For me this image represents the ‘horror’ winter from February 2012. The Siberian cold
spread over Europe at the beginning of this month with temperatures like -20ºc and northern winds, which felt like – 40ºc. For almost three weeks big parts of France were in code Orange weather alert for cold. Like the Auvergne region, where I took this image.
That day the light was not that great but I decided to go out and have a look at a lake close by. The water was frozen and the wind had created some nice waves in the ice. I was looking for some nice ice details and while I was focusing on some parts of the lake, I had the feeling I was looking at a glacier in the mist. An intimate Ice Landscape in a lake.
