And winter came

Thursday before last we got some snow for the first time this season. But, it does not stay long in the morning, despite it was a few cm thick on the ground.

Last Friday night (only about 48 hour ago) it began to snow again. Snow felt down the whole night and the whole morning. Getting the snow away from the gateway needed about an hour. And it didn’t stop snowing until now (Sunday afternoon 16:00h). Sometimes like a snowstorm, sometimes like a fine powder. Many kids home for a white Christmas, now.

But, the temperatures are still around the freezing point (0°C) and the forecast proposes +6-8°C for Tuesday. So, the winter wonderland won’t last for long, I guess, because, the snow will turn to rain and the already fallen snow will melt.

For our state, the traffic news, announced more than 250 km of traffic jam only on the motorways. The railways are hindered by the snow, too. (Winter always comes as an unforeseen surprise). Better, to stay at home in the warm.

Travel Tuesday: Evening mood at low tide

Being near the ocean give wonderful light. Open you eyes and see, what mother nature celebrates.

My daughter picked this image for her living room: 100×50 cm printed on canvas. Looks gorgeous.

Take care!

 

In the forest after the rain started

Monochromia

Here in Germany we have a saying “Steter Tropfen holen den Stein” (~ constant dripping wears away the stone), but also “der Tropfen, der das Fass zum überlaufen bringt” (~ the drop that makes the barrel overflowing).

Same is, when rain falls on the forest ground. First, the rain will be soaked. The longer the rain lasts, the more water won’t be soaked. Instead, it searches a way to escape. So, the water comes back to skylight at a tiny, but growing, spring.

More of my images can be seen at my own blog.
