Captured late on a wintry December afternoon. The frozen lake was bathed in golden sunlight through a veil of cloud. There are shiny chunks of ice lying on the lakes surface. The lakeside beer garden was open (really) at the nearby pub, where I sat wrapped up warmly, sipping hot chocolate, enjoying the beauty and wonderful calm atmosphere.
Shame I didn’t notice the halo ring – see the kind of circular shadow around the sun – at the time or I would have tried to capture more.
Location: Lake Staffel, taken in Uffing, Bavaria, Germany.
