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.

In one underpass of Vilnius, there are walls and walls of artwork – too much to photograph in entirety, but the styles and themes are various, and best of all, nobody shies away from using colour. Here’s a small sample:
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.
As I am in Vilnius until Wednesday, I would like to take this small moment to cast a shadow (work will most likely occupy the rest of my time). Thank you, Nightjar, for those lovely photos of flowers and sunshine (really – today I got back to the hotel, refreshed Affinity, and it was… wow) – in sharp contrast, this is what we have: a look at Vilnius in evening (NB: there is still light, a month ago it would be completely dark!).
Here is a song from Estonia, to complete the Baltic triptych:
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…]
That, apparently, is a quote by R Buckminster Fuller. It is also the title of a series of photographs by Reuben Wu, taken in Spitzbergen, with a particular focus on the Svalbard Satellite Station. About the series:
Taken on Spitzbergen, in the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, Reuben Wu’s images detail the breathtaking appearance of our planet’s extremities. His photograph series Love Is Metaphysical Gravity is a visual feast of soft pink and blue colour tones, artic landscapes, dreamy auroras and the incomprehensible beauty of the unpolluted night’s sky.
While Love Is Metaphysical Gravity in part serves as a documentary of the remote islands and the radomes of the Svalbard Satellite Station, what it is perhaps most sensitive to is this: It may be one of the most uninhabited places on Earth, but Spitsbergen is no stranger to communication.
Picking out favourites out of that icy landscape is a challenge, but here’s a couple from Reuben’s website:
Lofty has sent us a few follow-up photos to his post of January 21/19, Mt. Lofty.
Here are some pictures taken from Mt Lofty on the morning of the day after the super Bloody Full Moon Eclipse Thingy. The first shot is of moonset over the city, the second and third are of the sun about to rise over Mt Barker, the next little mountain to the ESE. They only vary in zoom and where the auto exposure is pointed. The building on the right of the picture is Mt Lofty House, nowadays an upmarket hotel. Notice how they are taking fire safety seriously, with a row of large water tanks set below the main entrance.
Beautiful shots, Lofty. Thanks for sharing.
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…]
