A different Christmas

This year I had a different Christmas day: I got stuck on the beach for a couple of hours, with a camera in my hands and nothing better to do than taking some pictures. The temperature was around -20°C and luckily it was a sunny day. On December 25th the length of the day is 3 hours 37 mins here in the Oulu, Finland. For this reason, even at midday the sun stays low on the horizon, giving a nice tone to the snow and to the frozen sea.
