These photos on from the tea country in Sri Lanka. I have such a burn to be somewhere warm, green…just to get away from winter. So I was going through my photos and… well here I am sharing you with my memories.
As always, all photos can be enlarged by a click. I Love the shadows the trees cast, the relief they give from the heat.

We saw this wonderful sight at the coast of Sri Lanka. One rarely gets to see a blue whale so close. We were told to be quiet and having listened to the captains orders; the whale came to check out our boat. It swam around and under our boat, so we were able to see it up and close – It was impressive!
This one is great, I have hundreds of pictures of shorelines. Love to share these,
I will add shores from various places…all just as beautiful.
These first ones are from Finland – the last one to showing what we moving towards slowly – winter.
Cyprus has beautiful shorelines also – and that sea – the color …so so beautiful
Sri Lanka had some lovely beaches and the shorelines
The white sand in Thailand…the sea.

We do not have mountains in Finland, more like arctic hills. So mypictures of mountains have been shot in Sri Lanka near the tea country – in Kegalle.
