Winter Wonderland


The ice holds now. Winter in Finland is truly mesmerizing.


It's cold. The days appear short and it gets dark by 3:30 pm. Hoar frost covers everything. The snow squeaks under one's boots.


I tried to focus the camera lens on these frozen cobwebs, but my hands were too cold to hold still.

Milla, me ollaan Lappajärvellä Etelä-Pohjanmaalla. Just nyt ei ole muuten mitään kadehdittavaa näissä keleissä: nollan hujakoilla mennään, ja räntää tulee kolmatta päivää putkeen... Hyvää Uutta Vuotta myös teille! :)
