one sunset in töölönlahti.

a couple of weeks ago one day started off cloudy and dull but towards the end of the afternoon the sky opened up: that day I remember witnessing one of the most beautiful and colourful sunsets I have ever seen! as soon as I saw that the sky was clearing I rushed to Töölönlahti with my Nikomat EL and my Cokin Filters right on time to capture such a magic moment on my film.
one sunset in Töölönlahti:
Nikomat EL - Kodak 400
watching that sunset was magnificent: it felt like spring had already come to Helsinki. I am so happy about the way these photographs turned out that I have even framed one of them - the second.
happy weekend and happy spring to you all!

  2. So beautiful Polly! To watch a full sunset is such a peaceful and meaninful moment. The movie "Before Midnight" has a lovely and beautiful sunset scene and now, whenever I see a sunset I get reminded of that moment :)

  4. These remind me of a beautiful watercolour painting. They honestly make me want to take up painting again (but I get frustrated and quit half way through every painting I have ever done!) I love the vignette on them!

  8. Sunsets are the best to immerse and lose yourself in and, of course, to photograph! :)
