Just as no one can point to the source

The photographs were taken on December 4th at Pitkäkoski rapids by Vantaanjoki river in Helsinki.

I commuted by bicycle today. Because of the cold weather it was once again nice to ride across the central park in Helsinki. The paths were frozen solid, no mud at all. There was slippery ice in only some isolated spots.

During the last two weeks I did some long walks on hard surfaces using my hunting boots, and that was a mistake. My left heel has been hurting. Riding the bicycle is good exercise because it doesn't stress the heel at all. Thus the heel should be healing in no time.
