Let’s join Ice Swimmer on his walk around the island in the next chapter of his series.
Chapter 9 – Interlude II, Colours
This interlude is about colours, warm and cold, greens, yellows, reds and others.
It’s another beautiful day on Harakka so let’s join Ice Swimmer on his walk around the island.

With Winter nearing its end, at least here, it’s time to look back at the snow that we had.
Oh, and did you know, there’s going to be Frozen 2
Elsa is essentially a superhero now and we're definitely ok with that. Watch the first trailer for Frozen 2 right here! pic.twitter.com/4tXrEkEDRg

It’s time to take another walk with Ice Swimmer as he tours us around Harakka.
These pictures were taken on the rocks of Harakka, in various places and various times, both on Saturday and on Sunday. The wild/feral violas could be found all over the rocks wherever there was a large and dry enough crack or other place in which there was some soil.
Our journey on the rocks of Harakka will continue in the next post of this series.
It’s time to take a walk again with Ice Swimmer who’s here with the next chapter in his series.
A look back north to the path that goes to the western cliffs. The Artists’ Building is in the right behind the earthworks. [Read more…]
An interesting find from Avalus.
I found this little piece of (oil) shale next to roadway currently under maintenance/construction. It is the imprint of a fern and something else. The stone might have come from the near Saar-region, where coal was dug up from the ground. The ‘waste-rocks’ are used as road-gravel.
‘We are walking on history’ gets a deeper meaning here, I guess.
(I need to take a picture of the fossil fern next to a living fern in spring :) )
We’re back at Harakka with Ice Swimmer for the next chapter in his series.
Days aren’t siblings. Sunday was a sun day. This is the view from the Ullanlinna jetty towards Kaivopuisto. [Read more…]
Nightjar has been stalking the light with her camera again and here is her feature for the month of January.
January Light can be as bright as it gets when the sun is shining and dew is reflecting sunlight in all directions. The first three photos show this very well and illustrate what sunny January mornings are like here. But January can be rainy and cloudy too, with the subdued light and soaked forest producing a very different mood. On rainy days colours aren’t bright, but they are quite saturated and rich as the last three photos show. Whatever version of January Light we get, green is ubiquitous and irresistible.
From Avalus, some action photos and a bit of humour to get the week started.
Hey folks, I just found this gem from 2017.

Butterfly and Bumblebee Actionsequence! Rumble around a thristleflower!
Airing next Spring in a Field near You (again)!
Thanks, Avalus. That was fun.
It’s time for the next chapter in Nightjar’s series.
I often amaze myself with the amount of time spent and number of photos taken without looking past a square meter of space. A love for macro photography tends to do that to people, I guess. Coming down the West Hill I noticed a patch of moss and lichen. It was a small patch, but with so many things going on. Enough to fill the last two chapters of this series. First, I was fascinated by tiny lichen.
