Cool Breeze, I was just wondering if the ice breakers actually carry cargo or passengers themselves or they just break the ice for ships that follow.

DollLast one is great!

Only the last one???

I got a new camera recently, so these are my first photos taken with it!! (Taken today!)

Orange dragon-fly... Approaching to it had to be careful.


Always busy gathering pollen. :-)


Each birdie took its own direction to watch. :-D


Orange moth... I seem lucky in taking orange objects today, hehe.


Well, maybe a little bit inappropriate for the EF but...

No cargo, no passengers. All the cargo ships come from abroad, many of them from warm countries, and they need assistance even when the ice is thin since they weren't built sturdy enough for icy seas. It is quicker and more economical to transport goods by land in Finland once the goods have arrived here. The Finnish-built boats for cruises between Finland and Sweden don't need ice-breakers to assist them at all. There is so much traffic between the two countries that the routes the ships use simply have no time to freeze properly. A couple of inches of ice is a breeze for the boats.

Last winter was so warm here that some bushes were budding in mid-January in Helsinki and there was precious little snow, which didn't come until late March! I had never seen buds in January! The northern ports needed the ice-breakers but even there the winter was a lot milder than usual.

Beware the creatures of the night.
"Beware the creatures of the night." - It would be easier if we knew what they look like. I mean, I know that there are little green men on Mars but I have no idea what colour those guys are on the moon! Maybe the Americans can help. After all, they have been up there.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I meant the creatures that only come out when it's a full moon.
Hey there guys,
first time I check out this thread (sorry, hehe).
Wonderful pics! You are all great photographers! [Y]
Seeing certain pics, I thought... Ever thought of taking some pics to make some good wallpapers for desktops? You would need large pics, say, 1600x1200, nice and with bright colors. Lana's pics have bright colors and are pretty simple and neat, and would make good wallpapers for example! Emotion: wink

Vampires?

Hey Kooyeen. You can take any picture you like as wallpaper. Just let me know and I'll send you the full size if you wish. Emotion: wink
