Soon they’ll throw snowballs! We have already had some minus degrees (C) in the night time and some mornings have been quite “crispy”. Haven’t had so much time for photographing that I’d wanted though.
Autumn has arrived in its full power. It is quite chilly and rainy now. But autumn provides nice photo opportunities with all fall colors, mushrooms etc.
I am very pleased on Fuji X100’s close-up capabilities. Macro mode works well and it is possible to use back button to focus if using MF focusing (the focus ring in the lens is totally unusable). Above pic is shot using available light but if you need fill flash the X100 is very handy to provide some additional light automatically. Flash shots are very natural looking. I think X100’s flash is the best in-camera flash I have encountered.
As we are now having some plus degrees, snow is melting. Well, we have so much snow that our boys are able to use their sleds still but now I feel that spring is really approaching. It is a great feeling; sun is shining and my mood is high!
Kaapo’s godfather Tommi brought an old kicksled for us. I and Tommi fixed it and now it is in the working condition and has a new red paint on it.
It really moves fast and is very handy here in countryside when you want to go from place A to place B in the winter time.
We are having new snow at this very moment. I am not that happy about it because it seems that we are going to have spring time in June or so. Sigh.
This morning it was -23 C still so it seems that our spring is not starting very soon. Although sunshine is somehow warming up already but it is not intense enough to melt the snow if the base temp is so low. I am now counting spring all those days when we will not get any new snow. I think that is a very good rule now and gives nice spring feeling at least.
