We actually went to the woods to look for mushrooms. We heart there were already some, even though usually the mushroom season would only begin in autumn. Anyways – one day there was this mushroom standing in the shadow of a birch tree, in the middle of the small lawn between the cottage and the lake. We didn’t really dare to pick it – so we left it in hope that maybe next year there would be some more to pick.
The Svartholma Sea Fortress as seen from the sea – from a Distance. And if you look closely you can see there is also the moon hanging above the fortress island.
A view to the ‘backside’ of the Svartholma Sea Fortress. In this photo you can see the fortress walls – and two boats parked near the main harbor of the island.
Another view from the Svartholma Sea Fortress – a Sailboat passing by.
This is what summer in Finland feels like: a relaxing afternoon by the lake. Just some fish in the water, birds in the sky – and a couple of clouds passing by. Later the sauna will be on and we’ll have some food and some drinks – by the lake.
I just liked a lot how the sunlight looks so nice. Trees casting shadows on the blueberries on the forest floor – everything is just so green. So I took this walk-by shot – some motion captioned in this picture. An action shot – without much action.
You can also find this image from the stock photo section.
No wind – the lake lies quiet, surronded by woods. The sun sets – and the sunset is mirrored in the lake. And when the sun sets in Finland, it often sets for quite a long time. In the north sunsets can go on for hours and hours – especially around midsummer you can basically enjoy a colorful sunset almost for half the night.
View to the open sea on a windy, almost stormy day. Hanko is basically a peninsular. This photo was taken on the west coast of the Hanko peninsular.
A rock by the sea near Tammisaari / Ekenäs. Why i took this picture? The rock has a few details that i found quite fascinating. First you can see how the rock was basically formed or even folded. In the middle of the picture you can see such a fold. And then there are the scratches the glaciers applied to the rock when they moved south. You can see such scratches or sanding marks on rocks literally everywhere across Finland.
Well – and in the background you can see sun setting and the Baltic Sea – which is always a nice photo opportunity. And there is even a small beach, which is rather rare in Finland.
