Happy new year! Lets make 2015 a great year for everyone!
I dream of great trips for the coming year. My list includes Lapland, Iceland, Cuba. Maybe Cappadokia in Turkey as well. We shall see. Hopefully I will be a better person and a better photographer.
Slow or should I say fast start to the new year. 2014 has started as damp and cold as 2013 ended. Pretty much constant drizzle of water is the name of the game. Work has also been very time and energy consuming. I even have not had much possibility to go out and photograph anything special. Due to the semi-darkness of the daylight time it seems that I have to properly start doing more tripod shooting and long/very long exposures are the name of the game. Or maybe I should somehow get my hands on a Nikon D4/Df or a 1Dx/5mk3 from Canon so that I could shoot in the dark!
This one taken with my antique D70 and a wide-angle (10mm).
I hope this year will be even better than last year. And last year was really., really special for me, with lovely traveling, a great winter and a great summer of photographing. Goals/hopes for the year: Hopefully get a new camera, travel to new places, improve as a person and a photographer.
The Sun is setting on 2013, and soon it will be a new year. Hopefully we will get a proper snow winter here as well for now all is so very bleak and dark. As you can see from the photo, there is no snow or ice in Helsinki at the moment. Last year, one could have walked to the island in the distance on ice.
Now we have green grass, open sea, and constant rain.. As in the not frozen kind rain. I enjoy the fact that it is not cold, but I hate the bleak dark periods. I would much rather get the light mirrored from snow. Much more photogenic as well, which to me is always important.
So another year has passed. A year of laughter, love, hurt and traveling with a lot of work thrown in the mix as well. Great experiences. I believe I have personally grown as a human and I think that is greatly due to the people in my life.
And now a new year to do so much more and hopefully see even more.
Lets look forward and be positive! Be dynamic and live life to the fullest, for life is a precious thing.
