Höfling is one of many villages that sit atop a hill, but in this case the hill happens to separate Europe - the snow on the "side towards the car with the open trunk" will melt to flow towards the North Sea, while the snow towards the birch will end up in the Black Sea. This is part of the main European watershed, a not-so-imaginary line that separates the continent into parts where rivers run towards the Atlantic or the North Sea and the other half where the water flows towards the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.

Apart from that, it seems i've crossed some territorial border - at least the dog kept on announcing my presence, so I guess I must've stepped on his ground. Oh, and there's a bird in the picture that kept on signalling that this was his area. Can you spot it?

Behind the scene : a good idea, and a timing waaay off...
