No Snow

No Snow

Gray clouds over a tree at the Wasserkuppe mountain, at 950 m (3,120 ft) the highest elevation in the federal state of Hessen. At this time of the year, there usually is a lot of snow – but not now.

Fair Tower

Fair Tower

Frankfurt’s Fair Tower (Messeturm), seen through the branches of a tree (and from my balcony :-)) at sunset, Nov.11. Between 1991 and 1997, the 256 meter-high (840 ft) tower was the highest office building in Europe, which now I believe is the Mercury City Tower in Moscow (338 meters, 1110 ft).
