A calm winter landscape

    Looking through a few "old" photos today, I stopped at this calm winter landscape taken a few years ago with my IXUS 430. Maybe because it's such a warm, sunny summer day today, this shot gave me a good contrast to what I was seeing through the window.

    This capture is from the town where I grew up, Ekenäs (Tammisaari), a picturesque town that is tranquil in the winters, but come alive in the summers.

    Highest flickr explore / interestingness position: #19

    Looking the other way (different season).

      Great shot. Wish I could do the same with my IXUS 430. Not much snow around here though.

      Vishnu: It has actually been a quite warm winter this year. We had almost no snow at all. Perhaps you should try a Finnish summer instead :)

      I'm a new admin for a challenge group called You vs. the Best. Your image would be a wonderful challenger in You vs. The Best - Seas, Lakes, and Rivers category - We'd love to have you compete! You'd have to play strong through 5 grueling rounds of 10 votes to become the winner - a tough challege but I think this photo has the power to become a champion. Please consider it!
