That shines through the things

The photographs were taken on November 9th in Helsinki.

For tonight the weather forecast promises a little bit of new snow, perhaps 0.5 cm. It would make the landscape somewhat lighter.

Or was crossing one open space for another

The photographs were taken in Helsinki on November 8th.

I commuted by bicycle. There was ice and gravel on the road, making it challenging even though I have studded winter tires.

So many and so long a time to take

Here are two pairs of photographs, first of each pair taken on November 8th in Helsinki, and the second on November 9th. We got a lot of snow then.

During last night the temperature rose to +2 °C, and snow melted. Now it is freezing again.
