Snow in Split by Lidija-Lolic Snow in Split by Lidija-Lolic
When it snows in Split it's a holiday. Literally. Nobody goes to work (to be honest, they cannot go even if they wanted because their cars have bad or summer tires, no snow chains or experience of driving on snow), all usual life stops and everybody goes out to make snowmen, to slide, or to ski. Or just to enjoy whiteness of that unique occasion.

All of that excitement is because snow in my town is so rare that it becomes breaking news. And past weekend we had biggest snow in past 50 years and city was in total madness.

Yet, after the whole excitement goes away, in comes the ice. Since our road cleaning services almost do not exist (they have two trucks) whole city is one big ice-skating rink.
So, basically normal life is now paralysed until warmer weather comes and ice melts :)


Location: Split, Croatia

Additional information: panorama, stitched of 8 vertical shots

Very nice and unique scene. I really like how I could see a lot in one shot. Great focus and detail with very vivid colors.

ma da, bez snijega je uobičajen pogled na Split, tisuće puta poslikan (bar za nas koji smo odavde), ali snijeg mu je ipak dao neobični štih :)

Skoro pa žalim što nisam rođena dolje u Splitu pa da i moja obitelj sudjeluje u tim snježnim radostima :) Život nije isti ako ti oboje roditelja radi a ti jedva imaš vremena stat i uživat u snijegu :) I prelijepa je slika, za razglednicu! :D

Kako ono kažu na radiju? Za sve je Kerum kriv. xD

Last snow we had 3 years ago. And snow this big was 50 years ago.
It's very rare, usually it falls every few years, lasts only few hours and melts in the morning, this was once in a lifetime event in Split :)

Thank you! :heart:

Excellent panoramic of the city in such a unqiue time, as you said, in 50 years! I've been hearing all about the low temperatures around Europe, and I'm in Scotland in the UK, we've seemed to have missed all the snow, and it's never really ventured much below -2 - 0 celcius.

Yes, I guess recent cyclones avoided northern parts of Europe. One of my virtual friends sent me photos from his front yard in Norway. Green grass and just traces of snow, while in Dalmatia we had 1m of snow in some places and usually it's breaking news if my town Split has a temperature below 0 Celsius in the winter.
I guess cyclones avoided Scotland too...

Really unusual situation, mild winter in north and raging winter storms in south...

E, svaka ti čast!
Pokušao sam napraviti istu ovu fotku, ali kad se uputiš autom (koje, naravno, ima ćelave litnje gume) po ovakvim vremenskim neprilikama, prema vidilici... onda, obično, nastanu problemi.
Tako da mi, nakon 30-ak minuta pokušavanja, nije više bilo do fotografiranja, nego sam samo gledao maknuti auto sa ceste!
....da te više ne davim... VRHUNSKA FOTKA i, još jednom, SVAKA ČAST! ;)

Uh, dobro si se nagnjavio. Ja sam išla pješke, auto nije dolazio u obzir. I pješke je bilo preklizavo. I onda, kad je taman došla dobra ura za slikavanje, počela ledena kiša, uz onu buretinu. Ma bilo je koma, ali je na kraju dobro ispalo :)

Puno hvala!!! :hug:
