I took these pictures on Friday afternoon. I was driving along the sea-side and had to stop the car and walk to the beach because of the mysterious glow I could only guess from the road. I hadn't seen the snow which fell during the night and melt before I went to the sea... but beneath a blanket of dark sky the water occured to have the most intriguing swimming-pool blue tone. I stayed there for a long while till my finger were burned by chill wind. Then, I went back to the ordinary traffic jam with a splendid red nose and a very happy mood all the same.
