A year after the accident

Today is the anniversary of my ski accident. It has been an incredible adventure, but I am so glad it is over! Few days ago I had a flash back of the whole year fighting with my injury at physio and hospitals when I met a woman who just had a similar leg injury in similar circumstances skiing. I felt for her because I knew what she felt and what she has ahead of her. At the same time I felt like I am finally at the finishing line of the marathon and very soon my physiotherapy will be over and I will be considered healed.
The only thing left after all this is a thought if I really want to go back to ski or not. All my orthopedic surgeons and physiotherapists are telling me that I can and I am strong enough, but  the thought of falling and injuring myself is too overwhelming for me is still bigger than the pleasure that I am getting when skiing...

It seemed like diamonds were falling from the sky!

There is so much splendor in nature! It always take my breath away... 
The other day while driving I witnessed a magnificent winter scenery: at one particular moment I saw a tree line on the side of the road. The trees had coats of ice on them that sun was reflecting and the only thing I could see was the light sparkling all over the place. It seemed like diamonds were falling from the sky! It was truly amazing! I was expecting my drive to be torturous and very long but instead it became something special. All I wanted was to stay there and experience all the beauty nature had to offer at that very moment. I did not want it to end!

A snowman's family

During my daily walk today, I came across this wonderful snowman’s family. It is rather interesting to witness that kids recreate their family environment even when it is just for fun. This looks bright and cheerful!

Beautiful winter season

When traveling to Québec we got there so late that we had to check in this hotel in middle of the night. To my surprise the next morning while having breakfast this was the view from the restaurant window. Beautiful, isn't it!?

Winter Scenery of Québec

These are some of the pictures that I captured while driving in the countryside in the province of Québec. I am always fascinated by the old architecture.

Winter vs Summer

During holidays I visited my brother at his cottage and it was really nice to compare the summer scenery to the winter one. Here are few pictures:
