Autumn first snow; to me, always the most welcome, both for the change it brings to the dull (a little boring in the long run) landscape well into October, and – above all, I’d say – because it lets the colors of the underlying vegetation shine through, lighting them up, saturating them in contrast with the remaining monochromatic scenery. The best comes when it snows on the birches still covered in yellow leaves, making them monuments to grace shining with pure gold. It wasn’t the case this year, sadly: we said goodbye to the last leaves already a couple of weeks ago.
