Aura in March 2011

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 18 January 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Aura becomes harsh cold winters walking and skiing trails. There is no finer place to enjoy the sun, as is the River Aura will be a sunny spring day. And outdoor hot rum at the end to ensure that at least a cold, is quite appropriate.

Hello everybody. It is fine that You will see my pictures. I do not know English very well. Therefore, it may be some comments or answers seem strange. I'm trying to learn more. Thank you for your understanding.

OMG, I wouldn't go there. I can't believe you people have somehow made me go to that ice when I was a kid. And I do remember skating at the Pekanpaana on the River Aura all those years back... I must have been totally grazy to do such thing!
Think all the ice cold water under the beautiful ice - scary.

Very nice shot!

@ursulakatariina: The river ice is always a distance when the frost has been a long time. When you were a child, was Pekanpaana officially measured and managed in such a way that it was as safe as it may be. And there's been, just as the middle of winter, when the ice was really strong. Caution is still always a good thing. This year has not yet been mentioned in the news of the men drowned ice. Generally, the first drop in the ice as soon as you have had a couple of days in freezing temperatures because they do not remember that it does not yet carry the first crust even a squirrel. Funny, that picture awakened memories.

Nice shot, we only hear stories now of rivers freezing in Britain, it must be quite something to experience.

@Doug: Yes, Aura, at least a thin layer freezes almost every winter. You do not always able to go to walk on the ice.

@tataray: That is the best in the winter around here. In that walking will face the sun and a nice tan.

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Something I've never seen with my own eyes - I really like the wider angle you've presented us with here along with the inclusion of the human element. Well done!

@Jason Politte: Finland says: too late to learn. It is a nice thing that I was able to make something interesting. Aminus3 is a great way to tell things to people.

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

That explains the sudden winter! I really must read the description more often.
Looks like great fun.

18 Jan 2012 5:45pm

@The Mouse: Yes, it is fun when you have a bright winter's day, and is a place where you can enjoy the sun. River Aura is a traditional outdoor Turku residents a place when the ice is strong enough.

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

That is amazing, particularly as you say March! Wow!, it must be so consistently cold for many months in your country!

18 Jan 2012 6:36pm

@CElliottUK: Last winter, the last snow melted near the middle of April. The snow was quite a lot and the weather was cool. When the melt began, it was very fast. I look forward to the coming spring.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A beautiful description. But that cold ... everything is frozen ... As I want to see the sun!
and let me warm up for him ... Nice work! Best regards, Adela

18 Jan 2012 6:40pm

@Adela Fonts: Sun winter day in March does not feel the cold, unless the wind have a place. Then comes the sun and the mental pick-up. Birds often start around this time anyway, and the spring song feels like spring. Happy day to you too Adela.

Baldwin VW from Bejuma, Venezuela

What an amazing scene. I´ve never seen a frozen river in my life, maybe that´s why I prefer to walk on solid ground :))) Beautiful image

19 Jan 2012 12:20am

@Baldwin VW: n most cases, rivers and other bodies of water freeze over in winter. Sometimes winter is so warm that the ice thick enough to come, that they could move. Then it is necessary to stay away from the ice and walk along the ground.

Monique from Koh Samui, Thailand

Fantastic view with that frozen river and the people walking on it as if it's normal :) Great composition!

19 Jan 2012 4:54am

@Monique: Yes, it is quite normal When the ice is thick enough. Then go to Turku on the ice to face the sun. Sometimes the river on the ice That has been skating tracks, and they've Been close to the kiosks, Which are Able to buy a warm drink. This winter is mild and applaud Thurs Suggest That the ice, at least not matter very soon.

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Beautiful clarity to your vista along the frozen river - and the line of figures provides a lovely sense of scale. Here in Australia, we can't even imagine rivers freezing over!

19 Jan 2012 6:58am

@Stephen: This is a Great Way to look at the world and Present Their own life for others. Also it is a nice Way to change opinions about this sight of things. My Worldview expands. When the Aura river ice is thick enough That it bears the man, is it really a popular place for Outdoor Activities.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

As you say above "caution is still always a good thing" - you bet and there is no way I'd walk out there ! Fantastic scene.

19 Jan 2012 9:25am

@Ronnie 2¢: You are right. If you're going to go on the ice, it is good to know that it is thick enough. When the frost has lasted a long time, and the water is flowing very strongly, you can pretty well count on their durability.

Kristiina from Tampere, Finland

I'd walk there for sure!! Nice shot!
