2017 started just like 2016 ended, with mild weather. However, by the end of last week, winter finally arrived in the form of storm Egon.
Here in Northern Germany, we weren’t hit nearly as badly by Egon as some other regions, though Egon certainly made his presence felt, as the following photos show:
After Egon had blown through, the temperatures dropped and so the snow Egon had brought stuck around, joined by hoarfrost. The result was icy cold, but very pretty indeed.
By the time dusk was falling, the already magical scenery became even prettier, because in addition to snow and frost, we also got fluffy pink clouds.
I have been busy these past few days, but I did find the opportunity to go hiking in the woods for an hour today. Of course, I also took some photos and with a better camera, too. I hope to post those tomorrow, but for now enjoy these smartphone photos of winter in North Germany.
