After many sunny but ugly days, the landscape was whitewashed with fresh layer of snow.
Finnish winter is peculiar. Snow get packed tight on the roads, and only way to keep sidewalks not too slippery is spread gravel on them. Salt is not an option because it would damage the parks and also floors inside the houses when wet snow carried inside with shoes. And when weather sew saw around zero, the gravel get stuck under layer of icy snow. So, more gravel needs to be spread. Finally, when snow starts to melt in March, sidewalks are covered with dirty gravel. And in April city starts the operation "sand storm", to get all the gravel removed.
What comes to photography, I found some useful scripts for GIMP editing software. There are "plugins" and "scripts", and scripts are easier to install. My favorites are made by Elsamuko, who's all scripts can be installed at once here. There's one called as "National Geographic Script", and it pretty much does all necessary editing to improve digital images. But there are also other very useful scripts at registry.gimp.org. One of them makes it rather easy to adjust the white balance using color picker tool. Works sometimes much better than manual color balance or automatic white balance.
