Photographer's Note

Today I want to show you again one photo of the small lake Myllyjärvi in Espoo, at the eastern edge of Nuuksio lake uplands. This photo was shot in the middle of December 2007. The lake had a thin ice cover. Coincidentally I met a man who had just returned from swimming in the lake, He had to hit a hole to the ice, which was though easy, as the ice was very thin. I was having problems in keeping my fingers warm when shooting a photo in that windy and chilly December weather and he had been swimming! Unfortunately I arrived a few minutes late to be able to take a photo of his swimming.
The light is very low the whole day just a few days before winter solstice and at 14:30 the sun was already almost hidden behind the trees of the other side of the lake. You can see the same lake shot from a rock not far from this point here. See the note of that photo. In WS is another shot from the same lake that day.
