This week I finally had time again to go out and gather some new material in my part of the world. Even though I regularly travel for work and pleasure, I feel blessed to be living in the Eifel-Hunsrück area. Really enjoy the variety of the landscape between, for example, the vineyards hugging the slopes of the moselle, and the wide views with fields of different crops on the "highlands".
This week's photo was taken on the highlands of the the Hunsrück near Pellingen. Even though it was still rather cold (around 3 degrees) in the morning, and the remnants of recent snowfall are still visible, the fields already show the early onset of spring, heralding the end of winter (not that we had much of a winter this year). As you can see, the farmers have already started ploughing the land in preparation for the new crops.
