Startle-eyed as an owl by day

I'm feeling somewhat blue, so here are photographs fitting the theme.

From his desk he had a view of the street

It has been somewhat clouded recently, so I selected photographs taken when we had sunny weather, on March 16th and 17th.

While I triumph o'er a secret wrung from nature's close reserve

We got a lot of new snow today. The snow was as wet as it can be without turning into water. I shoveled snow for 40 minutes, and was quite exhausted afterwards.

These photographs were taken on March 23rd, which was a grey day in Helsinki.
