We have seen the best of our time

The photographs were taken on December 29th at Helsinki Olympic Stadium.

The length of day is now over an hour longer that it was at the shortest, and it is getting 1/2 hour longer each week. But what is not so good is the temperature, which is once again above 0 °C, which means that the streets are wet and muddy.

Like a flowering tree and smelled sweet

The day before the day

The photograph was taken on December 29th.

The day is an hour longer than it was at the shortest. It is not dark when I commute home, and that is quite a change.
