Picture of The Day

February in Finnish is 'Helmikuu', which translates as 'Pearl Month'. I think the name comes from ice crystals reflecting sunlight, shining like pearls. It was hard to capture these ice pearls in a still photo, as they are more impressive when you move - all the crystals are in different positions, and as you move around, they appear as twinkling and blinking on and off, depending on which crystals happen to be aligned so that they reflect the maximum light.
