Winter pictures

I guess this qualifies as a proper winter. Sunset at 14:20 (2:20PM). Snow on the ground...

and ice on the river. That thing in the front is a sheet of ice left ashore when the winds changed direction. In long and narrow seas like the Gulf of Bothnia the wind can drive the water up into the bay or out. Here the sea level dropped by a meter in a week.

A bunch of bikes at one of the entrances. Only two rows of bike parking today. Monday and -18°C temperatures might have something to do with it. Even long johns and jeans are a bit chilly for long rides as they are not windproof.
