Lumikatsaus ... Snow watch

Helmikuun nimi lienee selvä kun katselee joitakin näistä kuvista. Helmiäisen hohtoa kun lumessa on aurinkoisella ilmalla.

The name of February in finnish translates to pearl month. Why it's called this probably has its roots in how the snow glissens like pearls when the sun comes out.

Jäällä on mukava viettää aikaa, voi hiihtää ja kaivaa itsestänsä lapsi esiin!

Wonderful snow pictures! I like the pine very much, a little bit Asian painting.

You have a gift for capturing snow scenes. All are lovely. Some have such glorious light and shadows!

Ollut todella upeita päiviä viime aikoina. Töissä oleminen tuntuu joinakin päivinä niin turhalta. Lumikiva muksuille oli oikein hauska!
