Frozen Echo

Quiet, cold and blue. It has been quite a change in the weather for the past two weeks. Cold and clear skies, now we just need this to continue so we can all enjoy it as much as possible! Here is a dual exposure vertorama taken at the coast of Finland merged together in Photoshop. Hope you like it.

Silent Elegance

It was freezing cold in Emäsalo, Finland yesterday evening. Just when the sun had set I saw this beautiful frost covered rock in the sea. I had the 10 stop B&W ND -filter on and set the exposure to 90 sec. Hope you like it.

Dark Times II

It has been dark, rainy and we even had couple of foggy days. Here is a dreamy image from couple of my images. I included some detail shots on what lies in the image when you view it closely. I hope you like the image. Hope to have some light soon to this darkness. 

Dark times

It has been dark and rainy for the last few days. The snow is starting to melt and the spring is near, even if it doesn't look like it. The times seems dark and mysterious and to represent the time here is a new dreamy image.. 

Thank you for looking. Enjoy your week!
