the joys of summer

we have had beautiful summer days, and that is something I have tries to capture these photos. The water was so cold as the rapid flows into the lake at Vuolenkoski, Finland.How the kids were able to be in it is beyond me… 🙂 This first set of photos are from there, the other one below are from Ruuhijärvi were the water was a whole lot warmer 🙂 as you can see from the expressions and body language.

Seasons Greetings

I wish every one of you who have shared this blogging year with me a very peaceful and joyful  Christmas time. I get so much from this, I learn by visiting your posts and by your comments. Thank you so much!

seasons greetings

Mine would be people( family and friends)
