One thing that strikes to me as beautiful in the cold and generally dark winter are the brief moments of sunshine. If you spend a month without seeing the Sun once (our Novembers can literally be like that), you really appreciate the light.
In the dead of winter, when the sun is briefly and barely above the horizon, you can see these things cruising against the clear blue sky. If the sky is clear, that is, it's very rare. The seemingly calm movement of the birds is actually pretty fast. You should use faster shutter speed to capture them properly but, well, the moment went by so fast. I'm just happy I got this.
The winter is gone for this year, hello spring!
