Winter Approach by Marianne Vahl

The picture is taken this winter (2019) at the skiresort Trysil in Norway. At the age of 82 and 76 my parents were crosscountryskiing around the Skurufjellet Mountain. Despite their age, they never miss a chance to work out. I had a hard time following them, and used every opportunity to stop, rest and take some pictures.
