That's how the new year began. It was beautiful, with an optical effect in the sky (a pillar, pretty common in winter).
In front of my house. There was a lot of snow in that winter! This one here has been shovelled into a pile.
In that day and perhaps a day before and after as I remember, a strange light fog filled the city which caused extraordinary nice frost on trees few days later. I was very surprised of such a fog because I've never seen it in winter before. I would understand it if the temperature were above zero but it was about -10 or so.
Yea, that's what I saw, no effects.
Closer trees are clear, farther objects are blurred.
12 times zoomed in view along Sõpruse avenue from the cross of five streets in Endla street.
This is amazing!
And this one, as on the previous picture, is actually a halo that was there just right in front of my eyes! A pillar this time. It was glittering because ice crystals just moved around in the air, without any wind.
A video that I did in that particular day from the bus because it was exceptionally beautiful:

As you can see, snow didn't melt away and continued to come down from the sky... Compare with the pictures above from 09.01.10. It had to be piled up like this, otherwise parking in front of the house would be impossible.
A month later, the snow starts melting... And spring arrives!!!!!!!!!! It is just amazing.
