one morning in vuosaari.

while everywhere else the first flowers are blooming - here in Finland there is still some snow on the ground. in a place where the winter is so long you have to try to find the beauty of it even when all you really want is spring. I took these photographs one morning in Vuosaari a few weeks ago.
one morning in Vuosaari:
Nikomat EL - Kodak 400
like that white boat I cannot wait for the ice on the sea to finally melt. these once again look like really melancholy photographs - yet when I took that walk by the pier in Vuosaari I did not feel sad but just very peaceful. the wind coming from the sea was cold but smelt wonderfully. I promise I am going to give you some clear skies soon - please keep on stopping by!

    1. Thank you, Katie! That boat sails to a lovely island during the summer... I have never been there, but I would like to go next summer!

    1. They most definitely do! I wish I lived close to the ocean... Helsinki is on the Baltic Sea, which is more like a lake than an ocean!

    1. It really depends, Niken; sometimes the winter lasts until the beginning of May. This winter has been quite mild and short actually, it might be already over.
      Thank you so much!

  7. The serenity in these is breathtaking. Be thankful for this kind of view. Australia lacks this type of snow and oh how I wish we had it.

    I've visited Finland in the summer though and its beautiful. One of my favourite places for sure
