Travel Snapshot- Winter in Schwarzwald, Germany

If I have to translate the meaning of Schwarzwald in English, it is actually compose of two words "schwarz" which means black and "wald" which means forest. It is simply called Black Forest in English. Do you know why it was named like that? It is because the dense growth of conifers in the forest blocked out most of the light inside the forest.

We just happened to pass this place as we drove from Zurich, Switzerland to Strasbourg, France last winter 2010. This amazing view of nature truly fascinates me. I thought I can only see it in postcards but I did saw it from my naked eyes.

Black Forest is the wooded mountain range in Baden-W├╝rttemberg, southwestern Germany. It was such a very fascinating view! I love it! I wish to visit and to see it again next time.

My wife's Dad's family are from the Schwarzwald area - what an amazing coincidence! Lovely photographs, too - you certainly do travel a lot. I wish I could too, but at least I can see beautiful photos!
