autumn at the mökki IV.

most of that Saturday the sky had been clear and it was only later in the afternoon that the wind died down and the clouds started to gather. I took these first three photographs when the sky was completely overcast: they look very different from the ones I have previously shared yet I find them beautifully nostalgic - the autumn colours appear somehow brighter against the grey sky.

Nikon FM - Fuji Pro 400H
Hasselblad 500 C/M - Fuji Pro 400H
by the time we got back to the cottage and had some delicious potatoes backed on the open fire - the evening winds had cleared the sky once again: that evening we were able to witness a truly breath-taking sunset. as soon as the sun went down and the sky begun to turn pink and red Jacopo and I run out to the shore with our cameras to capture the scene: it was spectacular! ♥

  1. It is hard to believe but the way how u described the evening makes me even looking forward to the colder, cosier days and suddenly I don't miss summer at all. I can feel the warmth of open fire and smell of the potatoes. Just beautiful! xx

  6. wow, Polly! The whole environment you describe makes me long so much for similar things! It also makes me a bit sad that I won't be able to feel the cold weather and the beautiful light of Scandinavia... But we are all very lucky in our own ways to experience the particularities of our climates.
    What I really mean is, these are wonderful! It must have been such a lovely time with Jacopo!
    Also, I've been feeling like I really want to send you something by post mail, would you like to give me your postal adress? If you do, pelase drop a line to oemaildotiagoedacatarina[at]gmail[dot]com

    warm hugs!
