I took these pictures in Alba Iulia at the end of last year. It was the first day when it snowed in Alba Iulia, just before St. Nicholas. On such a weather many people would prefer to stay in the house for a cup of hot tea, however I decided to take a walk on the hills near the city, which the locals call “The Mammoth” because of their mammoth-like shape. And I didn’t get disappointed!

First I took a walk to a monastery which stands near the hills.
Then I went through the frosted forest heading to the hills.
I climbed the Mammoth.
Then I saw the city. Although I’ve been many times there, it was the first time when enjoying a winter panorama of Alba Iulia: snow everywhere, everything looked quiet and peaceful.
Even if it’s winter the nature was still alive.
I climbed further…
…until I got on top of the hill.
Suddenly I saw a flock of sheep searching for some grass in the snow.
Then I went down on the other side of the hill…
…slowly coming closer to the city…
…and leaving the hill behind.
I went further…
…through the vineyards…
…and finally got close to the city!
Who were these guys waiting for?
