Finally, we have snow. Usually, we have a lot of snow and -20 degrees of Celsius at this time of the year but not this year. I don't know if it's the global warming of what but strange it is anyway. I don't miss any more snow but it's good to have a little. Of course I had to go out with my camera especially cause the sun was shining.

I went to Tallinpiha, it is a small outdoor place where you can ride by horse or drive dog sledge, drink coffee and eat pancakes in a Laplander's hut and buy handicrafts. Coffee tasted good in a smoky tepee.



This gorgeous Finnhorse had an old style cart. You could have a ride but I left him chewing hay while continued my walk.


I checked open waters in purpose to find birds. I found only some Mallards and this strange thing! Do you guess what it could be?


It's a woman. She is swimming there! Crazy Finns, aren't we.

It´s been such a beautiful day! Lots of snow AND sunshine, what could be better on a winterday?

The power of light is mighty!

Wonderful pictures. I have a similar one of two old guys taking a dive in the Neva in St. Petersburg back in 1988 with me standing next to the shore, teeth chattering, and wearing my warmest winter coat. =)

Snow? What's that?
Everything has melted again over here.

Thanks! I didn't even considered to undress and jump into the water.

Snow. It's that white stuff. I added it by Photoshop to those pictures. :)

Well, you could have left your kalsarit on. =D

That would be polite but why bother! After such swimming experience the little brother becomes so teenyweeny that you can call him the invisible midget!

We have a Space Needle in Toronto, and your structure made me think of it. By the way, I have wanted to ask you if I could use some of your spectacular photos from the graveyard for wallpaper on my notebook. There was one of an angel and two closeups of fall leaves that fell to the ground.

Wow, yours look much higher and modern if I compare it with ours!

Of course you can use my pictures! Do you mean this post? http://korpun.livejournal.com/62426.html
Just let me know, I can email you full size photos.

Well thanks for allowing me to use your photos, and I don't think I need a larger size. I'm thinking that I should change the wallpaper each season when you've taken my breath away with snow and then flower buds or just a shot of architecture in all its majesty on a sunny day when the sky is a brilliant shade of blue.

Excuse me for interrupting, but I just have exclaim
Oooooh, Toronto!!! here. The CN-Tower, and Skydome! I love it. I'd love to see it again, someday. ♥

Hehe, pretty nice pictures in my LJ!

I'm from Montreal, and we have a not so friendly rivalry with Toronto that started with our hockey teams I think. At this point, we just feel culturally superior and that sounds really awful to say but it's true. We can't help being more interesting !


I hope you realize that I'm joking.

Montréal is also very nice. ♥ I want to go back. Last time I've been to Montréal was back in 1992. Last time in Toronto 1999. Almost ten years, and it feels like yesterday. Time goes by so incredibly fast!

Snow all over Europe... yesterday morning everything was white powdered also, for a few hours... Great photos, maybe I´ll think about a winter vacation next year. It´s so beautiful!
Feb. 4th, 2008 09:03 pm (UTC)
Winter vacation. hahaha. That's what a friend of mine thought, too, this year. Let's hope we'll have a real winter again next year. This year, our winter was absolutely ridiculous.

I suggest that you travel to Lapland if you would like to see snow!
Feb. 5th, 2008 12:59 am (UTC)
I hope someone had an icepick ready for when that woman came out of the water! yes, you Finns are crazy, that's why I love it there.

looks like a fun day and I have to admit the snow looks beautiful, especially since I can see it in photos and not have to drive in it. tomorrow the high temperature here will be nearly 20 degrees celsius!
Feb. 5th, 2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
PLUS 20 degrees? You're kidding. It's February. I was sweating today, and we have plus 3 at the moment. =D
