Between a very busy Christmas holiday week and the start of the new year, we got up early one morning and went for a hike in Rosenthal-Bielatal. It had snowed and I really wanted to see the the Elbe Sandstone Mountain covered in snow. Funnily enough, I had never been out hiking in the winter when it had snowed in the 3,5 years that I have lived in Dresden. So seeing the sandstones on a glorious morning covered in snow was a first for me.
It was one of those days that started with these good intentions to catch up on work and actually use the quiet of Sundays to get some things of my to-do-list crossed off. Only then it turned out to be such a beautiful day with clear skies, sunshine and crisp snow that I couldn’t bear the thought of not going out for a least a couple of hours. This winter has been strangely warm with no snow until now.
Equipped with my cameras I took the dog and went out to a nearby forest that I tend to go to often as it’s very close and not being frequented by a lot of people.
