have had a nasty bite. I see the photo is scanned so I can't comment on what quality the original was, this is quite noisy and we can't see much of the snake. I realise that these are hard to capture so well done there.
this is Vipera ammodytes.
