This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “ambience”.
Here, the sun rise lifted up the felt temperature of the snowy, cold landscape and made me feel a little warmer.
Take care have a great weekend!

Beautiful shot. Here I made tea because the sun isn’t out and it’s cold. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks, Janet. Enjoy your tea.
Have a great weekend, too. How’s winter currently where you are (Was it Colorado? I’m not sure)
We’re in Naperville, a Chicago suburb, so it’s a bit like Wisconsin. We don’t have any snow, though, which is sad to me. What’s winter without snow? We’ve had some frigid weather and, of course, plenty wind to chill things down even more, no matter the real temperature.
here, winter was quite warm until now (around 0°C). Expect a few cold days with -8°C (17°F). We benefit from the gulf stream in Europe. The short distant of about 300-400 km from the coast keeps us warmer the i.e. in Poland, Czech Republic or Ukraine but also brings some problems with serious thunderstorms (or snowstorms in winter). Thursday evening we got a weather warning. Parts of France are without electric power (and no heating because they have electric heatings). Fallen trees are blocking streets and railways. Several electric wires of the railroads are cut.
I guess I’ve forgotten exactly where you are as well. But being without electricity in winter is no joke. Electricity in France is expensive. I know because my s-i-l and b-i-l live there. They have a lovely wood-burning stove! 🙂
I’m here in Germany, in the Ruhr area, near Cologne and Düsseldorf (about 50 km east). Belgium and The Netherlands are not far away.
Having a wood-burning stove is great. Beside the special ambience it makes, it helps when the heating is not working properly. Although, I like the open fire, we don’t have one.
The problem we had with the fireplace (and as I understand it, with fireplaces in general) is that they let too much heat escape. With our stove in the fireplace, everything except the pipe leading up from the stove was blocked off, so all the heat stayed in the stove or was blown out with the blower. I knew someone years and years ago who lived in a two-story cabin with vents so that both floors got heat from the fireplace/stove (don’t remember which they had.)
hmm, I don’t know. But, it seems true and logical. The fire has to heat up the stones and the stones are supposed to heat up the room afterwards and keep it warm, even after the fire is out.
Calm, eerie and so enticing… the snow, the sun, the warmth in spite of the cold… Good pick!
Thank you, Julie!
