There was snow, white snow....
The first blue moor frog came out one week ago but due to the decreasing temperatures, amphibians, insects, spiders.....every sign of spring disappeared again. Heavy snow and a temperature of -11 degree Celsius.....not really what I’m longing for. ‘My’ snowdrops were covered by snow and when the snow melted, not much of them was left.
Fortunately some flowers did survive!
The weather forecast for next week is hopeless and although I have resolved not complaining about the weather, I really DISLIKE it!
I’m longing for warmth and to photograph a living creature......so maybe my next blog will take a bit longer.
What a beautiful world outside! I was up early and with -18,7 degree Celsius I waited in the dark for a red or pink sun to rise.....instead fog came up. Unfortunately no beautiful sunrise but enough fairytale land to photograph like these trees in a forest.....I tried to create some arctic atmosphere!

A touch of frost
At last winter started this week with a thin layer of snow. Comparing to last winter it is nothing but I shall not complain as I’m happy that snow and cold finally arrived.
While it was snowing I went out with my camera as I wanted to photograph Snowdrops, but the plants I photographed earlier were not photogenic enough. Fortunately I found some moss in the snow with the beautiful scientific name: Tortula muralis (it reminds of Pirates of the Caribbean) . It took me some time to find the right composition and in the meantime the snow was thick enough for some over exposure shots.

Today the employees of the weather forecast FINALLY did their job correctly and the promised snow is falling right now.......of course I was out and enjoyed winter wonderland! I photographed the same crocuses as one week ago. The advantage of photographing with frost is that people are in a hurry and don’t speak or ask anything :-).

Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
