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 😉
Not much editing was needed here, it was a really warm sunset in yellows and oranges. Sea, Sailboat, sunset, that is a picture made of. Warm regards to all 🙂
One more mountain photo for now, still in British Columbia and Whistler route, we stopped by the side of the road to capture this sight.
Mountains covered with snow in June was a beautiful sight in Vancouver, the beauty of the nature has left me a lasting impression.
I have edited a bunch of old photos some are new finds that I did not remember taking and some I am re-posting after new edits, over the years I have learned view things and I now have lightroom that i use to edit. I am able to bring out new details to some photos. This is taken n a boat as we were sailing towards Vancouver
Back to the archives, this is an old sunset photo I discovered when searching for shots that I’ve disregarded, now after editing , not so shabby.
Porkkalanniemi is in Kirkkonummi the area I live in, we visit it quite often and the natural beauty of the place never lets me down. The area consists of rocky shores, pine forest, and beautiful outlooks onto the sea. The Porkkala cape stretches far out to the sea. These are from our yesterdays visit.
The Lone Cypress tree, believed to be more than 250 years old, draws many visitors to the scenic 17-Mile Drive on the Monterey Peninsula to take photographs of it, me included. Yes this is from our California trip last fall. I got distracted for a while. Here are two shots
Social distancing is the word. this man with his son looked serious with their distancing – a very full boat with supplies they seemed to be heading to to an island near by – I think.
This forest, hill behind our home is an easy place to escape to nature. We can see it from our house and watch the season change. At the moment I am waiting for the green to push through and brighten this place. I do like that there is so much evergreens here. Moss, pine trees, spruce. it is forest therapy just steps away. Happy Easter everyone, stay safe and take care.
What do you think of these images. I have not really done lots of landscapes in black and white. Cities, portraits, still life, in those I have thought it works beautifully. Now I have tried, I am rather happy how they turned out. I would not be sharing them if I wasn’t 🙂 .
this week the the topic is at CB&W Challenge, Words that end in “ock” I am taking the easy way out with this one. Dock. It is a place I love to sit at… this is one day at at dock enjoying coffee.
I have been posting lots of shots from different beaches, here is one more post about, well beaches. The one here is from Suinonsalmi here in Finland, not so inviting at this time of year that’s for sure. Cold and windy, no snow or ice.
I know you must be tired of seeing my photos of beaches and cliffs, I don’t care. We stopped here also for a moment (Pomponio State Beach) . I have admit that these too are photos that do justice to the atmosphere on the beach that day, I rather like these. I also did a set of these photos that I edited rather strongly, I do like them also and I will post them in a separate post.
This beach is located 12 miles south of Half Moon Bay along the San Mateo coastline, this area provides access to miles of gently sloping, sandy beaches at the base of high sandstone bluffs.
somewhere on the coast of Big Sur we saw these men fishing among one of the many beautiful spots on this drive. I have to admit the light during this moment is great These are one of my favorites photos on a way, due to the lightning.
McWay Falls( 80-foot-tall (24 m) waterfall) is “that” waterfall in Big Sur that everyone has seen and many have photographed. That now includes me. The Cliff areas beyond the fenced boundaries, including the beach, saddle rock and the falls area are completely off limits. So the end of the trail was where you could take the photos. Our time of visit was not the best as the light was rather harsh, but we did not have the opportunity and time to pick the time of the visit.
It is so weird, it is supposed to be heart of winter and our nature is at least two months ahead. We have all the signs of spring here. I took a walk outside, no rain but a beautiful sunny day to capture oddness of this winter.
I have still many miles/ kilometers driving and pictures from our drive on the California coast. I have given you an opportunity to have a break from these beautiful views. Well, here we go again, I need complete my dairy of the trip.
If I am not totally wrong these are from Point Lobos State Natural Reserve
I love watching the ocean, the waves, changing colors of blue and green. The warm sand underneath my toes. Sun.

Perched on the central California coast, 50 miles south of San Francisco, the 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse is one of the tallest lighthouses in the country and has been guiding mariners since 1872. The five-wick lard oil lamp and first order Fresnel lens, comprised of 1,008 prisms, was first lit at sunset, Nov. 15, 1872.
Pigeon Point’s original name, Whale Point, was inspired by the gray whales that migrate past the point. California’s boom from Gold Rush to statehood brought many ships to these perilous waters.
Those who have followed me for some time know I love lighthouses, so you are not surprised about the amount of photos from this place.
How Tall is the Lighthouse?
100′ above ground to the focal plane of the lens.
115′ above ground to the top of the tower.
150′ (about) above sea level to the focal plane of the lens.

Stunning view in the Big Sur Area, the pacific looks very blue from there. Take a deep breath, this is a spot you want to take a while to enjoy
