Caption

It was terribly cold on Easter Sunday this year. Just a few minutes after I shot this panorama it began to snow again. But no matter if the weather is good or bad a little walk in the woods is always a good idea after a delicious brunch with family and friends at my mother's home.

The house (and that strange "temple") on the other side of the river are relatively new. A long time ago my parents lived in a little bungalow on that property and that was actually the place were I started my life - it was a home birth.

The river's source a few kilometers in the south is Lake Starnberg, both carved into the ground during the last glacial period several thousand years ago. The term Würm glaciation is used for that period, named after this river. It's a small stream but with a strong current and so my parents decided to let me and my twin sister have swimming lessons when we still were babies.

The grown family soon needed more space for the children and moved to a different house in the same village where we still meet to celebrate holidays and birthdays.
