Hello all... and happy 2018! I have picked some of my favourite photos taken last year. They are many and they have been chosen with no discernible logic, indeed with no logic whatsoever. :)
Weatherwise, the year 2017 wasn't the happiest. We were not hit by severe disasters, but the year being unusually cool and rainy has damaged the agriculture and forestry. And it has been so terribly dark, especially now in winter when the days are short. One, two weeks ago I noticed that the sun was colouring in pink and gold the tops of the trees on the other side of the lake, but before I had my snowsuit on, the sun rays had already disappeared and it was starting to snow ... :D
Tervetuloa, vuosi 2018! Jos sopii, voisit olla hieman aurinkoisempi ja lämpimämpi kuin edeltäjäsi...
|One of my best bird photos ever|
Last year I took my first photos of (Eurasian) cranes. The photos make me think of Japan... and I just learned that in Japanese culture the red-crowned crane is a mystical creature, and symbolising for example loyalty and strength, it is featured for example in the international logo of Japan Airlines.
Have a lovely weekend!
