snow, a lot of snow…


weekend photos #4


Snow might look beautiful…

but now we have more than enough snow in Helsinki, again.


It’s difficult to walk, drive…roads are slippery under the snow.

Imagine old people whose balance and walking abilities are not that good anymore, sigh.

This part of the pavement looks okay – to park a car…

  1. Ohhh you have had so much snow! A real winter! We are now under a cold spell and it snowed a little two nights ago, but nothing to get too excited about. The good thing (for some, that is) is that the canals and waterways are freezing up and people can actually (and finally!) go ice-skating, a favourite winter activity among the Dutch.
    But up to three days ago, this was a very unusual winter with temperatures around 6/8 degrees…
    Enjoy your friends’ visit!

  2. Hello Miss Helsinki…

    I absolutely recognize your sorroundings. It is exactly as I have.

    But capturing those beautiful shots? You rock, mate?

    Hope you had a great w/end and a wonderful week to come.


  3. HI EVERYBODY and THANK YOU for your comments!
    We had a lovely weekend with our friends and now they are on their way back home.
    Now I’ll take some time to visit your blogs.
    If I don’t visit your blog today I’ll do it tomorrow after my painting lessons.
    Have a great week ahead!

  4. That is quite some snow… so far we have managed to get through a whole winter with out any…. the key words being, so far….

    Have a lovely weekend


  5. Send a bit of it our way – – – here in central Wisconsin we still have far less snow and far warmer temperatures than are NORMAL for this time of year.

  6. That is way too much snow!! When I tell the germans here that I am glad that there isn’t too much snow, they get very offended. For an Indian, it’s very very hard to walk and do all things normal in snow. I feel like a very old grandma in snow…:D

  7. Yes it does look pretty, but sadly many will need to stay indoors for quite awhile.
    Always love the colorful signs you have. Stands out prominently against the white and gray!
    Enjoy your visit.

  8. Amazing how the snow collects on the signs and seems determined to shape its own art there! So many piles of snow are amazing! I just can’t imagine having to struggle with that each day! But it looks fascinating! And love the mystery of your shadow in the second photo! It seems like a macro of fuzzy rope!

  9. i would much rather have the snow…then when it’s winter and it rains. january 23rd we had actual rattle the house thunder and lightening rainstorm. it was crazy!! LOVE the first shot. and the last, which appears to be a piece of paper. ENJOY your company!!

  10. What? Snow in Helsinki? It was about time, but warmer days in January are always appreciated in this snowy season! Although it looks like the BMW is actually parked on a sidewalk…where to put all that plowed snow??

  11. Snow like that just boggles my mind! We rarely get snow around here. Your shadow shot is quite interesting this week, too. I had to stare at it awhile to get my bearings.

  12. I do love the first shot in particular, looks like a little snowy creature in cradle hanging from the tree! It does look cold though and I’ve had enough cold! Have a great weekend and enjoy your friends!


  13. Hi Blogitse! Sorry for the delay; Happy New Year!
