Snow 1 The photograph was taken November 4th. This morning I walked 1 1/2 hours, climbing hills and meeting people walking dogs. A little bit of snow colored the paths white, and temperature was at -1 °C. Yesterday and today I'm driving the car a lot. Not my favourite pastime.

View The photograph was taken at Soidinsuo swamp in Nuuksio on April 1st. This week I have commuted through the central park in Helsinki. I had forgotten how good it feels. And today I met horses both in the morning and afternoon while riding the bicycle. During the winter one needs to go through crowded streets and stop at traffic lights in Pasila. Also, I realized today that this winter I didn't crash while riding the bicycle in slippery conditions. I installed studded winter tires quite...

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken on January 1st. This morning I drove the car to a repair shop. In the afternoon I talked with the auto mechanic, and it turned out there was nothing wrong with the motor, just a piece of metal loose and making noise against the exhaust pipe. However, the car window that was stuck in the down position required some work for the old motor to be replaced. (Posting title is from the poem Wind, Water, Stone by Octavio Paz.)

Swamp 1 Swamp 2 The photographs were taken at Oittaa on December 26th. Almost all snow has melted away.

Snow The photograph was taken on April 14th at Tremanskärr swamp. This is a rainy day. I have been doing a bit of writing, and some reading is in the program as well. The rain may stop in the afternoon, and then it might be a nice time to go for a walk. Yesterday I got well over three hours of walking, and there was plenty of other stuff as well, for example going shopping with the daughters. (Posting title is from the poem Heart’s Needle by W. D.

Snow 1 Snow 2 The photographs were taken on December 1st. It has been raining today, with thick cloud cover, and even at noon it felt like the sun would still be below the horizon. I went for a walk. In five days I have got 10 hours of walking, and because the roads and paths have been icy, it has been slower going than usually. There is very little snow left, making the landscape dark.

View 1 View 2 View 3 The photographs were taken on February 17th in Helsinki. Yesterday I walked for three hours in Petikko, across the snow-covered fields and forests. By the Petikko golf field there were bird observers with telescopes and tripods by the roadside, and when I walked up the snow-covered field they asked whether I had seen anything. "Just landscape", I answered. (Posting title is from the poem We're Just about to Observe the Edge of the Universe by Albert Goldbarth.) Posted by...

The snow was frozen, but didn't carry a person walking, except in places where there were ski tracks or tracks from animals.

Hei täällä Snow White, eikun Ninna, eikun Lumikki.. Damn I don't know! ;)    Kertokaa toki miksi minä näytän pelottavan paljon Lumikilta, eikun Ninnalta?   Ja antakaa anteeksi pitkätukka tytön väsyneet silmät ja maahan lyöty ilme. Silä ei ole vahvin päivä tänään. Kohta se menee kuitenkin piristys kahville rakkaan naisen kanssa ja sitten sille tulee kivempi mieli. Ei mulla muuta eikä Lumikillakaan.

Lake 1 Lake 2 Lake 3 The photographs were taken by lake Suolijärvi at Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor are in Hyvinkää on December 28th, 2017. We got plenty of snow today. Commuting by train went well, but because of the snow it took some effort to get the car moving from the parking place at the station. The weather station at Helsinki-Vantaa airport got crazy, claiming the the depth of snow is 54 cm when yesterday it was 6 cm. I think the actual depth of snow is 30-35 cm.
