Ferry to Mariehamn a cold winter day

Ice cold crispy archipelago
-15 in the Stockholm archipelago offers magical natural and light phenomena.

A freezing cold winter day in January 2013 I took a day trip with a ferry (Stockholm-Mariehamn-Stockholm). I have never experienced anything like this. It was so cold outside so it steamed from the ice and the ferry drove out and into large fog banks.

One minute it was quite clear with sun and cloudless sky, the next so foggy that i did not see land. The cold, fog, sun and reflections of the ice created breathtaking views and exciting picture phenomenon. A magical experience!

This picture was taken just as we are heading into a fog bank. If you look at the background you see how the cloud and steam from the ice almost meet.
