It finally snowed a bit this week. It was only a few flurries, but it still brought a smile to my face. I love snow. I have a lot of good memories associated with snowstorms – listening to the radio to find out of school was closed, building forts in the snow, hot chocolate. To this day I still turn into a kid when it snows. And I even enjoy shoveling snow. I find winter to be so much more enjoyable when the landscape is covered in white, as the brightness of the snow takes away from the dreary darkness of winter.
This picture was taken in 2013 in Allgäu, not to far from the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. The church is in the middle of a large, empty field leading to the mountains and is quite scenic. I was far away at a gas station and stopped just to get this shot with my zoom lens.
