Nothing spells winter to me more than the color white: white snow or, even more beautiful, white frost. Snowfalls sometimes come late in the season - that seems to be the case this year - but at some point, soft and plump flakes greet us, at least in the mountains. White frost is less common, and...

The small Lake Retaud, overlooking Les Diablerets glacier, is one of the many picture perfect spots in Switzerland.
