First snow this year
Photo made in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands – Crown Domain Het Loo (Nov. 2008)

“Filtered light kisses
the snow-loaded autumn leaves
of blushing beeches… the forest sighs with delight”

Where I live, the snow didn’t stay longer than a few minutes, so I had to travel a few hours to make these pics… The public transport was all messed up because of the first winter-weather, but brought me finally into winter-wonderland… I think this journey was well worth the effort :) …


Technical Details
Photograph made with Pentax K10D camera and
Pentax-DA 18-55 lens
exp.time 1/180 sec. at f/5,6
ISO 100 – Focal length 38

  • I tell you. that’s what I did that afternoon lol – nearly couldn’t walk any more by the time I returned to the bus stop to start the journey home… everything was so fascinating. Luckily, it became dark at last [rofl]
