This rough blanket

The photograph was taken on January 13th.

I'm planning a long walk this morning. The temperature is -16 °C, one of the coldest days so far this winter.

Above the soft sweep of the breathless bay

The photographs were taken on January 10th at Majvik.

I walked this morning for two hours, exploring the 20-30 cm deep snow fields in Petikko. It was bright even though the sun was low on the horizon.

Now, this is it

The photographs were taken on January 8th at Sipoonkorpi.

We are having cold weather, -12 °C in the morning. And plenty of sunshine. The length of day is 9 h 26 min, which feels great.
