autumn at the mökki II.

what I like the most about spending time at the cottage is being able to live so close to nature: sleeping with the forest above our heads and waking up with the sea sparkling outside our window is one of the most pleasant feelings I have ever known. and there are certain routines like having sauna in the morning and sitting by the open fire in the evening that make everything even more special. that morning we set off with our cameras soon after breakfast: we wanted to make the most of our weekend in the nature and the blue sky was very promising.
autumn at the mökki II:
Nikon FM - Fuji Pro 400H
Hasselblad 500 C/M - Fuji Pro 400H
Maxmo is full of little islets: we spent the first part of the day taking photographs of gorgeous golden trees reflecting on the water surface. it was almost too bright for my 400 iso film rolls - yet I could not help but feeling happy that the weather was so beautiful! we even had a small picnic by the sea as it was unseasonably warm despite the constant wind blowing from the gulf.

    2. I was living in Oslo for a year until last June. I was studying there as an exchange student ! How about you ? I was meaning to ask you but I forgot, I read in your lomography interview that you were not originally from Finland ?

    3. I see; I had never been to Oslo, but I bet it's an interesting city! I'm Italian and I moved to Helsinki three years ago - I really like Finnish nature!
