MARCH 2006 – After a night of heavy snowfall, Munich’s Nymphenburg Castle and the canal leading up to it are covered completely with snow, a rare sight for early March. Photo © by Mark Zanzig/zanzig.com
The story behind the image
Some snow is typical for Munich, Germany, during winter. However, it usually will have melted away by early March or at least be reduced to a few ugly, dirty spots next to the street that do not resemble snow at all.
Not so in 2006. A night of heavy snow had put the city under a thick white coating. Nymphenburg Castle, one of the tourist magnets of the city, made no difference. We lived at that time around the corner, and once the snowfall had stopped, I grabbed my camera and did this wonderful and rare shot.
