PADs #104–108

This week was a week of crazy skies and beautiful light.

PAD #104 | “Sunrise” | Around 8:30 a.m. at my office, I saw the sun rise above the hills surrounding Marburg. Recently, sunrises have been extraordinarily beautiful around here.

PAD #105 | “Morning light on the city” | As the title says. Morning light, shortly after sunrise, diffused by a slightly overcast sky, hitting the historical upper city of Marburg.

PAD #106 | “Storm front” | About mid-week, we were experiencing some heavy storms all throughout Germany. Fortunately, the city of Marburg is situated safely between hills to the west and east, so it doesn’t get hit by strong winds easily. Still, we had some pretty crazy weather here.

PAD #107 | “Where there is light” | … there also is shadow. The steep afternoon light hit this palette, causing strong shadows on the wall. The fire extinguisher and warning sign add two random spots of colour to this picture otherwise dominated by the same, repeating pattern of light and dark.

PAD #108 | “Sunset” | This set started with a sunrise, and it ends with a sunset of equally rare beauty (at least by the local standards).
