I am still spending a couple of days with my family and I am so grateful for the time we are having together — not to mention that the weather has been incredibly beautiful. This morning I took a photowalk with my sister in Pian di Spagna nature reserve and these are a few of my favourite shots: I am really happy with them!

Merry Christmas! Like every year, I am spending it in Italy with my family. The weather has been sunny and welcoming so far, so I'm hoping there will be time to take more photos! Yesterday afternoon my sister and I joined my parents for a walk by the lake in Sorico: the light was magnificent and I even succeeded in capturing a couple of swans. Most of all, I'm happy I was able to spend such a beautiful afternoon outdoors with the people I love. I hope you are also spending the holidays with your loved ones!

Despite being the darkest time of the year, December has gifted us with a few unexpected sunny days. The temperatures are too cold and the day light too short to be outside for long, so planning photowalks is difficult. These were taken today around 2 pm — just before the sunset — in Tarvo. The ground was frosty and the sun setting made for some beautiful backdrops. This is a time for tea drinking with friends to fight the cold and darkness, but I long to be outdoors with my camera.

A few more photographs from last Saturday in Nuuksio with Alina. Towards the end of our photowalk the sun came out and the air became a bit warmer. I felt so lucky to be outside with my camera at the right time: these moments are so rare in December. I really hope to be that lucky a few more times before the end of the year!

Welcome back December, I hope you will bring some more snow and clear skies!
It has been hard to find someone willing to go on a photowalk: the weather is so cold, not many people like to spend time outdoors. I was so happy when I contacted Alina and she said she would be interested in it! She also works with photography and graphic design, so we had a lot to talk about while walking around Nuuksio! I'm very pleased with the way the photographs turned out — below are a few of my favourites.
