Still dreaming...



... of a white Christmas, that is. This morning the ground and the very thin ice were powdered with snow.




















The shortest day of the year is not far away now. According to timeanddate.com, Winter Solstice in Helsinki is on Tuesday, 22 December 2015, 06:49 EET.

After that a little bit of light will be gained every day. :)

  1. Kaunis sininen hämärä kuvissasi. Meille sataa torstaina ehkä hiukan lunta, sitten taas vesisadetta aatonaattoon asti :( Mutta ennusteet voivat muuttua, jatketaan unelmoimista!

  2. Beautiful views, we are mid, wet and very windy at the moment. It seems to be an El Nino winter. Well I hate having to cycle in snow and ice.

  4. The winter solstice can't come soon enough for me - it gets dark here at 4pm so Amy extra minutes of light are welcome. Love that first shot Sara.

  5. Oh Sara how I wish we got a little snow here! Not a lot just a light covering! Like in these beautiful pictures you took :-)

  6. Super wintry photos. I especially like the final one. In England it's not so much Dreaming Of A White Christmas as the old Jimi Hendrix song "Still Raining, Still Dreaming"!

  7. Kyllä se lumi sieltä vielä (ennen joulua) tulee! Ja ihan hurjaa, että kohta päivä alkaa taas jo pitenemään. Tänä vuonna tämä pimeä jakso on mennytkin minulta ihmeen kivuttomasti ohi.

  11. Beautiful! Hope the snow starts falling more steadily soon! That means our days will get gradually shorter from then (our longest day!)...

  12. Meillekin tuli viime yönä kevyt lumikerros. Toivottavasti kestää jouluun saakka. Ihania kuvia sinulla!

  13. Kyllä jouluna saisi olla lunta, edes pikkuisen! Nyt on jo hieman toivoakin, että valkea joulu tulee tänne eteläänkin. Kauniit kuvat <3

  17. I am dreaming along with you and humming the song...I'm ready for more light in the morning as I'm having to wait until 7:30 am to walk our dog.
    A nice blue/gray hue to your photos.

    Will be so glad when the Winter Solstice has been & gone. I can then look forward to my favourite time of the year, Spring.

  26. Perhaps I should send you some of ours, though I don't know if I can spare any! It snowed a foot and a half over the weekend.

  27. Beautiful. Here this year is very warm. Other Decembers had snow in the mountains this year nothing: ((
    In Spain there in saying "Por Santa Lucia night dwindle and grow day.";)
    Besos.

  28. How beautiful! Here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast we are lucky to get a few heavy frosts and that's about it. I don't want a lot of snow and ice, mind you, but when it's 80 and humid, I could use a little relief lol!

    I host a Photo Friday link-up each week - I'd love it if you considered joining us!

    Stopping by from Image-in-ing!
