Blue Season


We call “Blue Season”  the period when the first snow hits the ground and daylight gets short.  Pictures from our hunting trip to Kainuu, Central Eastern part of Finland.

  3. What do you hunt there? I notice the person in the second photo has a shotgun in his hands but is also carrying a rifle on his back. Great Photos!

      Thanks. We hunt for forest birds like black grouse or wood grouse. A rifle is used if a bird is sitting at the top of a tree up to 300 meters, a shotgun if a bird jumps up from the ground.

  6. Blue Season has a sad connotation to it but it does fit – we can get similar lighting here – I enjoy that first snowfall of winter. Very nice shots.

      People go to Lapland to see blue landscape, it is very beautiful but not sad.
