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.

Reaching for the Heavens

Summer has finally arrived in Finland, with the temperature at last hovering closer to 25C every day. A couple of months late, but hey, I am glad it at least came.

With the onset of August the dark time has also returned, as the sun does set again and stays hidden for longer and longer. The upshot being of course that now one can see the stars and maybe even Aurora Borealis.
