Snow in the making

Finally the air is cold enough. The snow cannons are making snow for the local ski slopes. Hope they can open in the folowing days.

Big boat for a small river

This boat has just been brought from Saimaa, the largest lake in Finland. The Seinäjoki -river is a small river so this boat is not going to sail on it. Some local daring entrepreneurs will restore it as a restaurant boat and anchor it somewhere near this place.  They will be busy, cause the plan is to get the restaurant open by midsummer, June 21. I will post more photos as things evolve.

Finnhorse - Suomen hevonen

This is a statue to honor the Finnhorse breed. A horse breed developed fully in Finland. The breed has played an important role as a draught horse and had a lot of responsibilities in the finnish wars. The text in the statue says "Suomenhevonen Suomen Puolesta 1939-1945". "Finnhorse for Finland 1939-1945".

The largest padlock?

These are padlocks on a fence of a bridge. Does the size of the lock represent something?

Taxi headquarters

...not exactly. This is an old rest house for taxi drivers. It's old, but still in use.

This is not a lake

This is the Kyrönjoki -river flooding. What I've been reading this is the biggest flooding for many years. This is really a field and if you look really closely there is a barn standing in the middle of the water.

 This road cannot be taken. At least with a normal car.

The blog has been on a winter break. I changed the main topic to properly describe the nature of it. It doesn't have daily photos, so maybe the name should be plain and simple "Photos from Seinäjoki". Maybe I will find some time to dig up the camera and take some more photos soon.

Seinäjoki Neon Lights

I believe this is the corner of our city where are the most of the Neon Lights. There is even a large screen with advertisements.

Frami F ready

Happy new year! This is the entrance of the new extension of the local technology center, Frami. The newest building is called Frami F. People will study business there. As you can see the surface is extraordinary. I'll take some "whole building" shots later.

Christmas trees yet available

Some people have a tradition of stealing their christmas trees from somebody's forrest. Well that's not legal. Here you can by one. I guess it will cost about 30 to 40 euros to get one. I'm not really sure, cause we are privileged to get our christmas tree legally from a relative's forest.

Santa's train

This train took a group of people to Koskenkorva. Twice today. It is the Santa's train. You can see him stepping out of the train. Actually this is a train maintained by the Haapamäki Museum Locomotive Association. This engine is called "Pikku-Jumbo", "Little Jumbo" and it was built in 1947 by Tampella. Below you can see it leaving he station.

 Cold weather tends to make the birches look all white. It's been -20 degrees celsius few days and about -10 when I took this photo. I quess you could say it's winter now.
