winter walk with my nikon fm.

on the last saturday before 2013 the sun was shining in Helsinki for the first time in more than one month: since we knew it wouldn't last for long we decided to go to Suomenlinna and it was truly worth it - despite the fact it was -8°C.
photos of a very wintry Suomenlinna:

ducks in Tokoinranta:

Nikon FM - Fuji Superia X-TRA 800
unfortunately we missed the first ferry and once we reached the island with the next one the sun was almost set already - thankfully I still managed to take some photographs before a thick layer of fog came and covered up everything around us. the day after we met a numerous group of ducks on the shores of Tokoinranta: they didn't seem to be scared of us at all.

  2. non oso immaginare il freddo polare... quindi non mi vedrete di nuovo da quelle parti prima di pasqua :D ma non posso negare che sia davvero affascinante *-*
