Sometimes grey weather is the most depressing thing you know, but the shades of grey can be quite beautiful too.
I took these photos by lake Saimaa on Christmas Eve. It was snowing like hell (or maybe not, I've understood the temperature in hell is a bit too high for snow), but since it was the first real snow storm of the year, it actually felt really good.
I'm not surprised that in the early days pagans worshipped the nature instead of person-like god.
I'm pretty sure the sky is higher here than in city.
