Frosty rose hips


Touch of red on the few remaining rose hips that the birds have left for our enjoyment in the autumn.



Frosty morning

Morning Sun behind the frosty trees

We have had several cold days this week, but the weather should be warming up a bit. This cold certainly brings us nice and sunshiny days and the clear starry nights. The amount of clothing you have to wear to keep warm. Layered clothing is the thing or just stay inside, which is the option i use the most.

We have been seeing news about Texas and other areas that are not used to winter conditions and the problems they are having…so sad.

Frozen RED berries

I found some color amongst the snow.


Countdown to 2021-21

Today: Sunrise at 9:26- Sunset 15:16- Length of day 5:50 hours – time of dusk 0:58 minutes .Two minute less of daylight than yesterday. Today is winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. It is nothing to celebrate, but it marks the end this years voyage to darkness.

Now towards the next goal counting days until Christmas eve. Today I am meeting one of my friends for lunch. She kindly invited me to meet at out local restaurant for lunch and I was not going to say no, we both have been basically staying home all the time and neither on is having any symptoms. It is so sad where we are with this pandemic. I am in a nice situation regarding this illness, that no one I know has had it, sadly this is not the case with many people, but I am lucky that way. This bubble I am in is small, I have not met many people since March when this really hit us.

Today is also the day we are going to decorate the tree. I will have to take a snap of it, even though it will look the same as it has so many years previously as I have not brought any new decorations for years. Traditionally safe look. There is something to say about traditions, this one is OK 🙂

I am really trying to come up with something to photograph, I had no inspiration. Here is slightly frost covered plants from 2013.

Lights of the festive season.

I will be posting new and old photos somehow related to winter, Christmas and eventually anticipation of new year. My aim is to take one new photo a day, but not going to stress over it, if I don’t come up with anything.

How to survive November~ 27

This needs no words, as is the case with most of my posts. The photos are supposed to speak for themselves. That is what I want to believe anyway.

How to Survive November ~26

Beautiful Frosty morning, it inspired me, out I went and took macro shots of frost covered flowers  and weeds.

Frost art by Nature

I so enjoyed taking these photos, looking at the windows full of frost flowers, trees, japanese art… and trying to find the small details that appealed to my sense of beauty, capture them.  Here is the last set for now

by the sea

I took these photos with my mobile, as it is always with me…the misty day as seen at the bay in Kivenlahti.
