Christmas Day Sky Galore

We had a relaxing Christmas and on Christmas Day, I woke up at around 10 am and then went out for a walk as the sun was rising and I noticed that the sky was absolutely gorgeous. I knew I only had limited time to enjoy the sky (perhaps around half an hour), so I went out to take some photos and videos. 

Photos can't do justice as the beautiful hues are everywhere around me, so took some videos with my new mobile phone to test out how good the result could be. The fingers of my right hand were totally frozen and painfully numb as I had to take off my right hand glove to take the videos. The temperature was -25'C. It took at least five more minutes before I could feel my hand again, but it was worth the pain he he he he he he...As the different hues were across the whole sky, as I was walking to the bridge of Kitinen River, I even walked backwards at some point during my walk just to admire the different colours at different parts of the sky. Awesome!

But first, here are some photos...Click to see bigger views. Enjoy!

And here are the two videos...


  1. Stunning. And so cold! Can't believe the temperature there. Thank you for sharing. Can't stop looking at them.

    1. Glad you enjoyed them, Nikki. The coldest I've experienced was around -37'C. When it gets down to -25'C or colder, usually I just walk to work as it gets harder to bike and breathe. Thankfully my workplace isn't that far away he he...

  2. Gorgeous sky photos, Amel. But it looks too cold for me ^_^ Happy New Year.....

  3. I'm glad you had a nice Christmas. Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures.
