On a cold winter day in the Franconian Switzerland, Germany, I took my dog, Finlay, for a walk in the forest. The air was crisp and the ground was covered in a blanket of snow. Finlay ran ahead of me, sniffing at the trees and bushes.

The forest was quiet and peaceful. The only sound was the crunch of our footsteps on the snow. We walked for a while, enjoying the beauty of the winter landscape.
