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.
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.
Time to enjoy and relax
Summer day in Helsinki, sitting in the park people watching and enjoying tasty ice cream, having lunch at a restaurant. What a beautiful capital we have.
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.
I had so many problems with loading the photos into the last post at least 4 attempts to have them in a gallery of my choosing. So I got frustrated and I’ve stayed away for four days. Let’s hope this post is easier. Suomenlinna is a lovely place to visit so I decided to share the joy with you – again .
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.
I took a walk on the gravel road and picked summer flowers for my deck
It is that time of the year that you can spot some waterlilies. We spent few hours at Mustio Castle grounds. It is a place I yearly love to visit, one of the reason is these flowers.
I was sitting in my backyard watching the clouds gather into the intense blue gray color. I took these just before the thunderstorm was above us.The temperature dropped three degrees in just s short while…got to love Finnish summer and the amazing 17 C degrees of warmth.
I had great visit to a cottage to see relatives visiting from Australia.
I love the beautiful Birch tree woods you can spot here and there, not too often so that you will be numbed to their beauty
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 sight
June is here already and I have been up to the same old stuff, taking photos of wild flowers and nature at my 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…
