Guy, you're killing me with those images, especially the last one of the glorious sunset.

I could happily trade butterflies for a handful of those natural events (and scenery), especially with the knowledge that spring would see me sharing my free time with such beauties as Large Tortoiseshell, QoS Fritillary and Clouded Yellow (amongst others!)

You are blessed! :)

Just brilliant. "Ice and fire" and definitely one to stick on the wall :)

Cheers,

Thanks Mike, Dave and Pete. That sunset was no trick of the camera - quite remarkable to behold, though only for a few minutes.

Still on the gif theme, here is one of the Christmas tree in Villars-sur-Ollon. In fact, here are two - so they might take some time to load. The first is as it came out of the iPhone. The second I split, cleaned up a bit (to remove a distracting, jumping light in the background) and added text to. I split it using the free online resource at https://ezgif.com/. Then I removed the distraction frame by frame on my computer, uploaded the frames to the same website and added text. This process didn't seem to lessen the quality of the whole.

And here's the weather on our forest walk today:

Minnie loved it!

We're now doing our best to catch up with the snow fall - though not quite up to your standard yet! Super animated Christmas tree :)

Nice job with the tree Guy, I would love to walk down that forest path. :)

For once, Guy, most of us here in the UK have seen similar scenes (though I personally have not).

Good job Minnie has got dark ears, otherwise she'd look like a big lump of snow. :)

Thanks Mike, Andrew and David.

Apart from a brief episode when the Föhn blew and quite a lot of snow melted, we've had full-on winter here for the last few weeks. I don't know how Minnie manages to scuttle around in the snow without getting cold - it doesn't seem to bother her at all.

If anyone's gambled on a Christmas ski break, the gamble's paid off! The pistes are open and the installations working.

And a merry Christmas to you and Minnie.
Another day, just before Christmas, worth celebrating is the passing of the shortest day !.

Great snow scenes,
Trevor.
