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

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…

Träskända Manor Park

We enjoyed a beautiful autumn Sunday visiting this lovely park, the history these trees could tell. There were people sitting by the trees or benches having a picnic, enjoying the low soft autumn light and warmth. Kids running around playing – so idylic. I had my camera with me, but I forgot the card home…

Sunset

Beautiful sunset at near my summer house in Lahti, the green fields and orange sky make a beautiful contrast. Mist always adds an extra plus to the scenary Ihana auringonlasku lähellä mökkiäni, vihreän ja oranssin kontrasti on aivan ihana. Sumu aina tehostaa kuvan tunnelmaa. Kyllä kesällä on niin kaunista.

Summer evening

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.
