Nature —> photos—> perfection… (Repeat)

Drawing, photography, photos
Oh my oh my… how I always have loved taking pictures in the nature, especially at the summer time.
All the colors and reflections with sun, are just perfect spots to shoot.

Mostly my photo sessions are at sunny days in the middle of the summer.
Let’s face it, at the winter time there is many things to photograph, like aurora borealis, but sun makes everything look so warm.

I also like to take photos in city area, but it’s a different story.

These photos you’re about to see, is taken around summer to autumn.

Give me sun”
Reflection of the river”
Sometimes funny thing happens when you’re checking the camera roll after the photo shoot.

It’s weird when you have seen the photos trough the lens and you just know the photo is perfect, but when you watch the photo from the laptop, it blows me away.

I use three different cameras, Canon, GoPro and iPhone.
It depends on the spot which I use.

Some photos must be fixed but mostly they are just originals.

After good photo session I do have something like twenty good shots and the rest are average.

Sure my enthusiasm of the finding the perfect click, makes me destroy the most of the pictures.

These are great ones for the screen saver or for the postcards. Although, mostly I just keep them in my photo folders.

Perhaps when I’m ready to be judged, I’m going to throw a gallery somewhere, who knows…

What’s something most people don’t understand?

Midnight Sun at Arctic Circle

This is quite tricky to explain to foreign people.

In Lapland at midsummer we have this
phenomenon called: midnight sun.

People who need darkness when sleeping, can have lot of trouble getting sleep, because summertime in here is quite luminous.

Sun won’t go down, it just circles around.

At night it’s not so warm, but sun is shining.

Check these two pictures, so you can see the difference of midnight sun and afternoon sun.

If you used to live in the areas where is dark at night time, this could scramble your brains pretty good.

Afternoon sun
When you are living magical place like I do, you could think that it gets boring after a time.

Well I’ve been living here my entire life and EVERY summer still gets me stunned.

I just can’t get enough photos of this surrounding beautiful nature.

At night time I tend to go to the river canoeing just with my thoughts.
You can only hear the silence and nature calling.

Floating water is one element what I do need in my life, it makes me calm and works like some sort of drug to my inspiration.

After all these years I still find myself lost in the garden, just wondering how could I be this lucky.

So this midnight sun is one thing that I know, most of people around the globe don’t understand.

If you have a TO-DO list, visiting under the midnight sun should appear in your list.
