Still Snowing

I have been watching the weather change, yesterday it snowed again and I went to the patio to capture it with my backyard view as a backdrop.

Three weeks I have been home and the cough continues, I am so tired of this. I have been watching the weather change from really to cold to the plus with grey skies and melting snow. Yesterday it snowed again and I went to the patio to capture it with my backyard view as a backdrop.


In spite of been stuck at home I decided to participate to a challenge 52 frames. One photo a week on a certain topic. The first one was my BW selfie I took just at the beginning of my omikron journey, the second of my frosty tree. I am working on the third.

These shots have nothing to do with the challenge, obviously, other than that the scene is the same as in my previous shot, my backyard view. I took some more artistic liberties with the featured image at the top, does it work, or not?

and it snowed

Yesterday we had bad weather, it snowed and was windy, that condition on the roads were really awful. There was a major car accident on the freeway, 88 car collision. Ten people were taken to hospital. it took them six hours to clear it. Also several other smaller ones, not a graet day to be on the road.

I am so happy that I was able to watch and photograph the snow blizzard through my window from the warm comfort of my home.

Today it is snowing – a lot. We also had some snow yesterday. Winter has arrived to the Southern Finland. I have some new photos from our backyard and from the window from my office at home. This a small reality check between the memory lane of travels. Many years we have escaped this time of the year to the warmer lands to find sun and more pleasant temperatures.

Countdown to 2021-4

It’s snowing! It’s Friday! It’s Weekend!


I got out of bed 9:20, as do not have to hurry to go nowhere. It was dull gray no sigs of brightening at all, and it didn’t, it started to snow, side ways.

Friday again, I am not able to keep track of the days anymore as they tend to be all the same. Same, Same but different. I had to check from the newspaper really Friday. It was 🙂 Nothing to write about – so this is todays post!

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.

I edited the originals a bit and also used cream tones in the other set, for some reason those appeal to me more. We’ve had some snowfall today, winter is back. Unfortunately so are the low temperatures too.


maybe we will have a white Christmas after all… I certainly hope so.

Today the first snow of the winter came just during traffic hours…I should not do this, but as I had my camera with me today. I did shoot and drive…photos 🙂
