Winter is Not What It Used to Be

I can hardly remember a time where we used to have a sustained snow cover over at least a couple of days. Even temperatures below zero degrees Celsius seem to become scarcer and scarcer. Not that I’m a huge fan of winter, let alone winter sports, but the sight of a snow covered cityscape or landscape can warm you heart. OK, I hear the irony in that.

When I was visiting friends between Christmas and New Year ā€“ or as we Germans tend to say “zwischen den Jahren” (as in “between the years”) ā€“ we, as a matter of tradition, went on a little hike around a sort of lake (which in reality is just a bit of a bulge of the river Isar near Mammingen).

It was pretty cold, but there was not a hint of snow. Now, I wouldn’t even expect the fake lake to be frozen over but some hint of winter would have been nice. In particular for taking photos and trying to capture a “winter scene”. But as of late that seems to be almost an impossible undertaking.

For the time being, the images below will have to do as “winter pictures”.

All pictures taken with a Leica SL and a Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH.
