All Lapland was nicely covered by frost some days ago when I was driving through.

A couple weeks ago, on a Sunday, I got out to the beeyard here in St. Paul, I needed to check the hives.  In November of 2016, during the just-before-winter-hive-check, we had two fairly strong hives – they were strong enough and had produced enough honey that we were comfortable harvesting honey from these hives.

It was -24 C in Finland during my xmas holiday there but it did not prevent me from photographing. Cold weather like that just requires some preparations. The most important one for your gear is to prevent condensation. Condensation happens when cold camera is brought indoors. Fog appears on lens surfaces etc and that moist can damage your camera internals as well. Preventing condensation is simple. You need put a camera inside a plastic bag before entering indoors. Wrapping camera inside a bag...

Blue 1 Blue 2 Blue 3 Blue 4 The photographs were taken on January 15th. Today was Winter Bike to Work Day . In the morning the temperature was -10 °C, in the afternoon -6 °C. So far this year I have got 612 km riding the bicycle. (Posting title is from the poem Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey, On Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour.

After a weeks of rain and mush we got outselves a crisp white and sparkling winter! Here's an old postcard-inspired photo Asko Rantanen took and made of me in honour of that. Well, two years ago actually. Today it's -20C, no one would go out and pose in the woods like that now, that'd be insane. Painfully insane. This was taken on a nice and snowy -1C day that was perfect for shooting, especially since we'd planned a snow queen shoot for weeks but it had kept on raining and we had decided on...

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken on February 21st while visiting Timmermalmi nature protection area. I noticed that Finland was being discussed in the United States, due to our health care system which has been extremely cost-efficient compared to the way health care is organised in the United States. Of course, fairness and value-for-money are not the only criteria in health care, but the proposal put forward by Trump and his minions makes me shudder - massive tax breaks to the richest...

Skull The photograph was taken on March 18th. I changed tires to my daughters' bicycles today. My own bicycle still has studded winter tires, and I'll wait until Easter to change.

House 1 House 2 The photographs were taken on February 18th. Why do some people support Trump despite the lies and misdemeanors? One explanation put forward says that people like that he "fights" despite the serious mental handicaps. But is that a thing to be admired in a person who is in such a situation?

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken in Meiko on February 25th. In six days I have got 11 hours of exercise, half riding the bicycle and half walking. Spring is coming. This morning I listened to a lark singing while I was walking across fields. (Posting title is from the poem Los Angeles by Ben Fama.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken on February 5th. Riding the bicycle was quite heavy today because of snow. In the morning it is no longer dark when I commute to work, quite a change in less than two weeks. I haven't followed the news today, so I don't know what terrible things Orange Agent may have done, but I discussed his previous behaviour with colleagues who were quite as perplexed as I am. The world is getting close to breaking point, but fortunately there are people who have the...

here we go asking for it. begging for it. longing for it. and then it comes. and we can't wait to get rid of it. traffic congests, legs shivers, pavements turns to sliptraps. Snow. You just gotta love it.

When everything is not really that white, but a lot of different hues. And cold. Oh so cold. The usual countryside photo view in it's winter mode. And my  cherry trees in theirs. (There's also a cake behind the summery cherry tree link and here's the recipe to that btw: Dream Cream Candy Cake with Cherries .) When it's very cold everything is sort of slower, in a very strange mode. I think Tove Jansson captured the cold loneliness of winter so well in the Moomin book Trollvinter . I often...

We have had incredibly snowy and cold winter in southern Finland this year. So I have had my fair share of knitting in the living room while it's been snowing outside. The newest bag is called Spring as we are really quite desperate for spring in Finland! My husband has spend a lot of time trying clear the routes from the snow. This photo shows how our little garden is filled with the snow. We even had to take some snow from the roof so that it does not get too heavy. Our youngest dog Cosmo...

Trees The photograph was taken in Helsinki on November 30th. This morning it rained while commuting by bicycle, and there was ice and wet snow on the road. The winter tires with 240 studs may be my best investment ever. On the other hand, I have used them for only two months so far, less than 1000 km, so I can't say much about durability yet.

Snow The photograph was taken on March 25th. This morning I walked two hours in Nuuksio, circling around lake Kattilajärvi. Birds were singing, woodpeckers were knocking, and ice was moaning. It is spring. Yesterday I changed summer tires to the car. One tire was stuck and it took a while to get it loose. Today I changed summer tires to the bicycle, doing some cleaning and repairs as well. The front tire is a bit worn, and I pondered whether I should replace it with a new tire, but I guess the...

Not bad - sometimes the wind has changed so that there has been headwind both ways. (Posting title is from the poem Program for The Dance by Ed Roberson.)

Blue The photograph was taken on December 17th. Today the temperature is at -4 °C. Later this week the forecast promises as cold as -20 °C weather. That would feel like winter, especially if there would be a little bit of snow as well. For two weeks we have had warm weather, and it has been dark. The length of day is today six hours, 14 minutes longer than at the shortest. (Posting title is from the poem Now you are all here you might as well know... by Thomas James Merton.)

Bird 1 Bird 2 Bird 3 The photographs of birds were taken on December 18th. We got new snow during the night. Depth of snow is 19 cm, and temperature is -12 °C. It feels like winter. I shoveled snow for half an hour in the morning. (Posting title is from the poem Talking among Ourselves by Charlie Smith.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Winter inspiration. In winter and fall collections layering is the key word and specially this editorial makes me wanna play with bright colours and prints. It seems that when it gets darker and darker grear colour combination really make the winter outfit perfect! From know on I will ditch my all black outfits and spice them up with a splash of colour. To my surprise lately I´ve found all the animal prints almost appealing. Furthermore last Friday I tried this cute fake-fur vest in Zara. To...

Yes, we do other things than just watch telly, but this pic with Foster Dad, younger foster bro, and myself was too good to pass. We were all very cumfy considering it's only a two-seater. Check out the yawn on my foster brother's face! Ruska

Snow 1 Snow 2 Snow 3 The photographs were taken at Sipoonkorpi National Park on February 20th. The road conditions for commuting by bicycle start to be quite good. Almost all ice has melted away. The public works departments have started cleaning the road surfaces, getting rid of the gravel and dirt that was deposited during the winter. In three days I have got six hours of exercise. Perhaps I should take a rest day, but it feels so good to ride the bicycle. (Posting title is from the poem...

Tämä postaus on jatkumoa edelliselle postaukselle liittyen talvikouluun. Talvikoulu järjestettiin siis jo viime kuussa, mutta kiireiden takia sain jatkettua juttua vasta nyt.

Japanilaisten esitys (unohdin mainita tekstissä) Saavuin torstaina jälleen Kankaanpäähän ja aamupäivän aikana japanilaiset vieraamme olivat ehtineet tehdä monenmoista taidetta, taidekoululla kun olivat. Itse saavuin iltapäivällä vasta Kankaanpäähän, sillä...

We just simply can’t stay out of hills the whole winter so we had to make some plans to cover our skiing desire. Our THE trip of the year will this time be to… Ylläs! We are excited because we haven’t ever been at Ylläs. It isn’t of course as good as last year’s trip to Alps but we really like Lapland as well. The trip will take place at the end of January and we will be staying there … Lue loppuun →

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken on February 21st. I thought today about Iain M. Banks' science fiction novels about the Culture, which is an interstellar utopian society. In some of the novels the Culture encounters less advanced civilisations, and gets involved in rather tricky situations in which there is no straightforward answer on how to proceed. What is happening in the United States feels almost like a plot of a Culture novel, in which an alien civilisation tries to manipulate...

Jouluun on enää kaksi yötä.. Älytöntä miten nopeasti aika menee! Tässä muutamia satunnaisia kuvia joulukuulta. Only two nights.. It feels crazy that Christmas is actually now on Saturday! Here are some random pictures of December. Sain postissa kauniin joulukortin Kreikasta kummitädiltäni. Tekisi mieli varata matka jälleen sinne Rodoksen lämpimälle saarelle missä kummitätini asuu. Matkastani on jo yli vuosi aikaa. Olisi jo korkea aika uusinta reissulle. Ehkä tulevana kesänä...
