Waiting for a real winter.

This year winter in Gdansk, Poland is light and heat. I do not like this aura. Everywhere mud and gray. People sneeze sneak in a hurry. Almost no one is walking. It is hard for a good subject to photograph the urban landscape.

I am looking out the winter such as in 2010.

People walked along the river Motlawa.

Frost squeezed so hard that you could walk on the frozen canal. Directly in front of famous Gdansk Crane.

Such a winter like this in 2010 I love. Despite the cold, the topics on the photographs themselves are pushing against the photographer's eyes.

only a few people like that woman below, watched for the coming spring.

Only birds do not enjoy this winter, you need to help them survive, Swans fatten them, because for decades do not fly away for the winter from Polish to warm countries.

I agree! Enough of this rain and ice! Here in skiing country in New Hampshire, USA we have bare ground showing through a thin cover of ice and snow. Last year we were buried.

Latvia is a beautiful country, I was in Riga in 2008.

Weather has changed too much, In Mexico we are suffering the worst drought in the last 72 years. I had the opportunitty to travel to Los Angeles and Big Bear for New Years Eve, and it was terrible, Los Angeles was hot and in Big Bear they usually have 50 cms of snow, this year they only had 3 to 5 cms.
