The Blue Hour

We finally have snow here in Wiesbaden! This is the first time since the Tuesday before Christmas (the day when we were going to fly to Finland). I was later told, that the snow melted the same day.

It began to snow in the afternoon and by the evening we actually had some snow on the ground, too. Thus, we we able to experience true Blue Hour, when the scattering light of the setting sun turned everything blue. The effect is so much better, when there is snow on the ground reflecting the blue light!
(If only the sky had been clear, it would have been even better. But let's just enjoy the snow!)

Now we can only hope that it stays white for a bit longer this time!

Before sunset.
'Where's the snow?' you might ask. The rooftops are usually dark...
