A wonderful winter day in near Fiskars, Finland. We spent the weekend there (Kisakallio sports institute to be precise) celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Finnish Kendo Association. The weather was just perfect: sun shine, snow and cold (-10C).

This is the sauna building. As you can see in the picture, the lake was partially open, not frozen that is. The most courageous ones went for the fresh dip from the sauna.

Sunday breakfast

It's so nice to take time for a breakfast on Sunday mornings. Simply a cup of hot tea and fresh croissants can taste really wonderful!

When pouring the tea, the hot steam made interesting shapes with the sun-light in the background. I tried to catch some of them.

At the beach

Last Sunday I went for a walk at the beach of De Haan. The light was so beautiful as the sun was quite low even during the midday. The high tide was over and the sea was retreating once again. A perfect Sunday walk...

Warm winter

The winter has been really warm and wet. Some of the trees are already behaving like it was spring. Others are trying to hold on to the leaves of the last summer. Strange!
