No. I'm cheating. :) It didn't look like this today. These sunny photos were taken in March last year. In reality, the weather continues to be cloudy. The temperature is around zero and the blanket of snow on the roof slides down. The photos below were taken yesterday in front of our home - and you see why we can't grow any shrubs for example in this spot.
Fortunately, all the snow slid down from the roof last night. It's rather heavy by now and definitely not something you'd want to be under when it falls.
Browsing my last year's photos, I found also these, taken in March.
Once more, the photographer's skills and perhaps her camera lens fail to do justice to the beauty of the winter weather, but you do get the point: Nature is amazing in its beauty and design.
Osallistun näillä kuvilla viikon 11 MakroTex-haasteeseen, vaikka uudemmassakin postauksessani on näkymiä maaliskuulta. Meillä on edelleen yhtä paljon lunta... ja pilvistä. Kaikki aurinkoiset kuvat ovat viime vuoden maaliskuulta!
Luonto on ihmeellisen kaunis... ja makrolinssi olisi tosiaan tarpeellinen.
Today, on the International Women's Day, I post a video for the first time ever. Remember Saudi Arabia’s driving ban for women? This is what The Independent wrote about it... and about this excellent video.
The video was published in October 2013 (I didn't have a blog yet) and many of you may have already seen it (I hope so!). However, I think it's definitely worth watching and listening, even several times. :)
Today will also begin
a series of five unforgettable matches,
AlphaGo vs Lee Sedol,
broadcast on the DeepMind YouTube channel.
