Snowy buildings - perfect theme for the Winter - I have photographed some, but not ordinary houses 😉

SNOWY BUILDINGS
Season Hunt - Winter Hunt


Before I begin, let me tell you about the Season Hunt: since the beginning of Autumn, Barbara Orenya | @barbara-orenya is hosting a Challenge in the FeelGood Community:

Season Hunt

Every week a new theme is announced which suits to the actual season. At the moment we are having the Winter Hunt and this week's theme is:

SNOWY BUILDINGS
(https://ecency.com/hive-190931/@barbara-orenya/season-hunt-challenge-we-are-ff33847e89bf)

I want to begin with an image of a snowy shed that I have already posted last Winter. I have taken it in the same area where I have also taken the last images in this post near the Farchtensee lake in the mountains between the Drautal valley and the Gailtal valley (Wikipedia: Farchtensee English / Deutsch)

As you can see, it has been snowing heavily and I have been lucky that the road has been cleared before I drove over that mountain pass (Windische Höhe - Wikipedia), but it was deeply snowed short time later anyway. I have had new winter tires on my car, so the snow wasn't a huge problem 😎

Now to the photos of this Winter:

First we are heading to a place close to where I live: The Hochosterwitz Castle is a well known castle on a huge rock in the middle of Carinthia (Hochosterwitz Castle - Wikipedia). 2022 had just begun when I thought it would be a good to take a photo of the snowy castle at sunrise. The clouds were nicely colouried in pastel pink and together with the snowy landscape the photo turned out quite nice, I think.

Don't say there's no snowy building in the next photo 😉
Wikipedia says that the English name of the "building" in the lower left corner of the photo is Tree Stand (Tree Stand - Wikipedia) which is called "Hochsitz" or "Ansitzeinrichtung" in German. Hunters use it to look out for deer or other animals.

Actually, I wanted to take photos of the forest with the snow in the foreground and the dark clouds only, but then I thought, the Tree Stand would look quite interesting, although it imbalances the image to the left in my eyes.
By the way, it is a colour photo - natural monochrome can happen in wintertime only ;)

Now, back to the area where I have taken the first and also the last 3 photos in this post.
Right before you get to the Farchtensee lake there's a meadow where this crooked shed is to see. The snow was quite fresh when I took this photo last weekend at sunrise. One week later the trees haven't been that much snowy anymore, as you can see in the last photos below.

When driving over the Kreuzberg Pass between Greifenburg in the Drautal valley and Weißbriach in the Gailtal valley (Kreuzberg - Wikipedia) there's a nice parking spot from where you can see this cabin right across the road, which was nicely covered by snow last weekend.

My sunrise photo trip on Saturday was not productive at all until I had this view of the Burgruine / Castle Ruins Griffen (Burgruine Griffen - Wikipedia) on my way back home.
The valley was beautifully covered by fog and only the higher regions like the castle were to see. In the background you can see the Karawanks mountain range with Hochobir mountain to the right.

Well, when you see the next photos you might think I'm going to the same places all the time, and partly you are right, of course, but I like these places a lot and there's always something to take photos of :)

So, I was again at the Farchtensee lake yesterday and this time I took photos of the crooked shed from the opposite side than in the photo I have taken the weekend before. I wonder if it will still stand there next year, but these old sheds are well built and I think you will see more photos of it in future ;)

There's a lot of snow on the ground and the trees in the shady areas are still covered by snow, but you can see that the trees behind have less and less snow the higher up the mountain or more exposed to the sun they are.

On Google Maps you can see where about I have been and even this shed is visible.

Photographing with the zoom lens across the Farchtensee there are these little cabins on the other side, one is a boat house I believe. The lake is small, but a little big bigger than it seems on this photo, and it is below the snow and ice.

Suitable accommodation waiting for me in crooked shed, water right on the doorstep plenty of piece and quiet up there, little trees to befriend with tall ones standing guard.

Yes the crooked shed will suit me fine! Excellent photography, fine castle I will leave for you, too much of a winding road to the top 😉...

All you need is a floor because the frozen ground isn't very comfortable, a window and a door, maybe a stove too 😀

Thank you so much that you like my photos, dear Joan, and for your always lovely words 😊

I'm not sure if I haven't already sent this photo to cool you 😉

Wow, awesome, just what I need, another balmy hot day with feel factor 31C UV Extreme, no sunlight currently hiding away!

We have 4C at the moment outside of the car 😉

Layer up a little, still quite comfortable outdoors!

We only see those numbers when we go inland during winter months, I thoroughly enjoy walking outside in brisk fresh air like that.

Haha, I meant it's warm, the more north we came the less snow and the warmer it was 😅

Sounds good to be out, enjoy something different.

Back home by now, so hope it was a pleasant day with a few photographs along the way!

Nope, no photos - I've been too tired from nightshift and just wanted to get home 😴

No wonder they use the phrase "a thick blanket of snow". Those are thick blankets of snow and I just shiver all the way here from the Philippines thinking about just how cold the place is 🥶

Great hunt my friend. You were fortunate to have good snow. Wishing you the best in the draw.

Oh yes, the winter covers all landscape with a thick white blanket. Everything's nice and clean ... until the snow melts in Spring and everything's gray and muddy, but that's another story, maybe for the next season hunt 😎

You're lucky to have your daughter in Germany to get some snowy photos too 😉

Thanks a lot for your kind words, my friend 😊

I am sure @barbara-orenya has Spring already covered in the season Hunt 😊

Sure lucky my daughter is in Germany. I was able to share some photos in the hunt. She's already saved me countless times hahaha 😂

Take care my friend 😊

Oh yes, I am also sure that she already knows what we will be hunting in the next months 😁

You take care too, my friend, stay safe and healthy 😊

Love your photos of the snowy buildings, especially the first minimalist one. Great variety shots of the crooked shed. The snow does make everything look like a fairyland.

I haven’t put together anything yet for the Hunt. The power was out for over 5 hours this morning. The first time this has happened for awhile. With the wood stove it’s not so bad as for other people who rely only on electric heat. We had rain today but cold is setting in tonight.

Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week. 🤗

Good morning Jo,

thanks a million for your nice words and everything else 😊

I love it when all the gray, brown and dull landscape is covered by a nice clean blanket of white snow. The word fairyland suits very well, I believe.

Such a power out happens very seldom here. That's one advantage of living in a town I guess. During heavy snowfalls many villages in smaller valleys sometimes don't have power for a day or longer.

I have seen your hunting post is now online and I hope I'll be able to have a look at it here in the office later.

Have a great day, dear Jo 🤗🌞

Good morning Hannes and what a magnificent collection of photos of the snowy building sitting in the field. I think that when one finds an ideal photography spot it is well worth returning.
In Australia we call a field paddock. No wonder you need special winter tires for driving over the mountains and general roads I imagine during winter.
I love winter wonderlands and while it is very cold I found it to be a very bearable cold when all rugged up. I am chuffed that I found your post earlier than later this time. Travelling around Hive finding my blogger friends makes for good daily walking. If only I could count the steps.😄

Good morning Angie,

I have several spots which I visit regularly and in between I always try to find new locations, but in these pandemic days I don't drive that far and at the moment I stay on our side of the border.

The roads are cold and often icy in winter, so you need other tires. When you have an accident with summer tires in winter your insurance will not pay, regardless if it#s your fault or not.

It's never really too cold, but you might have the wrong or to less clothing on 😁

I love Winter Wonderlands too and hope it will snow again soon to have nice walks during the snowfall - so calm and peaceful.

Thank you so much again for your nice comment, dear Angie, I do hope you're having a wonderful day and week 🤗

Yes, I enjoyed watching your photos. I love to see snow. Your snowy landscape looks really wonderful. I also love sunrise photos. The sunrise in the 6th photo is my most favorite.

The photos of the old sheds and the little cabins houses covered with thick snow and the snowy land and the snowy forest look like in the fairy tales.

Great capture! Thanks so much for sharing. 🙂

Oh yes, that sunrise was a real nice surprise to see, thank you so much that you like it too, my friend 😊
Winter Wonderland - I love it and I do hope for more snow in the next weeks - the more the better 😁

Thank you so much kindly for your always so very nice comments, my friend @tangmo, and I'm wishing you a wonderful day and week 🤗

You are much welcome! Yeah! I hope you will have more and more snow... That'll be really wonderful!

Many thanks for your kind wishes! Wishing you a pleasant weekend!

Sometimes the snow even comes one last time in the beginning of May when we don't need it anymore 🤣

Thanks a million, have a wonderful weekend, my friend 🌞

Beautiful photos Hannes and you really live in a snowy wonderful world.
