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.

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.

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 .

Before the thunderstorm

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.

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 – Splash in a wine glass

Playing with my camera and trying to learn something new. I tried with  several different settings to capture a splash in a glass,  like they have in ads. Over hundres frames and even to get this result,  was an effort. Many ice cubes was used and cold fingers for the assistant cameraman.
