It’s pouring outside and I’m sitting here in my room, sipping hot tea, diving into graphology, ordering accessories and enjoying a calm me-time. Oh and of course I’m again late with my pictures – this a pic per day thing is not going that great. I’m sorry, my faithful readers, I shall improve this sloppery!
So, Midsummer, the best smelling (tar, smoke, wood and diverse flowers) and lightest time of the year is over. Sob. It was great though, I got to enjoy my birthday treat and we visited the Söderskär archipelago a few miles south of Porvoo: a group of several tiny islands, millions of nesting birds and an old light-house. I’m enjoying the sea with every such trip…
… and this is what stuck the most from the trip and from the entire Midsummer: the fog. It was magical though! (yet not capturable)
Let’s start with a few shots from the night before Midsummer. This was taken at about 10pm, check out the light – and the massively angry seagulls.
Now back to Söderskär and fog and mist and a massive fail re: camera settings. Argh!
(in the above picture please do note the island keeper – a volunteer bird researcher. A whole lot of charisma he had.)
The vegetation was limited to a few trees and numerous bunches of chives… nom!
And of course we explored the lighthouse! (not currently in use, sadly)
