The Gulf of Finland 19.4.2011 by BLOGitse



“In the Gulf of Finland, rotten fast ice in the archipelago.

Off the archipelago there is open water. Farther out, approximately east of the line

Muuga – Mohni – Kotka lighthouse – Sommers,

there is 20–55 cm thick ridged very close ice.

In the Bay of Vyborg and the Bay of St. Petersburg, 45–90 cm thick fast ice.”

  1. I too live on the “frozen tundra” only mine is in Wisconsin. We are just barely ice free here – – – –

    I just don’t think those bloggers who have been enjoying hot weather and are in full bloom can REALLY appreciate the advent of the season like those of us who have to thaw out first!

    Happy Easter.

  2. The sight of these lovely flowers must have made you so happy! I love them! A very interesting last photo. The greenery sprouting from what looks like pie trays is unusual and very pretty! Enjoy your easter weekend!

  3. your shadow shots are evidence that spring is gradually making an appearance – great shots. I like that you’ve shown the ice report – “rotten fast ice in the archipelago”. that’s different! happy SSS, and have a great weekend.
