The story behind the image
About once in a decade we get some late snow in Munich, Germany. You may have spent a couple of warm, summer-like days on the patio in March, and then – whoosh! – comes a period of cold days and nights that may even bring some snow. Of course, when you have been enjoying the warm temperatures already, this is not really welcome but what can you do?
2012 had been such a year, when heavy snow covered the landscape after an unusually cold night. On this day, exactly ten years ago! In the morning I could not resist to capture the sight of the Duffodils that Petra had already put on the table outside. All the optimism spread by the usually bright yellow flowers – buried under snow. Bizarre, but beautiful.
