Not only galleries

Visiting a gallery can be so wonderful but this day outside on my skies couldn't have been better. The moisture must have been high this cold night close to the river as the snow crystals were formed so beautiful. I was so charmed of what I saw.

Snow activities

It's been a great weekend. The activities have varied but if we put it all together in the family we have been skiing both down hill and cross country, playing hockey and being out with the snowmobile. I hope that you also have had a great weekend with or without snow.

Artificial light

It's time to put away the star and all the other things that have been decorated the house since  the beginning of December. But I think I will keep some of it, as this star that we have in the window in our living room. We still need all the light we can get. It is dark outside when we leave the house in the morning but also when we get home. 

I know that I have redact this photo a little too much but I enjoyed the moment  when I was experimenting with it some days ago.

Five seasons

I have always felt that I divides my year in five seasons. I count the period from the middle of February to the beginning of May as a specific season and call it Spring winter. It's a wonderful time outside when I enjoy skiing very much. 

But there are others in the north part of my country with more than five seasons, they have eight! You can see their explanation from the web site visit Sapmi here:

How many seasons do you have? Vivaldi with his Quattro Stagioni, must have experienced four seasons and we know that he lived in Italy, but what is a season. Of course it depends on where you live and what climate you have. The weathermen have their explanation and facts about average temperature but when do you really feel that it is spring or autumn and not summer. This year we experienced that it was autumn on Friday when we started a weekend but full winter when it ended on Monday morning, but that doesn't happen very often as the first snow usually disappears.
