Sunset

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.

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.

Summer holidays are time to relax, we have spent time at our summer-house past week. The weather is very warm here at the moment, cannot complain really, but it is warm 🙂 This a clover field near our house, I’ve never seen  field so full of clovers. It is rather beautiful sightOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

June – summer is here

June is here already and  I have been up to the same old stuff, taking photos of wild flowers and nature at my Summer flowers (99 of 118)summer-house. Hopefully I will expand my horizon this month so I won’t continue with macro theme. Even though I will be posting macro’s, maybe a landscape or two between. Maybe be as bold as do a throw back Thursday…

Small town of Billnäs

I have visited several the picturesque villages this summer, this is one of them. There is magic in these in the old houses and buildings. The scenary is beautiful with the old trees and plants grrowing. Often they are located near to a river or a lake. These places are busy during summer season, only to fall asleep for winter, and wake up to a new season in the spring.
