Twitching to bury my boring eyes

Yesterday I had some trouble with uploading photographs to Flickr from Aperture, each time the process stopped after a while. But today things seem to work once again.

These photographs were taken on February 2nd in Meiko, walking to lake Tränuhals and back from the bus stop at the roadside, which took two hours in all. There was 15 cm of new snow on top of the old, and nobody had walked in Meiko before me - at least not where I walked. In some places the snow had piled on drifts, up to 30 cm in depth, but mostly it wasn't that hard to walk in the fresh snow.

It was quiet and I felt calm. I did get a bit lost on the return part of the walk, but that was all right, there was no hurry.

Peaceful quiet images... Nice.

Peaceful, that is the right word for the mood. This place is far enough from human habitation so that there is no road noise or other such things.
