I love these dramatic clouds combined with some sunshine, ice, and fog! It was such a great scene. Ice are now gone and the water is free at that site. I really like that spring time is finally here.

Here is another shot where you can see the melting ice better:

Fog is rising

Young birches

This was mid-day in Finland in 5th of December. Now it is even darker. Weather was quite dull but the birches were fantastic.

It is possible to find really unique photo oppportunities when we have the darkest time of the year. It just needs more trying because not so much light available.

I would prefer the real winter

We have + 6 degrees C and rain. Really a depressing weather. Snow brings so much light into our dark days and now almost all snow has smelted. Hopefully the weather is going to cool down soon and we could have a white Christmas time.
