I captured these droplets after a rain, even if I say so myself, I like it 🙂
Last weekend ended our long summer heat chapter of temperatures around +30 C, it is not that common to have that warm weather here. I am getting old, as I who loves the warm weather, thought that it wont’t hurt if it comes down a bit. It didn’t need to turn to +15 C and rain, but it did, that Finnish summer for you.
Well on the last warm “tropical evening” I drove to several lakeside spots to capture the lovely sunset. The mosquitoes did bother me a bit, but it was a lovely evening.
This time of the year one is for sure not without things to photograph, I’ve taken these from our summer house, where the nature is near and present at all times. I know I post similar photos every year, but I am also delighted by them yearly.
I drove to the lake to take photos of a swan family, but they were not there, so I’ve added a photo my son took the night before. We are enjoying beautiful weather in Finland at the moment, but we must take all the joy from now, as you never know when it ends.
Time to enjoy and relax
No words needed.
Top lake at Talbingo, is a lovely escape in the NSW Snowy Mountains. it is located between Blowering Dam to the north and Talbingo Dam to the south – two popular waterways for fishing and water sports. We went water skiing here, it was so beautiful.
Here are some photos from our day walk on a Beautiful summer Sunday in Seurasaari Island, Helsinki. Hope you have the time to go through all the pictures of this lovely place.
The island provides a lovely setting for outdoor recreation, sun worshippers and walkers. The tame ducks, swans and geese swarming around the white wooden bridge welcome everybody. Notice the baby swans next to the rock
Having crossed a visitors can see buildings from all over Finland that have been relocated to Seurasaari island. The buildings represent various aspects of living in Finland from the 17th century to the 20th century. There are currently 87 buildings in the museum.
The nature is strongly present in the Seurasaari Island, wild flowers, trees , small wood areas. The paths make it easy to walk around without disturbing the nature.
Summer day in Helsinki, sitting in the park people watching and enjoying tasty ice cream, having lunch at a restaurant. What a beautiful capital we have.
It would mean two things, I hope you will not forget me or a pretty flowers. Obviously, I am not asking you not to forget me.Obviously, I would be very sad if you do 🙂 It is the time of the year when these small delicate flowers bloom in my yard, and every year I take photos of them. You know, Same, same but different. So one again a offer you a collage full of images, that me predictable in that sense 🙂
I love taking black and white photos of dandelion seeds, I think they look so much better this way than in color. This years take on the familiar spring , early summer topic.
Countryside is a great place to be at this time of Corona time. Witnessing the merge of green is good for the spirits
It is rare to see cows outside nowadays, so I get exited every time I do see them in the field. You can see them more than some years back, but still. So, I ask my hubby to stop the car so I can take photos, he kindly obliges so my whims. Now I would like to share my excitement (photos) of seeing HAPPY COWS under the blue sky on green field.
I am self-isolating at my summer house and once again documenting the spring miracles that brighten our minds and spirits every year. The light is so strong up-lifter of the mood. We have lots of light now and I am so happy about it, as I am about the new green, beginnings of summer.
I Witnessed the rugged splendour of the famous 12 Apostles, magnificent rock stacks that rise up majestically from the Southern Ocean on Victoria’s dramatic coastline. And you can tell I was impressed by the amount of photos I took there.
Created by constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland beginning 10–20 million years ago, the stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs.
The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore. View the 12 Apostles at sunrise and sunset as they change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun. ( text from visit Melbourne)
Still in Australia, the beautiful coast of Victoria certainly stole my heart.
This photo was taken along the Great Ocean road in Victoria, Australia at one of the beautiful oceans and cliff views, I have so totally forgot what was what place, but all of them were breathtakingly beautiful. Lets appreciate the beauty and forget my lack of memory 😉
I was once again sitting in my office editing photos, when I noticed a bunny eating dinner at out front yard. I looked so cute surrounded by dandelions. These are not the best pictures as I took them through my window ( which had by the way been cleaned the previous day) it stayed and entertained me for some time. Here is Bunny
