A few more photos from last Sunday in Lammassaari. I'm not particularly happy with these — the light was dull and uninspiring, but I still thought I would share them since the walk per se was nice. I hope next weekend I will be more inspired; maybe someone will like to join our next photowalk — that would be wonderful!

Just when I thought Helsinki would be white for the rest of the winter, the weather proved me wrong once again and the snow melted all away. Despite the cold and the clouds, I cannot imagine spending an entire weekend indoors; a walk in the nature always makes me feel better. These were taken yesterday morning in Lammassaari.

A few more photographs from our photowalk with Heidi last Saturday in Seurasaari. The sun had eventually hidden behind the clouds, but the light remained for a while longer and the last few photographs turned out very atmospheric in my opinion!
I'm very happy with the feedback I got about this latest photowalk and I hope to be able to keep up with it. Already looking forward to the next outing with my camera!

I met Heidi for a portrait session last summer, but when she contacted me again a few days ago I did not want our new photographs to be just portraits; I wanted them to tell a story. It was so lucky that the sun came out during our photowalk: the winter light is beautiful because it is so rare! I'm very happy with the atmosphere of these photographs, but I will be even happier if someone tells me that I have succeeded in telling a story; that they feel the connection that was missing in my portraits.

These were taken on Sunday during a walk in the neighbourhood, but the snow has continued to fall since then. It's so beautiful to see everything white already at the beginning of November and it's not common to have snow with leaves still lingering on the trees. I'm so thankful for this early snow fall! Even if the cold is unbearable, I really can't wait to be able to go out taking photographs again. Come weekend, come!

The first snow came a few days ago and plenty more fell today. I'm so happy it seems like this will be a proper winter: we hadn't had snow falling so early in years. I was dreading the darkness of November, but everything looks brighter now! These photographs are from yesterday — Saturday morning — when we took a walk outside the city. Our walks must be shorter now that the temperature is below 0°C degrees.
