During my Christmas holiday in Germany in 2010 I took the bottom photo. We had a very cold week but lots of sunshine. It is a picture I like and every once in a while look at.  When I came back to the same place last Christmas I instantly remembered the first image and tried to take the same photo again. This time here was no snow at all and it was a lot warmer. It is interesting to see how the same place can look so different.
