This is the panoramic view we had from our hotel room ( top storey )during our stay in Sarajevo , hotel Telal is located very near the old town and is a friendly place to be particularly on the day we arrived for it was only 3 C well into the afternoon on the 15th of May , the city had received some snow obviously still visible on the roofs of the houses nearby , we were told by residents the temperature for mid-May had never plummeted this low the last snow to fall on this date was 60 years ago in 1952 , sure did not expect that in May either but when the captain announced the weather forecast for the city 20 minutes before landing that caused some ears to twitch , as the plane cleared the last layer of clouds all passengers were looking through the windows in awe at the blanket of white snow covering the green landscape below. Magical as far i was concerned and i thought it would be great to see the city again under snow for a change... it all made for interesting photos indeed nonetheless three days later it was all gone !
I set my camera on a tripod ( finally i bought one...for this trip )for this and the several others i shot from the same spot .
Thank you for looking,

Hi Carol,
Clever composure showing the grey dull sky and the snow capped roof tops.Rather cold moody image, well portrayed.
