Berlin in the fresh snow

Last Monday morning I woke to discover that the grey, dreary Berlin I had known of late had unexpectedly transformed into a winter wonderland. Overnight, the heavens had opened and coated the city with a heavy blanket of snow that lay thick across the capital. Doubly blessed with clear skies, low beams of sunshine unleashed a glimmering landscape of diamonds sparkling in the cool light.

I bounced out of bed, threw on some clothes, fumbled for the whereabouts of my beanie and gloves, snatched the camera and raced outside. This was a morning not to be missed.

Can you believe that this thick frosting only lasted a total of three days? Warmer temperatures that pushed above freezing quickly initiated the melt, meaning that Berlin’s bright and clean new cloak disappeared all too suddenly. I’m hoping for more snowy Mondays soon.
