A Bungy Jump



















There is this 150 meters high bungy jump in Kaivopuisto, Helsinki again this summer. It is the highest in Finland and so many people want to jump... I just can't understand that! No way I could do it!
But somebody did....

In the Heat of the Night














I'm into night phographing now... Last night I decided to get out to the night of Helsinki and take some photos... This pic is taken in Ruoholahti and the bridge goes over to Lauttasaari. The sky was quite amazing.
It has been wonderful and hot in Finland almost all summer and even the night was super warm, almost 30 degrees celsius, great! Something that you can't believe to be true... Still pretty light until midnight, wonderful!  Not very bad conditions to take photos.... Could be like this all year round! I wouldn't mind...

Heijastus














Aivan järkyttäviä uutisia on kuultu Oslosta. Ei oikein tiedä mitä sanoisi eikä pysty ymmärtämään. Tämä kuitenkin osanottoni kaikille omaisille. Surullista.

Lomalla



















Onkin ollut aivan mielettömän upea kesä! Ja lomallahan voi vain olla ja nauttia elämästä, monella tapaa... vaikkapa hyvin viilennetyn juoman ääressä hyvässä seurassa... Oikein ihanaa ja lämmintä ja aurinkoista kesän jatkoa kaikille!

Haukilahti by Night












Last night I got back from a great dinner at my brothers place in an island close to Haukilahti harbor. It was a wonderful warm summer night and I happened to have my camera with me... Moon was almost full and the sea calm. Beautiful!

Partsikukka














Kauan kesti ennenkuin sain partsikukat ostettua ja istutettua... nyt ne jo onneksi hienosti kukkivat... tässä yksi niistä hehkuu upean oranssina.

Wind Turbine














I was spending a few days in Hanko, the true Summer City of Finland, and on the way back home I just had to take a few photos of the wind turbines which can be seen to the main road on the way to Hanko. Many many times I have planned of doing that... and finally it is done! And they are HUGE!!! I was standing right there looking up and felt really small, tiny... and they were also scary... But I survived!

Summer in Suomenlinna












Suomenlinna, a fortress on a group of islands just a few minutes from Helsinki City by a boat, is a wonderful place year around but especially at summer time when it is nice, warm and sunny, blue sea glittering and different kinds of boats "hanging around" and all over you can find these yellow flowers, Ukonpalko. It just is so beautiful!

More information about Suomenlinna can be found at  http://www.suomenlinna.fi/en/fortress

The Dog in the Lake














This dog absolutely loves to swim!! I spent this weekend at my friends summerhouse and their dog Misty would just live in the lake... She was diving into the lake from the dock over and over again... Also splashing the water and swimming in rounds and rounds and rounds... It was so much fun to watch! After all this she slept like a baby...
