Winter Wonderland at Springtime

Since, as reported yesterday, winter returned this weekend for one last hurray, I took the chance to go hiking in the snowy winterwoods one more time. And of course, I also took some photos. The location is once again the Westermark forrest near Syke in North West Germany, familiar from earlier snowy forrest photo posts.

I also saw some deer and a woodpecker, but unfortunately, I was not quick enough to photograph them.

So take a look at what March looks like in the Westermark woods:

Snowy woods

Snow frosted winter woods

Snowy path

The branches were so heavily frosted with snow, that they turned many of the paths into a curious fairtale wonderland.

Snow covered pine trees

The pine trees hung heavy with snow as well.

Snowy hut

The “witch house” for once looks really like a witch’s home.

Snowy woods

Barely fifty meters from where I parked my car and yet it looks like Narnia.

    So gorgeous!

  2. You’re really doing a great job with your exposure compensation, Cora. Good work.

    I suppose now is not a good time to tell you we’re trying for the 80s (26+ Celsius) this upcoming weekend. ;p)

      Glad you like the photos, Doug.

      Last weekend, we had bright sunshine and warm (by North German standards) temperatures of 14 degrees Celsius, but now it’s right back to snow and frost.
