not far from Munich near the old salt trading hub city of Rosenheim the Simssee with the Alps in the background stands modestly apart from the Chiemsee; its overrun neighbour lake.
one last day, one last walk out in nature, one last day blessed with sun to photograph this year. A day to gather your thoughts and project your ideas further into a new year.
when the wind blows over the plains of the Uckermark from the south in winter you feel the whole river Oder chilling you to the bone. Other than that, a beautiful isle of nature in the middle of the never ending fields.
The frozen dew in the late autumn covers the fields and trees around the Kochelsee and melts as the sunbeams light the morning. The last of it sticking tenacious to the cold bronze sculptures in the garden of the Franz Marc Museum. All is quiet before the first guests arrive.
Not far from Berlin’s tumult of trafic, people, concrete and graffiti, the Glindower Alpen in Potsdam soothes us with forests of autumnal dark and desaturated hues.
The Glindower See on the north side of the forest reflects today the overcast dim grayish blue. The tiles Factory in Glindow. In its belly, the fire is unlit over the weekend.
