A SHort Winter Ride

No, the weather was not inviting. It was windy and wet, temperatures around freezing. But in the afternoon the sun broke through the clouds for a moment or two and I decided to go for it.

Not just the weather is a challenge, finding h-words is also a challenge. Finding Q’s was easier. Here is what I came up with.

At the beginning of my ride, I spotted this chimney that looked a bit different from the usual ones.
A chimney from the end of my ride, kind of nice perched on top of the roof like that.
With the turret on the corner, the house almost looks like a little chateau.
Shoots from some kind of cover crop for the winter.
My shoes, or are they boots? Shoelaces, anyway.
Wheel with a whirly background.
Three past three on the church tower in Buchendorf
Sheaves of grass (rather proud of finding that one)

I thought I would try a path through the woods today, just for a bit of variety. To my chagrin, I soon was confronted with snow and big puddles. Not dangerous but not at all to my liking, so I turned back. None of those shenanigans for me.

This path will have to wait for drier days.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    I never get tired of seeing your pictures and telling you how great they are. I just hope you didn’t park yourself in front of that church tower for too long. Only a doofus like me would wait more than a couple hours for that magical “THree past THree hour just for a clever photo.

      Thanks, Greg! And the THree past THree was more hindsight and serendipity.

    Some nice chimneys, especially the first one.
    Weather hasn’t been the best here either, 2 days riding out of 9 now 🙁

    The green crop looks like it might be winter wheat? I looked up and found Germany grows a lot of it.

      I’ll keep my eye on the field and see what grows. WHeat, right!
