The mountain landscape is wrapped in a mysterious silence, the snow covers everything and in the cold night it draws chrystals which ring in the wind. The tits rush with swift flights, while the blackbirds flutter around in the thorny bushes, with each approaching step. With a lot of luck, in the quietest forests, you can find the footprints of the marten or the small rose-shaped prints of the wild cat. The snowy background transforms into an open book which narrates the tribulations of the woods.
