As promised, here are some more photographs taken today, using a mini-tripod, as it was too dark for handheld photography. I feel these are not too bad at all, although it may be that tomorrow I'll think differently. However, I still feel there was something magic happening today, photographs just constructed themselves whenever I took out the camera and pointed.

Of course, the internal critic soon came out and said that these photographs are nothing special, at least here in Finland. There is all too much of snow, and thousands, millions of photographs of it, and people are tired of them. But perhaps there is some point in taking more photographs, at least it seemed to be worthwhile today.

Also at work this was a good day - problems turned into insight, discussions lead to decisions and solutions, meetings were a pleasure; in all, today everything seemed to move.

Well, I guess everyone is allowed to daydream every once in a while, what do you think? Probably things didn't go so smoothly after all, misunderstandings happened, new problems turn up, and everything has to be evaluated once again. - - - But at this moment, I feel good.

Have a nice weekend!

This is certainly true for the second picture (Birches). Unusual background, tall trees and horizontal braches, as if they were inviting me further into the woods.

Thanks! Indeed, the fresh snow and the reflected city lights from the thin clouds above created a magical feeling.
