Impressions: Turku

People who have met me in person know that I’m rarely if ever going anywhere without my camera, if photography is prohibited I usually either ignore the rule, or if it is enforced, I try to go somewhere else.
And because I always have at least one camera with me, I end up with hundreds of images every day. With my usual approach of an image and a short bit of text to tell the story of the image, most of the stuff I do will never see the light of day.

Västervik sunset & politics

A swamped boat in the beautiful autumn sunset in Västervik/Vaasa

I shot this image during sunset in the boat harbour of Västervik a few days ago, I liked the different colours of the sea- and “boat”-water, as the sunlight was only partially reflected into the boat and the water in the boat was rather shallow.

If you like my images, please remember to share them with your friends too! They might like them as well. Thanks!

So much for that, next up is a rant about the upcoming municipal elections here in Vaasa, if you’re not from the Vaasa region you can stop reading now.
