Globe flowers are beautiful and very common in Lapland.

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

Yes, the sun is low and that is good for a photographer.

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.

Lesser centaury

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

Swan under arc



Yesterday was different. No wind and heavy mist on the Baltic sea. The sun was shining through fog behind me and somehow a white arc was formed in front of me. There was a friendly swan putting herself in the middle. Perfect!
