Hello all! Today was the coldest morning so far and the ice - uneven and interesting - covers now "our" lake, as you can see in these pics.

The photos are not very good, but once more the photographer is too excited to make a stricter selection. They have been taken with a telephoto lens, because the ice wouldn't be strong enough for me... :)

One of my favourite quotations - even though I don't have photos to illustrate it:

"Where the glacier meets the sky, the land ceases to be earthly, and the earth becomes one with the heavens; no sorrows live there anymore, and therefore joy is not necessary; beauty alone reigns there, beyond all demands."

Halldór Laxness

Hei ja ihanaa pakkaspäivän iltaa! Yllä olevat kuvat on otettu tänään aamulla ja alla oleva puhelimella eilen illalla. Kävin auringon laskiessa leikkimässä heikoilla jäillä ja kuvasin hienosti kuvioitunutta jäätä taivaanrantaa vasten. :)
