Chasing mist

A dreary bleak morning one would think. A beautiful mist, another would think.. I fall straight into that second category. I went out to chase the mist and try and capture some of the beauty of the nature.

I find that nature is so, so beautiful in the fall as the colors have so many hues. Then there is the fact that fogs occur more often than in the summer and together these two elements provide a nice “canvas” to work with.

The village

The old medieval church and the small village beside it were nicely covered in the fog. The power of the sun though is still strong enough to melt the mist quickly so I was fighting against time, trying to get to a good vantage point to photograph it best.

Pretty dont you think? The field had given a good harvest and now only awaits the spring.

Coming back after the mist had gone I was captivated by these berries. A very good sign there will be nice opportunities to photograph birds in the coming weeks as there is a lot of food for them.

Cool place, cool music video by Haloo Helsinki!

Just wanted to share a cool music video by a Finnish band that I like. The video was shot at a spectacular place in Bulgaria, which is the old communist party HQ or something. Love the architecture in this case, albeit I usually dislike/hate the communist architecture which was very err. plain. Not to mention hating the idealogy and the fact that the communist era destroyed a couple of generations lifes in many countries in Europe.

Anyway, enjoy the music video, I think the understanding of the words is not needed to enjoy it. :) For now the place is a great thing to consider visiting if one goes to Bulgaria. UFO etc. More on this place can also be read at an excellent travel blog by Yomadic here. His travel blog is excellent so you will do well to visit and check out his other posts as well.

Crab season

In Finland as well as Sweden it is customary to have big parties and enjoy eating crab amongst friends and family. Of course it is also a good excuse to drink wine or even snaps of vodka..

It is also a smells a bit of the old class-system as it is very much a thing of the more wealthy people (more and more also the normal middle-pay people as well).

Still, it is very much a Finnish thing to do in the autumn when the season  for crab is here.

The eating is very much a messy affair with very little meat to be eaten from one crab. The main Part to eat is in the rear and then a bit in the scissors.  There is also a delicious fluid in the crab which is customary to be sucked out.

The crab are usually served alongside toast and are eaten as an apperative as it is not very filling.

Excellent meat to eat as main course after enjoying the time spent playing with the crab..

And a nice dessert. Perfection.

This nice three-course dinner was eaten at restaurant Sunn beside the Senate square in the center of Helsinki.
