Check out these lovely wintry streets scenes from Helsinki. There's a whole series of B&W and color photos from downtown Helsinki during a snow storm. The full res pictures, perfect for Christmas wallpaper on your computer (grin), they say they're 1024x768, but they're actually 1280x768.
Now these people know how to do a winter. How can you not like snow storms with trams?
PS - We have their 2008 Calendar and you can order their 2009 Calendar here. It's not cheap at €20,00 but this is a really great photographer and a very photogenic land.
