[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken in the afternoon on 7th of December(the end of our way back was in the darkness). This is a view taken on the way to Grzes (1653m).
We have spent three days in Zakopane between 7th and 9th of December(Zakopane is known as a capital of Polish mountains). There were very cold - in the mountain between -15 and -20C degrees. But apart from cold it was beautiful. First snow, beautiful views, not many people.
On Friday we had 10 hours trek: started from Siwa Polana, went through Polana Chocholowska, Grzes (1653m), Rakon (1879m), Wolowiec (2064m). The way back, the same. We had to use all the winter equipment.
On Saturday we were only on Kasprowy Wierch (1987m) using cable car.
On Sunday we started from Krupowki in Zakopane, went near Wielka Krokiew, Dolina Bialego, Sarnia Skala (1377m), Dolina Strazyska, Dolina ku Dziurze and again Zakopane.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciej,

I'd buy that postcard in a second! Fantastic, creative composition with excellent sharpness and magical mystique. The undualating mountain chain and storybook forest create the feeling and the freshly fallen snow is the icing on the cake ,,,, or image in this case.


Hello Maciej

Beautiful landscape with all the elements. To me the dark clouds on the left and beautiful blue sky on the right also depict the fickleness of weather in the high mountains.

Hello Maciek

Hello Maciej,

Your framing is spectacular as it shows off all the scenic attributes of this gorgeous part of Poland.
I'm sitting here in a warm house, but I can definitely feel the crisp cold air just looking at your stunning image.

Hello Maciej
really a beautiful snowy forest landscape. Nice cool and pleasant scenery and exciting surroundings.
The pines are really exciting.
Well composed landscape.


Witaj Maciek,
Perfect winter landscape of the kind which I like so much! Snow covered spruces in the front, white mountains in the background, and all these crowned with beautiful lights. Thanks for this pleasure. Excellent photo.
