Nice snowy pics from Serbia and nice Hike! Looks like it was a nice day for it. Cool view of "storm king with a cloud in front".


I been so busy with work I haven't gotten a chance to take any winter photos or go for a hike. There hasn't been much snow anyway so who wants to see a boring landscape?


I got this from the other day..

Thanks!
These days here are ideal for walking. Snow cover is stable due to temperatures below zero whole day.
I like conditions like this, and I hate wet snow and rain in winter...

yea, it was the day after a big rainstorm, lot of moisture left leading to interesting skies. Would have been too much snow or ice before the rain. Did the same hike [Breakneck Ridge] on Nov 4, but turned south at the end of the ridge over to Bull Hill and Cold Spring rather than Mt. Beacon and then ending at Beacon. Enjoyed the more recent hike to Beacon better, but the Nov 4 one had a nice sunset glow and foliage hanging around

==================================================

Took the train to the trailhead, was staying in NYC. Night before I saw this guy at night on the dark streets of NYC



underneath the train tracks F/G that I was about to take, got to the tracks just as the train pulled out.



got off in Bryant Park, Midtown Manhattan



people were ice skating already



NY public library, 42nd street



train was completely packed out of NYC; lots wanted to escape on one of the last good fall weekend days. Going underneath the new Tappan Zee bridge. First 30 miles was peak foliage, then past peak especially where there's hills

Spoiler


Felt like 80+ people exited the train at the hiking trail stop (Breakneck Ridge). Incredibly crowded trail, was a line getting up



slowly thinned as people separated by pace. Scrambling sections, some optional, took a scramble whenever possible



very steep trail, got up fast. View of the Catskills on the horizon looking north



Mt. Taurus / Bull hill further in from the river



more rocks

Spoiler


way too crowded

Spoiler


dog made it up, one hiker brought her dog on the train





ridge continues further but we decided to head downhill and then tack on Bull Hill



one last look south down the Hudson



glimpses of the Hudson through the foliage



foliage with no river view and another river view

Spoiler





much less crowded once we left the ridge. little stream wonder what that structure is for



now at the summit of Bull Hill, much less steep climb. mostly leafless forest to the north with the Shawgunks on the horizon with the taller Catskills behind

Spoiler


looking south. West Point guarding the bend in the Hudson right in the middle of the highlands. perfect spot for a fort



close up. we could see the NYC skyline a little over 50 miles to the south. Look at where the Hudson ends at the photo and you can make out short spiky things above the hills



you can see Storm King Highway blasted onto the side of the mountain; biked on it a few days before. Awesome road, highlands feel special



backlit foliage view



another view to the south, hopefully these aren't getting too repetitive. Lack of foliage was disappointing but one plus is more open views



not sure why this was built. Just fun?



about to descend into the village of Cold Spring



Spoiler


just in time for sunset. Cold Spring was packed with tourists, heard lots of languages from people who were clearly non-locals. Caught the 5:15 train which was late and packed. Both times it was so crowded the conductors didn't bother check tickets, so I have a free trip for another Hudson Highlands hike, probably much less crowded.

With snow cover arriving, it's been a good week for taking pictures!

This is a lovely coastal area called Örstig:













Optic illusion of the water being white when it was in its coldest possible liquid form:




Empty parking lot for the bathing beach:




Not the best path through the forest under those conditions:




Now, some winter wonderland:
















Also some on the next day (Tuesday):







Nice bike path serpentine!




Nyköping transforms into the snow-wall town under these conditions, plus degrees and melting snow that day (Wednesday):







The hot-summer continental record summer of this year is long gone now. Here's the harbour:




Nice, dark path under floodlights and relying a lot on the snow for light:




Slippery downhill to say the least due to the plus degrees!

looks wet and messy looking,must have been just below freezing. the ones with the woods look best [especially streetlights] and the beach and snow is a nice combo

Yeah, classic draw of luck -1°C snowfall and then rather mild temperatures throughout, especially the latter pictures when it was a 3°C high that day. It's frozen back since. Personally I like the winter wonderland woods pictures the best from this week. It felt like some classic fairytale book in Scandinavia. It was just so stereotypical with the snow all over the trees. I do also love the combination of beach + snow but sadly the clouds didn't really help the feel that time.
