a chilly sunrise



A Finnish sunrise during winter stays low on the horizon throughout the day. A recent frigid air mass in late December pushed temperatures to their lowest so far this winter; -20c in Uusimaa. Other regions further north had much lower temperatures; -35c during this cold snap. More on weather here.

Happy New Year everyone! Best wishes for a healthy and happy 2015 ❤
