I didn’t upload any photo of my hometown Lübeck since some time but now I will show you a new one. This week I had to visit one of the authorities and I really dislike bureaucracy, but on the other side it’s good because I can use it to take a walk in the morning.
On the photo above you can see the Trave River and behind the river you see the city view of the historic district. You can also see the St. Mary’s Church in the background, we call that one Marienkirche in German. As you can see, my smartphone camera had to fight with the darkness of the morning, I reduced the noise of the image with Lightroom, otherwise the photo would look even worse. So, the photo is more of a snapshot and shows just a very tiny part of the river and the city view.
As you can see, it is also still a little bit cold here. I’d say the winter came late, because the weather was more autumnal in December and January. It became colder this February, but even then it’s a complete joke compared to other winters and I wouldn’t call it a real North German winter.
I was usually someone who disliked the fear mongering of the media about the climate change, but sometimes I really get the impression that the climate change is indeed happening. I think I believe more in it since some time as the weather did change the last years and the start of the weather seasons moved strangely as well. It’s just strange if the January for example rather feels like an autumn month, and if you see ice and snow for the first time in February but with moderate winter temperatures. It’s as if the weather seasons moved months forward. It’s a little bit crazy in my opinion.
