The view from my windows











Need I say Berlin is freezing?
The frost on my windows is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

  2. Incredible! How come my windows don't have any of that gorgeous frost? Is Charlottenburg warmer than Friedrichshain? :)

  4. I never thought I'd miss the patterns of ice freezing on windows. Haven't seen that in three years now and I miss it!

  5. Absolutely amazing! The pattern in the second picture makes me think of Arts and Crafts wallpaper.

    2. Thanks for the link, very nice ones. I love ice on leaves and the bike shot is amazing. I love snow :-) it just started over here in north italy as well. They predict 10 cm snow fall. Can't wait to walk on it and take pictures too.

  9. Toll diese Eisblumen. Die sind ja ganz wundervoll. Ich habe immer nur Wasser am Fenster. Vielleicht sollte ich mal das Heizen einstellen.
    Dir einen tollen, sonnigen Tag.

    Liebe Grüße allesistgut

  13. Unglaublich schön ist das, Sandra. Obwohl es in Wien auch mehrere Minusgrade hat, werde ich in meiner Neubauwohnung nicht mit derartig schönen Blumen beschenkt.

    but what a beauty it gave

  15. Do you have single-glazed windows? (We do , but it never gets that cold here, so they mostly just get wet in winter)

    1. double, but they are 112 years old :)

    2. Ah, that's really interesting, I didn't know there was double-glazing that long ago! I think our house it from the 1930s or so, not quite as old. :-)

  18. On a list of things I miss from my childhood, Eisblumen (ice flowers) would rank pretty high.:)

    I think they're not so much a function of the cold and/or the heating, however, but have to do with the windows. You hardly see them anymore because modern windows have two or three layers of glass with air inbetween as insulation. Yours probably consist of just one pane. As pretty as the effect is, you may want to talk to your landlord about getting new windows -- otherwise you're losing a tremendous amount of heat. In the meantime, _do_ take lots of gorgeous photos.:)

    1. thanks for the tip! i love my 112 years old (double) windows so much that it's worth losing some heat during the winter :) they make me happy every day.

  20. Ich habe heute Morgen nach dem Aufwachen auch erstmal die Eiskristalle im Küchenfenster fotografiert, schön dass der Winter auch endlich in Berlin angekommen ist. :)

  21. OMG! This is so beautiful! What a treat, thank you for sharing!

  22. These pictures are amazing Sandra!
    They remind me of childhood winters here in the UK, when the snow would be three feet deep and the would be a half inch of ice just like this on our windows. I wish I had had a camera back then and I wish we could have winters like that again. :)

  23. wow - you find the motifs for your photos in the most incredible places.....our temperatures are the worst in more than 25 years, but we do not have as incredible windows as you have, despite my appartment being very difficult to warm up, hence wearing a pair of your wrist worms indoors
