The wind is blowing and all the leaves are falling down. The colourful autumn foliage is soon over.

Wetland for birds, Pitkäjärvi.

This lake Pitkäjärvi with huge wetland for birds is on the border of Harjavalta and Kokemäki. At the time of autum foliage there is already quiet. Birds have left for warmer countries, but the scenery is amazing.

Cranes are flying to the warmer countries.

Migratory birds, as cranes, are just now, after the first night frosts, leaving this country. Thousands of cranes are gathering on the fields eating grain and waiting for right winds. They will fly to the Southern Europe, some to the Northern Africa. We are watching big crane wedges on the sky and cry a little bit. It is so magnificient, and sad, are we still here to see them flying back in next spring.

To the South! A huge crane wedge.

A Ladybug and A Sunflower Bud in September.

The wind has a smell of snow, nightfrosts are here. Last night it was -3°C/ 25 °F.  We still have life here. I was really surprised to see a ladybug in a sunflower bud. Sunflowers didn´t have time to open their buds. Migratory birds are just now leaving these areas.

The first sunset after May 16th.

The sun didn´t set at all in the Northern parts of Finland between May 16th and July 29th. So for 74 days in a village of Nuorgam the sun was above the horizon at night. It is an amazing feeling to see sun shining at night, and there is not much difference between a day and night.

Our nights here in Southern Finland are already dark, the sun sets at 22.18 and rises at    4.50.

This photo taken is about midnight at the end of June on the area we live.

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle, when the Sun remains visible at the local midnight.



I changed my blog address.

It was photofinland.wordpress.com.

I wanted to change it, because here in Finland is so many photofinland blogs.

The new address is


Now the old address is closed and the new one doesn’t work, I have tried about thousand times.

I paid 13 euros to get the old address linked to the new one, it doesn’t work.

Could you, please, try the new address and tell me what happens.



Spring Under the Old Oak.

A huge old oak is like a sacred place in our yard. We don´t touch the ground at all and all plants are welcome to blossom there. These photos are taken today 26.4.2019.
