Photographer's Note

This was NOT a day in December but just an ordinary fall morning in October when you normally would go hiking even at this altitude (a little over 2000 m). Of course I had planned taking out my hiking boots doing some workout on steep hills in the area before I became a coach potato for the rest of the winter :)))) Instead we had the first really heavy snow fall with everything involved that makes winter hard sometimes like the montage of chains trying to make the car move standing in the middle of the street, slipping and sliding around on icy roads. But, you know, one morning I saw some sunlight through the curtains This picture was taken on Chaeserrug mountain, after we had taken the first cable ride of the day, totally alone floating to the top. No chance to do anything up there other than taking a coffee break in the restaurant waiting for the snow machines making some of the terrain accessible also without skis. Chaeserrug is a fairly good skiing area a little over an hour driving from Zuerich not hard to imagine that it gets pretty crowded on Sundays during winter.
