Winter Pastels

A “casual stroll on the farm” afforded Your Shot member Sonia Sokhi the opportunity to make this photo of a frosty and colorful scene in Vӧlkermarkt, located in the Austrian province of Carinthia. In part because of its more than 200 lakes and captivating landscapes, Carinthia is known as the “Austrian Riviera.”

Sokhi's shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
