The following photos were right across the Italian/Slovenian border in Italy. I thought this was a shallow lake but after checking the area on Google Maps, it appears that it was a flooded field that froze. Don't let the blue skies and sunshine fool you—it was really very cold.
As the wind blew, tiny ice crystals would blow off the trees and fill the air with what looked like millions of diamonds falling. What a marvelous, unforgettable sight! Wish you had been there to see it with me.
These are traditional Slovenian hay-drying racks. I love the way they look.
