Spring rushes on with amazing speed. Soon there will be leaves in the trees and everything will turn green. At the moment though, the colors seem to be more golden and yellow as there has been a dry spell for a while in Southern Finland. We have also been enjoying wonderfully warm weather since the beginning of Easter.
Golden hour is a great time to photograph the nature. A hike along one of the citys many small forests was by intention for fitness, but I took a camera along for the ride. Birds were not very co-operative and did not come close enough for a proper shot so I chose those subjects that were available..
Between the photos taken there was a small forest. And a herd of wild white-tailed deer. Unfortunately there was a lot of brush and they were very fast, so no photos of those beauties this time.
Sometimes it is just wonderful to photograph the more abstract things in life. For example this photo from the weekend. Quite abstract, more along the thinking of lines and triangles. There are so many lines and repeating patterns.. Sometimes I feel like our lives are like that as well?
Hopefully I will be posting more along the lines of food soon as well. And more than that I hope to be able to write a bit more as well, seems I have more or less been posting photos, but not so much the thoughts that have gone into them. This, mostly due to life being rather hectic at the moment. So much to do at work and also not enough free time.
I got my first small Victorinox tool when I was a small kid. It has served me well over the years and it still does its job. However I saw a bargain so I bought a new bit bigger version. Hopefully this will serve me as well for the next couple decades..
The old ones has seen jungles, winters harsh, Nordic summers, Balkan winters and as small as it is, it just is one of those things that are so useful that it always accompanies me on trips.
Love can sometimes be tough. These swans were having a bit of a tumble. All is fair in love and war?
Btw as should be obvious by now, I love nature. I hope that the spring will bring many, many more great opportunities to capture beautiful moments like these.
