Winter in Kurzeme

Greetings to all the readers and followers of the blog, finally present a photo article not just movie viewing or current rallies. This time I had gone to the northern half of Kurzeme, a total of Valmiera start and finish, got a 800km route. Immediately want to say that in some parts of Kurzeme in rural areas is a thick layer of snow, even above 5 cm of snow than here in Vidzeme.
As far as I remember, I have not been on this side, maybe a very, very long time ago. So here is a small photo overview of what I saw tours, or you can say the expedition, which had to be guided by pre-prepared legends to uniquely locate sights. The illustration below shows Rojas jetty, the sea was noticeably departed. Most pier was iced and very slippery, it was concluded after Climbed on the slippery jetty rocks.

There’s even a pier at Rojas, eyes looked peculiar view where over the Gulf of Riga was developed gloomy clouds of snow. I would add that this figure may follow a different color contrast between ice and sea, dark clouds and sky.
