Leaves are falling, winter is coming.. Fall in Helsinki. Beautiful.
Been out of country for a while, photographing these beauties. Not many things to me are so beautiful as birds of prey, whether they be owls, hawks or eagles. Graceful swift flyers with majesty.
End of summer and a Moose.
The Finnish Moose (also called elk) is a huge animal when met close-up. In this instance the scene was quite serene with the moose eating and me photographing.
August draws closer to its end and with it summer closes in on autumn. Dark skies seem to inspire to photograph at night.
This photo taken at the old star observatory located in the heart of Helsinki, so in the middle of a zone of light.
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.
Finland, the land of lakes, forests. And mosquitoes!
How many white-tailed deer do you see?
A blue tit from yesterdays walk. These guys are really quick.
