When I was a kid I had my first encounter with snow in a small town in USA. I was about six or seven years old and, although I never saw snow since then, I could still remember the sound it made while walking on it. Its a very particular sound and it got stuck in my memory. This past weekend, I got to hear that sound again and it was just as I remembered.
I went on a roadtrip to visit the snow outside of Barcelona and it was amazing. The first stop was the beautiful town of Camprodon. The first thing you see when you star walking is the Ter river and the grand bridge over it. Is a stunning view completed by the many stores housed in old stone constructions, christmas music floating through the crowded streets and the smell of honey and smoke coming out of the fireplaces.
After walking up and down through Camprodon, we continued our way to the snow, wich was pretty much the purpose of this trip! And after driving for a little while we got there. I have to admit that I felt like a kid playing in the snow. We had so much fun and I got to photograph it for the very first time. Here are some of the pictures I took.
Personally I think is kind of difficult to take pictures in snowy landscapes. It was so bright I could barely open my eyes and focus. However i’m very happy with the photos, the colors are very intense and the light is beautiful and soft.
And, finally, after rolling, falling (a lot), gliding down hill and throwing lots of snow, we went back home. It was an amazing, extremely fun day. I still look at the pictures and don’t believe how beautiful everything was. I can wait to go back again!
