    In January my hubby and I visited Klatovy, a town in Western Bohemia. There are nice places to take photos of but unfortunately the weather changed significantly while we were going there and when we arrived at the town, it wasn’t much favourable for shooting outside.

    Feel of winter

    One day when fresh snow arrived I decided to take a stroll around our village with my camera though I didn’t expect capturing much.
