Although we have a  lot of snow now, its nice to return to look at one of my very favorite shots of 2018. Photo taken in Kuopio, with the full moon rising over Lake Kallavesi.

What do you think of it?

Spring light. Comes from an angle more often than not.

Small and almost pocketable. The 1 inch sensor cameras are really good nowadays. And every generation is better and better.

Waiting for the rain to stop

After a whole day of rain, it is refreshing to walk in the nearest forest and just enjoy the nature slowly waking up after a long winter season. Finally it is spring.

Winter minimalism

This winter has been, perhaps busier than ever. I have had a few rare opportunities to photograph, with my day work taking so much time and most importantly, energy. Photography has been in part a therapy away from that. But that therapy requires only taking photos, it does not require or indeed always necessitate the sharing of said photos. The little activeness on that part has been on the easy to use platform that is instagram, not on wordpress.

And to counterpart it, the male Bearded Reedling a true Angry bird if there ever was one.

These little birds are very fun to photograph and observe and it was a great pleasure to be able to do it this winter as it requires a bit off a special weather.
