My Sunday Miracle

Miracle
Miracle | Moosbach | 2017

Like many places on this planet we were blessed with plenty snow this weekend. As I’m fighting a really nasty cold I didn’t use the opportunity to head into Nuremberg to photograph in the snow covered city. But Sunday late afternoon my significant other more or less kicked me out of the house for a little walk in the woods and fields behind our house. Initially I didn’t want to take a camera, but then again, which photographer leaves the house without one?  So I grabbed the PEN-F and we headed out the door.  And sure enough, in the trees just behind the house my little miracle happened.  For the story and a couple more snowy sunset photos from Frankonia continue reading after the jump…..
