Freezing Suolijärvi lake on a chilly afternoon. I was planning to give a title 'Freezing Face' but I'm just fed up with the current weather. After a couple of cold weeks in November it has been dark and damp in Tampere. No proper winter, no snow, no sunshine.
Uploaded the colour version just to show that there's no colours. Even greens of the spruce trees look almost black against snow.

No snow? Come to Barcelona where the snow is a dream.... :P
The view is lovely. Great. I like the contrast of the snow with the trees.

Very interesting freezing face.
I don't worry about warmer winters.
I worry about hotter summers :-/

Thanks for reminding us what winter is supposed to be (it's almost 10 degrees here in Canada and the sun isn't even up yet!).
I love the composition and the shapes and textures you have captured for us here: it's a gentle winter rather than a harsh one that you have portrayed.

Wonderful reflection of the beauty of Finnish nature.

The circles on the lake make for a nice composition, Kari. It definitely has that not-quite-winter feel, of slush and wet snow. I think it would be better if you had something more in the foreground, especially along the bottom, to better frame the lake, so the image is lees of a 50-50 split between lake and forest. But it's still very pretty! Regards, Ken.

now,I'm more surprised,after I see your picture..if in Finland is not snow what happened with that?we have snow just in mountains..very good contrast between the snow and the trees and those circles makes the composition interesting..

A very interesting scene from winter...I guess it is a lake?? The circles are in grest harmony. Nice shot.

Nice snow graphical shapes and good framing!
