Brush strokes from heaven

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.

Feels like Summer to me

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.

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.

Outcrop

The Finnish summer has been one of rain and coldness. All in all, so far only 4 days which coul be categorized as warm days. Most of the time the temperature has been hovering under the +20 C mark and rain has been almost an everyday visitor. A huge contrast to the weather in most of Europe this summer.

This photo was taken in  the rain, that was so strong you could not see the otherside of the lake. In the photo it shows, but only barely.

A moment in time

The free-time I have currently has been diminishing all the time, and moments like this are rare and few between. That makes it even more welcome. The calm water, almost midnight and not a soul around. Just nature, wide open space and a lake. And me.

The blog has been as silent as I have been busy. I am sorry for that, and I do mean to keep on writing and posting photos, but at the moment it is a bit difficult to say the least.
