Digital visit at the Snow Show in Rovaniemi, Finland

While browsing online Finland a little bit, I stumbled onto an international snow & ice exhibit in Rovaniemi; near the Arctic circle. You have to love the internet for such a nice find on a Saturday morning while you are having your cup of coffee. Navigation between the different exhibits is a little bit of a back & forth, but it’s certainly worth it when you see some the amazing creations & photos.

The new gallery is online + December photos uploaded

I switched to another JAlbum skin / theme called Showoff (rather than further modifying the Exhibit theme I was using). Key ideas were lighter code & pages, quick(er) browsing, neutral background, intuitive navigation, a few extra details similar to the exhibit mod I did and good rendering as low as 800×600. You’ll notice the thumbnails are a bit smaller while the images are a little (1/4) bigger. It looks nicer with the bit larger photos. The gallery renders fine in Mac IE 52 – Safari 1 – Firefox 0.8 and Windows IE 6; so one should be set to view it :) We added December photos to the gallery. “mid December” has some general winter images and “Christmas” will take you to Canada, Quebec City & snowmobiling through the woods & countryside.

December photos

The icerabbit in his favorite habitat! Oh yes, we have quite some new photos to publish. I finally installed the application on the PC, copied the recovered customized template set and offline gallery back into place; so now we’re all set again to update things. I made a quick selection from my snaps prior to the winter storm, which you can find under Gallery >> Maine >> Winter Is Here :) Looking forward to bringing some snow to your desktop as early as tonight :)

Reflections

Early this morning, while the fog was still lifting in surrounding areas, I went on a short hike along a nearby small river trail. Of the pictures I snapped along the way, I particularly like the reflection of these trees in the slow moving shallow water that is rippling over some water plants …
