Thanks all for comments and feedback. Light, as many of you have commented, was something we don't get every day I was lucky to be threre in the right time.
The macro bird shot is not so good unless you are a diehard fan of the species.
Valid note. Also to forum is not the right for that The photographic quality of that is also much less than the others due to heavy cropping and higher iso - I could not get very close to the dipper.
Do you have gloves? If so, what kind are they? I have been looking for a pair that are thin enough to work all of the camera settings, but still give my hands a little warmth...
Nothing special, actually I had gloves I use every day, standard black leather type city gloves, with those you can handle a camera as well quite easily. To keep my hands warm, I put them back to the pockets once a while (more important is to have a good jacket).
