A perfectly calm moment in Finland a few days before summer solstice.
Finnish summer has been so beautiful this year that it is hard to put to words, but maybe a simple image can convey some of that beauty?
As a curiosity this photo was taken with a Soviet lens called Helios 44-2, which is usually famous for swirly soft focus areas, but which I utilized as a landscape lens as it happened to be in the camera backpack 🙂
A gull, the cathedral, fading light. Tried to capture movement, took a few shots and love this one. looks great in print at A3 size as well.
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.
Spring has come once more to this far northern land. Everywhere green seems to be sprouting out and the nature is so alive now. We have also been enjoying a rather warm may in general, with temperatures climbing over +20C.
Forests are full of flowers and the sun rises earlier and earlier and sets later and later. Soon it will be light all around the clock.
Forests have mysteries hidden in them, more often than not. Here an abandoned house in the midst of woods.
All photos taken with the lovely Canon G5X.
