The snowy weekend

November in Finland is really a strange month. Most of the time it will be wet, rainy and grey. But then, when a high pressure hits, it is fully possible that the sun shines from a blue heaven for the few hours of sunlight. The morning awakes treacherous with black ice. The streets are so slippery, that you cannot go up the hill.

Or then, you wake up one morning, and everything is covered in white. It has been snowing in the night, and a lot. The day before everything was so dark, that crossing streets without reflectors and in black clothing is dangerous for your health, since the people driving can’t see you, unless you walking under street light. But not this day, the amount of light makes even the night bright, as you can see here and here.

Went out and took a few shots, nothing special, but I have to admit, I have missed the sight of snow. As I am writing this, the snow is already gone totally, the whole day has been rainy, and the last bits are already melted.
