Creek near Schelklingen in winter covering, Germany, 1990 It was a rather foggy winter's day when I got off the train to walk through a region that had struck me on an earlier ride. When I reached the creek, it cleared up and the sun cast a pink light on the snow. White frost on rose hip, Germany, 2002 In early winter, when white frost had fallen during the night , I found this rose hip in low a rose bush by the wayside.  The sun had not yet been able to melt the white frost away. Frosted reed, Lake Lehnitz, Germany, 1995 On a visit to Berlin, I took the train to Lehnitz (just south of Oranien­burg).  I had already visited the Lake there before that time, but this time, it was comple­tely frozen over and I was able to walk on the ice from shore to shore.  On my return, I saw the reed that I had passed before.

Air bubbles in thick ice, Dronninglund Castle, Denmark, 1993 On the way from Aalborg to the ferry in Frederiks­havn, I passed Dronning­lund Castle.  It was bitterly cold and the castle's moat was covered with a thick ice layer.  The air trapped bubbles had formed peculiar, fantastic shapes. Snow-covered field near Allmendingen, Germany, 1990 The sun was already low in the sky when I reached this field whose un­even patches cast little shadows that contrasted with the sun's pink light. Twig in deep snow, Ulm, Germany, 1991 Right in front of the student hostel, a little twig fallen from a tree was deeply buried in the fresh snow when the sun­rays brushed against the snow's surface.
