It was a chance drive as at the last moment the meeting at Black Forest got confirmed. I was in Bregenz, Austria. So we headed to Black Forest.
It was a cold February winter and there were hardly any human presence on the road or on the streets. Most of the time the flakes of snow were all around. But the most interesting part of our journey was the landscapes as we were passing by. Colors are almost gone and in some places, to my utter surprise, it was almost black & white. I just wanted to document the journey but after a while I could understand that it was going beyond documentation. The shots through the windscreen were giving a retro-look, and shots taken defying the winter chill and the wind were of beautiful snowscapes reminding me of paintings. And, before dusk, we saw a beautiful twilight even when the colors came back momentarily. When we reached Black Forest, I was really awestruck with its beauty and met the Housekeeper before entering to my hotel.
