Beautiful boat

Perhaps in a wrong place this time of the year. Should be covered as dry before cold weather comes.


Sunset at Baltic sea

Picture taken in the end of November in Helsinki.


Sunny day in Helsinki in November

Kayaking after sunset in Helsinki

Shutter speed 1/15 s.  Nicely people are sharp  but paddles move faster and are blurred. Shot yesterday evening after sunset in Lauttasaari, Helsinki.


Sundown in Helsinki

Shot with my new Canon EOS 5DMarkIV. I sold my 7DMII and 5DMII, both of them with decent shutter counts and received from 7DMII 800 € and from 5DMII 600 €.  I paid from  the new one 3200 €.  Nothing has changed: camera bodies are Christmas presents and lenses are for life.


River Juutua in Lapland

The summer is very late an colors of leaves bright.


Torronsuo National Park

Visited yesterday  Torronsuo National Park in Southern Finland. We walked miles along duckboards and saw five cranes, only. The bog over there is very beautiful and should have this time lots of birds.
