This is an early spring view nearby my previous summer upload. Lake is still solidly frozen on lake Höytiäinen, but spring sunshine has melted snow away from the island on the left.
Winters are significantly longer and more snowy in Polvijärvi, which is about 400 km northeast from Tampere, where I live.

Well balanced picture, with nice perspective.
The decisive element is the vegetation on the foreground.
A good note too.

Hi Kari. I love to see photos of snow and ice but I am a warm climate person and summer is my favorite season. Well captured, I love the colours in the dry grasses in the FG. Nice work and thanks for sharing.

Good to see you join me in promoting the winter, even though this is an archive photo I see... Well exposed view where we can see the nature is on its way to catch up.
Have a nice day JY

What a wonderful corner, Kari! I love your winter version but I can also feel some spring in the air as there seems to be a little bit of water in the ice coming through but maybe I just followed your text about spring and there is nothing but ice. Nice the little house peaking through and I guess soon enough the leaves will hide it. My father-in-law spent 20 summers (on his own) in this area renting a little hut with no light and he was painting and fishing the whole summer through ... he is pretty wild, I know, but a wonderful painter and a great architect. I guess I will show him this and I hope he draws me a Finland winter version (if I behave ...). Enjoy your Monday ... Barbara.

thanks for adding this one up and completing somewhat my request. The difference is really striking. The composition with the yellow in the front and the dark trees standing up in the foreground is very good.
Can I have another request? :-)
Choose a POV and have the same shot during the four seasons and present it as a single post in about 1 year. ;-)

Captures the essence of spring really, these grasses, almost appear to colonise the snow. And habitation, a little island of warmth.

Remains of the winter?
For me this seems deep winter :-)
Beautiful golden colour over the snow.

I like the soft colours in this, Kari - it has a real winter feel to it. I think it could have done with a little more contrast though. I tried a workshop to see how much additional contrast it would take. The difference is subtle but I think it improves it. Cheers . . . David
