liminganlahden luontokeskus.

the last weekend of July we took a few days off to visit Jacopo's family in Oulu. the weather had been extremely summery and warm enough to sunbathe at the lake and eating outdoors - which was lovely! one beautiful morning we decided to drive to Liminka to visit the nature reserve of Liminka Bay - where I had never been before. Liminganlahti is a popular spot among bird watchers and the Vistor Centre offers an interesting and detailed exhibition about the birds of the area. we spent a couple of ours walking around the bay and I took my Hasselblad along.
Liminganlahden Luontokeskus:
Hasselblad 500 C/M - Fuji Pro 160 NS
from the rooftop of the Visitor Centre and from the top of the bird tower we could admire the whole of the bay from above: it was such a beautiful sight with that blue sky stretching out ahead. also the big windows inside the bird tower framed the landscape beautifully - I really had to take a photograph!
I would like to go back to Liminganlahti again in the winter time: I am sure it would look so different covered in white snow!

    1. Toi! ♥ It is so nice to see you back again! Where have you been? I am looking forward to see some of your photographs after such a long absence! My summer has been beautiful, but soon it will be over... Finnish summer is not that long at all.
