Let it snow

Nuremberg Old Town in the Snow
2 sec | f/8 | ISO 250 | 31mm

“Let it snow” is a pop song from 1945, mostly played during the Christmas season, written and composed by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne. Sung by many, the probably most popular version of this song is by Dean Martin. And a most fitting song for today, December 1st 2020, as the Streets of Nuremberg are covered by the first snow of the season. How is that for a winter cliché? And now I’m dreaming of a white christmas 🙂

This photograph of half timbered houses in the Old Town below the Imperial Castle was taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100 F/4. Image specs are 2 secs @ f/8 and ISO 250, with a focal length of 31mm (equals 62mm in full frame). Camera was on a tripod. RAW conversion and post processing in Lightroom CC

Have a great Tuesday! And keep warm and stay safe!

  1. Wow! That image literally looks like something out of a fairy tale. My first reaction was that it was a model of a Renaissance village. As I read your post, I realized that it was a view of your city. A very beautiful image.

  2. So evocative of the cultural richesse that is Europe. I hope you (European cultures) are not losing that, or forgetting it. It looks like you are not. I envy old cultures. / My son was born in Geneva-CH on a night just exactly like this one. It had just started snowing about an hour before. And that’s kind of rare in Geneva. Even the lighting in this photo reminded me of it.

  3. Stunning picture Marcus. I love the way the light comes from out of sight off to the left. Keep you and yours safe and healthy and have a joyful season.
