As the winter wraps its cold fingers around us tightly and as the year draws to an end – it is time to recap what has been a great year as far as natural scenic beauty is concerned. Germany is very beautiful and the outdoors are a treat to the senses. With it beginning to get dark earlier by the day, I am drawn to the time when I reached here – winter was fading away and the days were getting longer, sunnier and prettier. A sheet of ice and a blanket of snow often remained, but the sun was up, and the colors were spreading. Here’s a toast to Nature!
On one of my evening strolls, I stumbled on this lake. It was frozen over completely and was the first time I had seen such a sight. Was splendid, to say the least.
Over the next few days, the ice thinned out and was hesitantly slipping into the lake – almost as if it wanted to stay out and enjoy this pretty overlap of climate for some more time.
And in the next few days: birds! Sun bathing, catching up with their buddies, discussing plans for the summer and probably complaining about the winter? 🙂
With so much changing around us everyday, the most constant and cyclic of changes – seasons – have so much to offer.
