ice flowers
One Man's Paradise


As a newbie to Northern climates I am still fascinated with the low temperatures. I am sure that will subside, soon. Especially since we have now ice flowers not only in the unheated buildings, but also in my bathroom. It must be cold outside. A cold that is slowly creeping inside.

first light on ice flowers

first daylight…

Nonetheless, there is beauty to these creatures.

a hint of colors

In Tok they had -46°F tonight. The cold spell comes with exceptionally clear nights, a full moon, and luckily little wind. I am surprised how well these rubber bunny boots work. Thank God also for Polartec®.


a few more moments and the sun will rise – daylight, yes!

Looking forward to another stellar day in paradise.
