Last time I was in Helsinki during the summer I posted a photograph Summer in the City (seen above), now that I am back in Helsinki I have taken a similar image. The view was of Helsinki Harbor and the Finnair Skywheel. This time instead of a couple enjoying the sun I was greeted with an ice covered sea. See Winter in the City below.
In Lapland winter is always coming. For a majority of the year the landscape is covered in snow and the temperatures often drop well below zero. After the Ruska period the leaves fall from the trees and the first frost isn’t far behind.
The collection of photographs below are an account of the Transition between autumn and winter.
Do you think this is a dramatic change? Is this what you would expect from life above the Arctic Circle?
In response to the theme Pattern.
