I'm on a ski trip in western Sweden (Idre, Dalarna) and just wanted to share some nature photos.
It's mostly pine and fir country here. Pines in this environment grow straight and thin, almost resembling fir-trees as they keep a lot of branches low down. The firs when covered in snow are in turn super thin. Like white poles, completely covered in snow. Some birches here as well. All droop heavily from the wheight of the snow on the naked branches.
