The somewhat famous vessel Arctic Sea went past these lighthouses off the coast of Jakobstad, Finland on her way south.

Want to explore gorgeous nocturnal colours you could not otherwise pick up? Get some kind of remote or other gadget to enable longer e…

Fox pup

Fox pup
Photographed circa 1995-97 (did look it up once when I put the same image on flickr but can't remember anymore), this is a new scan of it.

Shot using my father's F2 using probably a Novoflex 400mm f/5.6 (my father has also a 200mm f/5.6 and 640mm f/9 but…

One of many for this couple.




Would have added one of Ronan Keatings tracks but deezer.com seems to have removed the option to embed selected tracks.

Colour separation sunset

Colour separation sunset
Here's a sunset from June 2008 (three black and white exposures combined into a colour image). Not as accurate or successful as one taken in sunlight at noon, but perhaps interesting still.

See the digital companion shot that show the colours as they wer…

The carcass of an earless/true seal pup (I'm guessing it's a Phoca vitulina, Common seal a.k.a. Harbour seal). My apologies if anyone is startled.

A ditch next to a field and a main road. See it large.

Having been at a loss at what to upload to illustrate my vacation in July I chose one which represents Ostrobothnia, the region of Finland I'm native of. This is shot when the sun was setting over a…

Iso 200, f/11 or 16, 1/4000.

Today's eclipse near its peak in Ostrobothnia, Finland. Was able to photograph it and observe it when hid behind intermittent cumulus clouds. Soon back from my vacation, plenty of images to process (my mother's…

Blogged here.

A disused mill on the northern Purmo å [small river] in Forsby, Pedersöre, Finland.

Aerial duel

A sea eagle (a.k.a. white-tailed eagle) duelling an osprey. While being harrassed by the smaller osprey the sea eagle would invert itself inflight and use scare tactics with its claws.

I missed some really great shots when they were close by as the autof…
