I've been exporing Munich recently and realised that pulling together a quick spark page now and again is a handy way of sharing waht I've found. Here're are some images from a few weeks back when everything was -10C and I had a free Sunday. With all the shops closed, (Sunday trading hasn't made it to Bavaria yet) , I figured I'd go for a walk along the river Isar and take a few photos.
It was 11am by the time I got going, so the light was harsh, but it was nice to be out on a crisp clear sunny day. Just taking pictures for a record of where I'd been and what I'd seen was a nice change too.
The thing is: It obviously is quite hard to surf here. As much I had the utmost respect for these nutters getting in the water, I wasn't getting the sort of pictures I wanted.
My pre-conceived ideas also weren't help by a low sun casting shadows onto the wave and everyone wearing black wetsuits. How very inconsiderate!
So, it was time to change tack, try some different angles and shoot for a more documentary approach...
With ice everywhere and nothing but a wall of tourists to stop me ending up in the river: thought was going to be required.
