A sunset and floating mist.

The sun and floating mist make together amazing  lightshows for us.

Mist over the lake. Usvaa järvenselällä.

These sunny and misty days have been excellent for taking photos.

This lake is Kirkkojärvi in Hämeenkyrö. This photo is taken in a village of Kierikkala.

Thousands of Bridges.

Finland is a country of thousands of lakes, islands and rivers. So we have always needed bridges, thousand of bridges.

Kesäkuu. June. Июнь 2016.

We have now a winterstorm with heavy rain. So it is an excellent time to look back to the days and light nights of last summer. All these photos are taken in the evening or at night.

Sleet and flowers.

The world here is totally grey, rain, sleet, snow. I was looking photos in the computer, some many photos, waiting something to happen, so here is flowers for this grey Tuesday.

What do you do with thousands of photos in your computer, just keep them there or do you have cleaning days to destroy some of them?

My Christmas Tree.

kosmon-profiili

My name is Kosmo and I live in faraway Finland. I got my own Christmas tree in the beginning of December. Dad went to our forest and when he came back, he had this tree for me. He put it outside the kichen window, because I am laying around and watching the garden on a windowsill. So I have been able to see it all the time. Oh, I forgot, it has candles, too. This photo is taken on Tuesday after snowing, it still looks very pretty.
