We had the first snowfall of this winter in Copenhagen last evening, and it snowed through the night.

No matter how many times you have seen and experienced it, and despite all the practical difficulties afterwards, the first snowfall every year has a magical touch to it which most people cannot ignore. I took some photos this morning even as it was snowing: of course, the sky was grey and the ground (and every other surface) was white, so the photos are not as exciting as the feeling itself.
But we had better luck later in the day as the sun came out just before saying bye with a glorious sunset. The three of us (Maitreyee, Sohini and I) couldn’t stop ourselves from capturing the golden moments. Here are some snapshots from those moments.
