First snow this year
Photo made in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands – Oranjepark (2008)

A whole class of children having fun in the snow under the friendly cover of a giant tree – I just couldn’t help but to stand still and look at this joyful moment… and make a photo of them… :)
Oranjepark, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands

Where I live, the snow didn’t stay longer than a few minutes… but a 3-hours journey with very unreliable – winter-struck – public transport, brought me into winter-wonderland :D
