birds contemplating landscapes.

november is coming to an end and I am hoping for a snowy december. since Christmas is getting near and some of my friends are soon leaving Finland for the holidays - I have already been preparing a batch of home-made cards to give or send to my dearest ones: this year's theme is birds contemplating landscapes.
sneak peek of my christmas cards:

✻ collage of some of my favourite finnish birds onto some of my photographs of finnish landscapes.
what I love the most about Christmas time is preparing home-made cards for my friends and family and sitting down with Jacopo to write them on a free afternoon.
I cannot way for December to start!
