Over Christmas and New Years I was in Germany for a few weeks. I dislike travelling to Europe when it’s finally summer in southern Australia, but there’s no way around it if I want to be in Germany during Christmas time. At least every two or three years it feels great to celebrate Christmas with the family.

We didn’t have any snow and very mild weather until Christmas Day, when temperatures suddenly dropped below freezing. Within a night enough snow fell to finish Christmas in white, what I had been hoping for.

I did some short walks in the snowy landscape, but didn’t bring the right clothing with me for longer walks in such cold weather.

A few more photos are in the new album Winter.
