Spring in the Olympia Park, Munich, Germany
Growing up in Florida I never really encountered spring. There is just hot, and not so hot. When I moved to Munich, I realized what an amazing time of year this really is. Winters are fairly long here, and you forget how colorful things can be until around April when everything is in full bloom. Especially in the Olympia Park.
Being a photographer, I was amazed at these bright pink trees I was seeing sporadically around the city…”but where can I get a good photo??” I really wanted to get some photographs of these flowery wonders, but I didn’t particularly want a street or house in the background. Then we rode through the Olympia park, and right about here there are a whole group of them nicely perched up on a hill. All through out the park there are pink patches and it is really amazing :)
So if your in the city around mid of April (that is when the above photos were taken), you might want to pack up a picnic, take your bikes, and head to the Olympia Park to enjoy the spring. I am counting down the days!
