snow at the botanic garden part 1.

the first snow had started to fall last week on wednesday evening and by thursday morning Helsinki was completely white. I decided to take my Nikon FM for a stroll to the botanic garden in Kaisaniemi - the temperature was just below -4°C that day.
some photographs of that snowy day at the botanic garden in Kaisaniemi:

✻ Nikon FM - Fuji Superia 1600.
the snow was still falling while I was walking around the garden - which made me feel at peace as if the time had stopped. the remaining flowers and berries were very fascinating when partly covered in snow and the water of the pool in the middle of the park had started to freeze. when my hands started prickling because of the cold - I eventually made my way inside the glass house to discover that the presence of the snow outside was changing the atmosphere indoors as well.
P.S. I will share some photographs of that snowy day at the botanic garden inside the glass house very soon!

  3. Oh how beautiful! I can't wait to see snow, but since I live in L.A. I'll have to wait until I visit the American Midwest in a few weeks! That photo with the berries looks so peaceful, as you say. It must be really strange to see white covering an entire glass building, but also incredibly beautiful :)
