Swans and a lighthouse

Picture taken from Suomenlinna in Helsinki.


Beautiful boat

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

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.


Lesser centaury

I found this beautiful, little flower at shoreline in Helsinki, today.


Marsh tea

Wolverine in Finland

Shot from a hide in Lieksa, Finland.

The wolverine is a stocky and muscular carnivore, more closely resembling a small bear than other mustelids. The wolverine, a solitary animal, has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many times larger than itself. Wikipedia.
