Studded tires

My studded tires have given me strength and courage. We haven't got any snow yet but there have been mornings with frost and ice. I'm so pleased when I have the time to take the bike instead of the car. I know that there will become mornings with inches of snow but I hope I will make it at least some days in a week even though.

One more chance

It was in the afternoon and the sun went down from the sky to a very low level and caressed the treetops. The sunbeams left a magical light on the steeple. I was hurrying up, running on the frozen fields as the sun beguine to get down behind the forest. I felt like I was competing against the Sun herself. When I was close enough I raised the camera and pulled the trigger....

...nothing happend!

The battery was empty! I had been out for a while and it was a little chilly so I guessed that was the reason to the quick "quietus" of my battery. Oh, I was so disappointed that I had missed that chance.

Than something got into my head, some kind of fighting spirit. I didn't want to lose. I picked out the battery from the camera, opened up my jacket and placed it on the naked skin in my armpit. I stood there for some minutes and saw the sun getting lower and lower, but before it disappeared totally I took out the battery quickly to avoid the chill outside my jacket. And, pulled the trigger again.... worked!

But only once, but that didn't matter to me because the sun vanished and I returned home as a winner.
