snow is here.

last year at the end of november I remember posting this wishing for the snow to come - yet it didn't until after Christmas. this winter though the snow has already come thankfully: it has been snowing for almost three days now and the whole city of Helsinki is completely white. tomorrow is the 1st of december and it already feels like Christmas.
snowy photos from Flickr Commons:
❄ some of my favourite ones.
of course I have already been out taking my own photographs of the snow - yet I wanted to celebrate especially today's snowstorm with this post while waiting for my film roll to be developed. I am so happy because everything around the city is white and it won't be so dark anymore.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and a snowy start of december too!

  5. I can imagine very well the darkness of winter (or autumn) without snow! In The Netherlands everything is grey for a few months. Maybe there will fall some snow here too these days, but it will be 'wet' snow, that melts immediately.

    So I can't wait to see your photos of the snow. ;)
