60 Stunning winter pictures that makes you smile












Roads and paths are invading our literature, our poetry, our illustrations, our linguistic expressions and music. Even the photographers can not keep their eyes (and lenses) out of a beautiful highway or road, so we collected this list of 28 photos of amazing ways
Paths like these have a powerful hold on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promises change and solitude, peace and quiet. There is nothing like a walk in a beautiful way to clear your head – or fill it with new ideas

 Loch Lubnaig, Perthshire

The Falls of Dochart run through the small town of Killin in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. In summer the falls send up a misty spray as the waters crash into the rocks; in winter they’re reduced to a frozen trickle

Càrn a’ Gheòidh sits 3199 feet above the wildfowl-filled Loch Vrotachan, which may explain why it’s called “Hill of the Goose” in Gaelic. Climbers walk along a ridge known as Carn nan Sac to reach the summit

Steve Schnabel / Via Flickr: 15572139@N07
Liathach is widely considered to be one of Scotland’s most challenging mountains due to its narrow summit ridge. In winter the surrounding marshland often freezes, making the walk even harder

 Loch Torridon, Achnasheen, Ross-Shire

Cairn Toul is the fourth highest mountain in Scotland, while Braeriach is the third highest. Braeriach means “brindled greyish upper part” in Gaelic, which proves that it’s not always easy to come up with names for mountains

Loch an Eilein is famous for its island and stunning 13th century castle. The surrounding pine forests were also used by famous Scottish outlaw and cattle rustler Rob Roy to hide his stolen cows

 Lochan na h-Achlaise, Rannoch Moor

Lochan na h-Achlaise, Rannoch Moor
Martin Sojka / Via Flickr: msojka
It’s not entirely clear why this gorgeous, chilly expanse of water is called “Little Loch of the Armpit” in Gaelic. This mountain fringed loch is far too pretty to deserve such a strange name

 Abriachan Waterfall, by Loch Ness, Highland

 Milton of Campsie, East Dunbartonshire

Milton of Campsie, East Dunbartonshire
This long wall is four feet high, but nevertheless it’s almost completely buried in the snow. Although this might look like the Highlands, it was actually taken in Milton of Campsie near Glasgow

 Tower Ridge, Ben Nevis

Tower Ridge, Ben Nevis
Adrian Fagg / Via Flickr: adrianfagg
This forbidding ridge is part of the summit approach to Ben Nevis: the UK’s highest mountain. The challenging climb is made even more difficult by thick ice deposits and year round snow

This amazing, jagged plain isn’t made from discarded plastic: it’s actually a field of broken ice on the surface of Loch Morlich near Aviemore

Loch Doon, Carrick, Ayrshire

Brian Wotherspoon / Via Flickr: brian_digital

The Pap of Glencoe and Sgurr nam Fiannaidh, Highland
John O’Brien / Via Flickr: totspurjohn

 Sand dunes, Dornoch beach

Sand dunes, Dornoch beach
John Haslam / Via Flickr: foxypar4

Loch Morlich and the Cairngorms
Graham Norrie / Via Flickr: chuckrock

 Central Park, Airdrie, North Lanarkshire

Central Park, Airdrie, North Lanarkshire
Stevie Spiers / Via Flickr: stevies_snaps

Packhorse Bridge, Carrbridge

gominokouhai / Via Flickr: gominokouhai
This pretty rock arch is the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands. It was damaged in a great flood called the “Muckle Spate” in 1829, which left it too rickety and unsafe to use. It’s now purely decorative

 Broughty Ferry, Dundee

Broughty Ferry, Dundee

This broken lobster pot on Broughty Ferry beach has been claimed by the snowy tundra; this is basically what Cornwall will look like during the next ice age

Braeriach from Carn a' Mhaim, Cairngorms
John o’Brien / Via Flickr: totspurjohn
This is another wintry view of Braeriach (a.k.a. “brindled greyish upper part”). This amazing photo was taken from the nearby peak of Carn a’Mhaim, which is just a hillock compared to the even larger Ben Macdui

Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire
Happywanderer1 / Via Flickr: hapwan
No, this isn’t Cair Paravel. It’s actually Dunnotar Castle, a ruined medieval fortress on the east coast of Scotland

 Buachaille Etive Mòr, Highlands

Buachaille Etive Mòr, Highlands
Jonathan Tweed / Via Flickr: jtweed
The “great herdsman of Etive” is blanketed in snow each winter, but that- or the fact that parts of the steep climb are graded as “severe”- doesn’t stop thousands of climbers scrambling up its icy flanks every year

 River Clyde, Bothwell Castle

River Clyde, Bothwell Castle
Aly 1963 / Via Flickr: 45979675@N06
The Clyde is wide, silty, and slow-moving in Glasgow, but much more spirited, narrow (and prone to freezing) as it winds through the forest near Bothwell Castle

 Loch na Ba Ruaidhe, Glen Convinth

Loch na Ba Ruaidhe, Glen Convinth
Sheila / Via Flickr: swan-scot

 Moonrise, Rannoch Moor

Moonrise, Rannoch Moor
Martin Sojka / Via Flickr: msojka
This incredible scene looks like something from another planet, but it’s actually the frozen expanse of Rannoch Moor: a 50 mile stretch of wildlife-rich moorland bordering Lochaber in Highland

Beinn Damh from Loch Torridon
Steve Schnabel / Via Flickr: 15572139@N07

 Summit of Ben Vrackie, Pitlochry

Summit of Ben Vrackie, Pitlochry
Simon Swales / Via Flickr: swalophoto

 Neilston, East Renfrewshire

Neilston, East Renfrewshire
This might look like it was taken in the far North, but it was actually captured in the fairly busy town of Neilston, proving that even commuter villages near Glasgow look like Narnia after heavy snowfall

 Eilean Donan Castle, Kyle of Lochalsh

Eilean Donan Castle, Kyle of Lochalsh
Akela NDE / Via commons.wikimedia.org
Eilean Donan is one of the prettiest castles in Scotland at the best of times, but heavy snow turns it into an enchanted palace. It sits on a tidal island where the great sea lochs of Duich, Long, and Alsh come together

Stag, Loch Quoich, Invergarry

Stag, Loch Quoich, Invergarry
Colin Cheesman / Via Flickr: 93309789@N00
If this young stag was standing the other way round, this image would be an almost perfect recreation of Landseer’s iconic Monarch of the Glen painting. In true Narnia style, he looks as if he’s trying to tell us something

 Cir Mhor, Isle of Arran

Cir Mhor, Isle of Arran
Stephen Archer / Via Flickr: stephenarcher
Cir Mhor is known as the “Matterhorn of Arran”, thanks to its alpine nature. This ice cave looks like something you’d find in Switzerland: it’s hard to believe this was taken on a small Scottish island

Beinn Chabhair

Beinn Chabhair
George Paterson / Via Flickr: georgep008
This munro’s name means “Hill of the Hawk” in Gaelic and boasts incredible views down to Loch Lomond, making it well worth the 3,061 foot climb to the summit

Alex / Via Flickr: timeoff
Loch an Eilein is a stunning stretch of water near the popular tourist resort of Aviemore. It’s surrounded by pine forests and snow dusted peaks, and it boasts a ruined island castle that almost certainly used to be home to some kind of Snow Queen

We understand that among all pets we pay too much attention to dogs undeservedly avoiding cats. But cats are really special pets. They love you and live in your home but at the same time they aren’t with you. Unlike dogs cats walk by themselves. But it does not interfere people to own and live side by side with these a little bit wild animals. Today we decided to restore a justice on our website and represent to your attention some beautiful and positive photos of these graceful animals. Enjoy

Avec un renard, vous ne savez jamais ce qu’ils vont faire. Vont-ils être à la chasse, dormir, nager … vont-ils même être là du tout

Magnificent Sky Over Czech Republic

Weather can wreak havoc, or cause unbelievable beauty.  Cloud formations can tell the weather ahead.  Sometimes it’s for the worse, or sometimes for the better, but in these photos seen below I can’t help but be amazed! These cloud formations are weird, crazy, amazing, and simply stunning, but they’re all real

Cool Colors,Hokkaido


Martin Rak / Via Kent Shiraishi
The blue pond where the first snow fall I think that this pond is ‘The Most Beautiful Pond In The World!’ This blue pond is the wonderful pond which changes colors every day. Surprisingly, the blue of the water has no exact explanation, but this phenomenon is attributed to the water contained in the aluminum hydroxide, which is capable of reflecting blue color, just as it does the Earth’s atmosphere. All are nature’s tints
