One Word Photo Challenge – Hail

I had to go a little bit back in time although we had hail only just recently here. But I didn’t have my camera handy and it did not have the same significance as it had all those years ago.

Coming from Switzerland originally I sometimes crave being at home and seeing snowflakes falling from the sky. It was on the Swiss National Day back then when the sky suddenly turned really dark and it started to hail. After only a couple of minutes it looked as if it had snowed outside. Everything was white. It didn’t last for very long but enough to give the impression of a fresh layer of snow to me. One happy Swiss-Australian 🙂
