The walk we took last week (the one that has provided all the recent pictures for this series!) was right by the island that the zoo is on. This picture shows that island. And you can see one of the giant bears that live there!
During the winter here in Finland the ice often gets thick enough that people walk across it. In seven years of living here I’ve still not done it myself. Perhaps it’s because, growing up in England, it was very rare for icy lakes or rivers to be safe to walk on, and the idea of…

This picture doesn’t quite look how I’d hoped it would… I think it is a bit difficult to make out what you’re seeing. That big chunk of ice in the foreground was previously attached to the cliff-face, underneath the higher up chunk of ice.
This wouldn’t have happened if you’d just listened to me.
I don’t say “be careful” just to hear the sound of my own voice!
I enjoy taking macro photos. I like to zoom right in on the fine details, the things that many people would overlook. Like the texture of these little icy flakes on this roundabout seat at the park.
