Grüner See without water
the Grüner See – Green Lake- dried out in December

The Grüner See almost completely dried out in this unusual dry Winter. In normal years, there’s still some water left, but this year you can walk through with dry feet.

The difference between sun and shadow

On a frosty December morning, high above the Green Lake, the frosted forest, still in the shadows, and the rocks behind, bathing already in full sunlight.
