Bern teaser

Switzerland is a special place for me as I spent quite a bit of time there when I grew up. This week a good friend of mine showed me around in Bern. It was my first time there and for some reason my expecations weren’t all that great. But boy was I wrong.

For today, I have this photo, taken at Schwellenmätteli. Here the river Aare makes a lot of noise, a LOT. The water level dips down only about a metre – not really much you’d think. A lot of rain during the past weeks and months however create a spectacle. Just being there and listen to the sound of rushing water is very powerful.

Longest day (in the northern hemisphere)

It’s the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and today I’ll be out with my gear. For a change not in Finland but in Germany. Visiting family is not often possible but when it’s happening, there isn’t much time to push the limits of the camera.

I’m missing a bit the sea in Oulu, so I decided to head to a waterfall in the black forest. It’s been raining a lot and I hope the leaves and plants will have wonderful tones of green.

Here is a photo from Oulunsalo taken earlier. It’s a very late sunset with the crescent moon peaking through the clouds. Have a lovely day!
