Linlo bridge view

I had the wrong shoes on so I did not go for a walk on this little Linlo island, I just took photos from the walk bridge and few meters into the island. I think I like the best in these photos is the contrast of colors, the reeds and the darkening sky. I thought…

How to survive November 2020-6

Kivenlahti seaside was grey, as I was taking a walk there searching for gray, which is a topic of a month in a Photography FB group I am in. I saw this boat being left in to the reeds. I thought that might make a great B&W shot. So here it is. If you wish…

Rainbow colors~2

As the rainbow was behind my back and I was facing the lake with the sun shining on my face in as a slight drizzle came down I took these photos of the rain. I was able to capture the “rainbow balls” I do not know the name for this effect, but I am very…

Rainbow colors

I had to get out of the house, it felt like the walls are falling on top of me. Covid has so messed up our lives, so many restrictions to what, where and when you can do it. So I have mainly stayed at home as the weather has not been the greatest the past…

October at Humaljärvi

I have so many shots from this lake at nearly all hours. I am rather happy how I captured the October colors and hues. The clear light that belongs to October was making the landscape radiant. ~Florence Bone O suns and skies and clouds of June, And flowers of June together, Ye cannot rival for…

End of summer season

It is that time of the year again that we closed the summer house for season 2020. We packed all the linens away and emptied the refrigerator and cupboards from food. Racked the leaves, well actually we run the lawnmower over them and this way the all the nutrients will remain in the ground. So…

The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking…

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.  Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt. ~William Allingham

Glimmering sea

Anyone who has followed my for a longer period of time ( I have been on WordPress for NINE years) knows I love the sea, sailboats and clouds. I captured these when visiting Kopparnäs, Inkoo last Sunday. I got so much pleasure watching the beautiful glimmering sea and the sailboats in the distance. If you…

Kopparnäs

It was Sunday again and it was sunny again, we went out of the house again. Lots of repeats! Last time we went to this place, it was on the Storvik side in the spring. Now in autumn we are on the more rocky side, in my opinion, at Kopparnäs. Lovely place, not crowded this…
