Country roads

I like driving these old winding roads at the countryside.

52 Frames: Week 34: Peace!

Through the hustle and bustle or the humdrum everyday lives we lead and see around us, we come across small moments in time that make us stop, take a deep breath and slow down. We’d like to see you capture a moment of Peace ☮ this week.

Have a little think about any places or scenes that calm you down or center you – a tranquil lake setting, a walk through a wooded path with a close one or something close to home like your grandpa taking his afternoon siesta. It’s all about the image evoking a feeling of serenity, calm and tranquility.

August Sunset at the countryside, this was my choice this week

The idea doesn’t necessarily need to be minimalistic , all that matters is whether the viewer understands the point of view and story your photo ought to be showing. The lighting and overall color tone of the scene will be important too, so please spare a thought for those aspects too.

There are tons of places, people and scenes that can convey this purest of emotions; so as we usually say, take a few deep breaths, center yourself and take your shot.

Peaceful moment at the beach

I have been at my summer house. One word, that can be said about the place is that it is peaceful. Hardly any neighbors, no traffic sounds. Silence, if you do not take to account the natures sounds. I took shot of this tail of the sunset ( aiming the camera towards northwest) the colors towards west were so vibrant, even if the moment was peaceful the colors would not convey that. So I turned towards the more muted tones. I had several ideas for this week, but did not get anything done towards making them become reality, planning is not enough. I hope this shot still shows peace.

The shots below show the vibrancy of the sunset and even if it was peaceful the colors do somehow tell the story, or what so you think? The blues in the last shot say it better, no ?

Clouds

Sunny day clouds or dark clouds in the sky this sight makes me want stop and take a photo.

Hay time

Watching others work. It is that time of the year when hay is being gathered from the fields, this summer earlier than usual

I was not expecting to have a summer holiday this year, but suddenly I found out that I could have two weeks. So hip hurray, I am on vacation 😊

Sunday

We have tried to go home for hours but with no luck, Tinka won’t come in as she senses that we are leaving. So we took a drive to the store and saw this bright rainbow on our way back.

End of the rainbow 🌈

Then we started to watch the world ice hockey final Finland 🇫🇮- Canada 🇨🇦.

Game on…

Sunset

Not for any other reason than, I like this shot. Cows in the field with sunset behind them.

Which one ~ 2

I am going to post these post about two edits so I can try to find out what people like, I might go over the top with some, but as I am trying to learn a new artsy take on some photographs by giving your opinion you are greatly helping me learn a new skill. Please comment I truly appreciate it. I am going to post the favorite one on my FB account.

I went slightly overboard with this one. SORRY!! there are two sets of choices. I could not make up my mind which two to pick 🙂

This is an old country road in Kirkkonummi, I love this old oak tree next to the road. The entryway to the property next door is also inviting. I always admire this view which ever season maybe.

Sunset

Beautiful sunset in Lahti Finland
Sunset at the countryside

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.

Dandelion field

Countryside is a great place to be at this time of Corona time. Witnessing the merge of green is good for the spirits

Dandelion fields at the end of May

Happy cows

It is rare to see cows outside nowadays, so I get exited every time I do see them in the field. You can see them more than some years back, but still. So, I ask my hubby to stop the car so I can take photos, he kindly obliges so my whims. Now I would like to share my excitement (photos) of seeing HAPPY COWS under the blue sky on green field.

On the road

It has been once again a day of rain and sunshine. Mostly rain. I drove to Lohja Hospital to have a Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of my foot that has bothered me for a year and a half now. Hopefully after these new ones they will know what to do with it. Operation or just continue as it is… well this is not what my picture are about. As I said I drove there, it was through the country roads and this is what I tooks photos of. Our ever changing clouds

Misty August evening

I love the soft and sweet August light, the mist that comes after the rain and the colors of it. One again I spent a weekend at my summer place. I have gotten to the habit of leaving my computer home so I do not end up by mistake spending hours on it. These are from Saturday evening.

Soft light
MIST

In July the different shades of greens in the nature are so evident and beautiful. These are taken moments before sunset.

Autumn Vibes~10

it has been a lovely weekend, yesterday was cloudy but warm, today sunny and warm. Perfect time to capture the magic of Autumn colors. This was the first stop

August country side

The nostalgic country side is for real.

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…

May 22

A road i often walk in summer, it passes my summer home. It is a great spot the season change.

 

MAY 1

It has been raining and cloudy most of the of the weekend, it had been raining all day and it cleared for the night. I took this opportunity to go for a misty evening walk. It was half past ten when I shot these night photos. I do like these lighter nights, the beautiful blues just before it gets dark and this night the mist that enhanced the view.

Night time

it was a beautiful misty summer night at the countryside, I went for a walk…with my camera and this is something I captured on my camera.

May sunset

Our spring is totally messed up, Saturday it was sunny +19, today evening it was snowing and +2C. These are from Saturday  just prior sunset. I like how the light colors the trees.
