Today is supposedly the last day of summer according to article I read in the paper. The rains are coming down on us from tomorrow. Lets see what happens…

But in the mean while here is a photo I want to share. I am starting my fall by taking on painting again and I will also start to study / do sculpture after few years of doing nothing on either of these hobbies of mine. And the photo – I thought I would use this photo as an inspiration on my first painting.

Summer holiday

Out time at summer cottage continues in warm and sunny weather. I love way this view change. These are taken in the afternoon , evening and night time the last on I took just now. The color and atmosphere is captivating at all times.

Hong Kong Skyline

I am trying to get my photos from January posted, so I can get to my current photos. I actually have some new ones, not many, but few. This post has photos from the skyline of Hong Kong, buildings. I most likely will later post some of them again by themselves, but the elimination process is hard.

June – the light

I love how the light touches the waves of different shades of blues, making the glitter brightly under the dark intense clouds & sea (1 of 1)-3

Afternoon at Liuskasaari

We stopped to have coffee at Pop up Kahvila Liuskasaari. If you visit the island be sure to pop there. Nice and friendly service and the pancakes and coffee were delicious.

Dark clouds


During our visit to French Riviera we saw this amazing sky, so deep colors and beautiful contrast between the colors of the sea and the intensity of the clouds – amazing sight!


Skywatch Friday – Lapland blues

These are taken in Ylitornio in Lapland around 4 PM, with my mobile phone, so the quality is not totally up to my expectations, as we took a snow scooter ride through the woods. Untouched nature around us what can I say, I have never been a winter person, but the nature there in all blue tones in just gorgeous.

Cerulean,, is a color term that may be applied to certain colors with the hue ranging roughly between blue and cyan, overlapping with both. It also largely overlaps with azure and sky blue, although cerulean is dimmer.
The first recorded use of cerulean as a color name in English was in 1590. The word is derived from the Latin word caeruleus, “dark blue, blue or blue-green”, which in turn probably derives from caelulum, diminutive of caelum, “heaven, sky”
