look up.

when spring comes the sky looks different every day here in Helsinki: the wind moves the clouds around and very often there are some incredible sunsets. I never get tired of looking up at the sky - especially in the evenings when it is so colourful. I took these on an evening walk last week.

some might think I spend too much time taking photographs of the evening sky - but sunsets will always make me feel ecstatic just like good music: you would never get tired of your favourite album!

  3. I find this same thing happens here in Canada. All winter you have very pastel, subdued sunsets and then come summer the sky is on fire every night! I love it! Sometimes I purposefully leave the camera/phone at home though to force myself to just enjoy it. Do you see the northern lights much in Finland?

    1. I understand what you mean, Shy! Actually, Helsinki is far too south to see the Northern Lights. You can see them very often in the North of Finland - Lapland, but I have never seen them yet. Hopefully, one day soon though!

  5. Oh my these are so lovely! I love the blueish tones and the building poping up in the last photo, in the middle of the darker landscape. Magic!

  6. It's crazy if anyone thinks you can look at the sky even close to enough! These are breathtaking!

  7. There's no such thing as "taking too many pictures of the evening sky". ;)
