Icy Saimaa

My friend and editor Soila Lehtonen is an avid tour skater and photographer. She sent me these lovely photos of a boat she found frozen in the ice in the Saimaa Lake District in Finland.

I’ve posted extra large files so you can marvel at the ice crystals. Click and zoom for a closer look.

  1. It’s intriguing to think of someone stopping on their long distance ice skating trip to snap these pictures. It’s like stopping to smell the roses. Very northern. Nice photographs.
