Walking in the snow

In Piedmont once we have spring time in the middle of winter, and sometimes we are overtaken by intensive snow falling on the edge of spring…. The weather is sometimes like a woman – variable and full of surprises. 🙂 And even though I’m not the fan of snow (maybe because I don’t practice winter sports which would compensate difficulties on the roads), I must admit I was charmed by white Langhe hills, grapevines hidden under a light duvet, crystals sparkling in the sun light… Usually views you can enjoy in the Langhe and Roero are breathtaking, but the landscape in white scenery, with fluffy curves of hills with spread over little towns and castles looked really fabulous…

Taking advantage of sunny weather I jumped into the car and went for a short trip from Alba to Serralunga d’Alba, then to Barolo and on my way back I passed by La Morra. I was stopping many time trying to park my car just on the edge of rapid slope and with my camera in hand I was immortalizing wonderful white landscape of Piemonte. I hope you will enjoy your virtual walk in snow!
