The story behind the image

My mother was an avid rider since her early childhood. One of her most favorite places for riding was Bredeneek Castle near Preetz, Germany. She visited the castle and stables with her mother even during winter. This photo was taken from the large garden after heavy snowfall had hit the region. (There is usually not that much snow.)

The castle has been renovated in recent years and is a popular location for weddings, events and movies today.
