Yesterday was the end of a series of sunny days in Carinthia, and for me it was a one-day interlude. In the evening we were invited to a Christmas party near Klagenfurt, but upon arriving there, we decided to turn around and drive home again. It had begun to snow a little, and as we live on a hill, I was afraid that we would have problems getting up there.
And so it was. We took an alternative way that is not so steep, but even then I just managed to get the car and us safely home. Half an hour more and it would have been too late.
Today it was all white and gloomy. I worked on yesterday’s images and stayed at home. Shortly after sundown I finally went into the garden to shoot this image. It is the JPEG right out of the camera. Nikon 18-200 at 18mm, f11, ISO 200 and 30s, taken with mirror lockup and VR de-activated for maximum sharpness.
