The weather has been a mixture of dark grey clouds without even a small glimpse of the sun, heavy snow and a little bit of rain lately. I went out for the countryside around my hometown Lemgo anyhow. Even though I couldn't get to the location I initially intended to go to due to snow blocked roads, I found a very nice spot and had the extreme luck of the sun peeking through the clouds just before dusk.
I will publish two other (different) shots of this same situation in the next days, both creating very different impressions of one scene by different framing and exposure.
