Winter is the most beautiful time of the year in Finland. At least that’s what I think. Snow makes everything so clean and it picks up the colour of the sky. That’s why the so called blue hour is extra beautiful when there’s snow. Practically everything turns blue! This particular morning, on 18 January 2013, I decided to take a walk just before and during sunrise.


This picture is taken at 10:17 and you can see the sun just rising by the church. I had taken some really nice winter photos during my walk and this is one was one of the last I took before heading back to my office. The wooden church is like a yellow jewel in the snowy small town landscape. Snowmobiles have drawn lines on the frozen river. I remember it being at least –15° Celsius this morning. The trees are not always snowy like they are here. A little wind may blow that away and the visual magic is gone. But it happens a few times every year that our landscape is decorated like this and it’s like a wonderland.
