It's not winter, actually it was a very cold day in may. The leaves were still brown although in May, they should be more green. I used selective color and a few filters to get this end result. It isn't thermal water, it freezes during winter but not so much to skate on it. So I have been told. I haven't been there during winter to see if that's the case or not.
It's in Breuilpont, France. I don't know the exact location, but in Breuilpont, more exactly close to Breuilpont, I've seen a lot of lakes. This one, however, was on the property of a friend I was visiting. Don't know if there is public access to it.
That is a beautiful place! That is my favorite kind of climate; not too fond of cold but not much I can do...we have very cold winters in Romania and long ones too.
Yes, there are a lot of lakes in Romania, especially in the mountain area, the Carpathians are amazing, lots of lakes. And the South, the Black Sea is very beautiful. I've heard that the trip to the Black Sea by train is the best. Believe it or not, I have never been there. Odd, no? Live in the country but not been there. Perhaps because it's like a 2 day trip by train....
