Welcome to my hometown Saalfeld - the "winter - wonderland"



Winter is not my style. It's cold here in Central Europe and a low pressure system already follows the next. This means that throughout the day it is gray. It is snowing or raining. And if you have bad luck, it's raining and snowing at the same time.

Since the photography really makes little fun.
And yet I have my little Sony RX100 always there. Sometimes I take pictures but just to be rid of my frustrations.







In Germany, the owners of the houses are required to clear the snow and other debris away between six o'clock in the morning and ten o'clock in the evening. If one is on vacation or work all day, he must ask the neighbors to help out or much money involved a janitor - service.

Only the streets and sidewalks in rsponsibility of city council are not cleaned up. The employees are simply too lazy to work, or to think. The ordinary citizens must see how he comes home.
Look at the pictures to understand this problems.
Sometimes I trudge through miles of snow, although the roads are cleared for the cars. Nobody thinks that the pedestrian.






For many years, the global warming is threatened. But unfortunately she doesn't show up. Every winter in recent years is snowy and cold. It doesn't look well, as if this something would change.






Some days it's still fun to have the winter. Then, when the sun shines and it's not quite cold and windy. I hope spring comes soon this year. Then again, there are many beautiful things to photograph.
