I wanted to look at the wintry Gulf of Finland, the gulf of the Baltic Sea. In the summer I often swim and sunbathe on the hot yellow sand there, my summer house isn't far from it.
It was 10 a.m. A frost was -10 C (14 F) and have been hard to take photos: luminosity was low, the temperature was quite low for my camera.
The bright orange sun rays have made their way through the clouds.
This area of the Gulf of Finland was covered with ice. If you look at the horizon, you can distinguish the dark spots. These are fishermen. In next picture, the figures of fishermen are larger.
They've come to ice fishing early at the weekend morning, done holes in the ice, put their fishing rods and sat, waiting for the fish to catch. New flocks of titmice flew in to feed, they had noticed the rest of the autumn red apples in neighbors' gardens, seeds and berries in feeders.
In cold days titmice really need of unsalted bacon piece and neighbors have hung a small piece to feed them.
It was nice, but cold day; after lunch I met my neighbors with their pets. The pets were all well dressed in coats, woolen socks and even running shoes were on the dogs' feet.
