Brush strokes from heaven

The brush strokes from heavens by Jere Ketola on 500px.com

Summer has gone, autumn seems to change into winter terrificly fast. Life seems to travel at an ever faster pace. I guess I am living the time of life when there is just too much to do and so little time.

Work seems to be more and more hectic as well. Life going forward, but sometimes one would just like to stop and enjoy it too.

 

Last row

Winter has first arrived and now it seems gone again. Nature is poised between winter proper and autumn.

Last week we had the first snow here in Helsinki and now as I write it, it has melted away as the weather took a sudden turn for the warmer.

I have been totally immersed in my work life, as I have, once again taken a leap to another work place. Seems the time between workday and the next is way too short currently, but I have a lot of faith that the situation will get better as I get more and more into the job and learn the new people and the new things I have to be responsible for. Still a huge change. Photography has been taking a second fiddle and the writing of the blog has been totally out of my mind for the time being.

I am thinking of how to breathe more fresh air into this, probably something like a photo a day again would be good.

Last row before the winter. by Jere Ketola on 500px.com

Took this photo with my trusty Nikon as a old lady was out for the last row of the season before winter arrived with snow, ice and coldness. A beautiful moment for sure!

How are all you doing?

 

 

Grasping for straws

Ultra busy start to the year so far. Already summer is looming and I have not yet been able to edit or go through all my photos that I have taken this year or the last year for that matter. Time is really not a thing I have too much of at the moment. Happily summer will be more free of timetables.

 

 

Its starting to look like Christmas?

Late November and early December has been rather damp and wet, but there have been bright moments when the sun has shown up. And when it does, oh boy!

Here a small valley in fog with the sun from the south-west shining its beautiful light.

Sorry to have been awfully quiet lately. Too much to do at work, and lousy Finnish autumn weather has been making it a bit difficult to enjoy the outdoors lately. Wish I was back in south Europe once more. Or maybe the snow will come and make everything beautiful here in Helsinki as well.

These views could not differiate much more from what we have here. Dry, hard light, warmth. A totally different atmosphere to the weather here currently.

I have been gravitating more and more towards monochrome in the photos I take, be it due to the bleakness of the nature or some other reason, I do not know.
