After 2 month of constant rain the winter finally arrived the north-western part of Germany. With temperatures below -10° C our world is freezing (we are not used to this). Compared to a "normal" winter it's amazing cold but I love it. The air is fresh and clear and a walk is a wonderful experience these days :)

I took some photos of the frozen river Ems. Usually inland water vessel run here but right now nothing goes.

It started raining this afternoon so I took maybe the last chance to take some winter photos from the city. The lake in public park was frozen and lots of people took the chance for skating there.

The most important thing Jutta, is that there is a clear sky! So you are right, it´s a bit of a lottery! I really hope you get to see it, at least once!

So, there is no special month then. I read that in march the chance is very good but I thing it depends on the sun eruptions. All in all it'll be good luck to see it ;)

The Northern Light is always best seen during the winter. Have never seen it in the summer. I´m no meteorologist, but it has something to do with the cold. Iceland is also a good place to see it. Wherever you go, just get out of the city so you are far away from the light pollution!
