Remember what I said in my last post? About the interesting pictures that could have been made anywhere outside that day? We’ll here’s what I meant! Hair + breathing + cold weather = amazing :D
There’s something quite magical about this IMO. Doesn’t really look like hair either :D But it is my hair. The macro lens sure does deliver! C: (As usual, I haven’t processed these photos in any way in photoshop or anything like that.)
This last one was taken with a regular lens (aka not a macro lens). It’s not so magical anymore, as one can more clearly see that it’s my hair in the picture (and the black thing is my coat). You can’t get close with a regular lens, I even cropped this one a bit to shave of the excess picture i.e my nostrils and the zipper of the coat :D
I do quite like these, so I may have to work this idea again in the future.
A dream quote for today: “If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.”
PS. I went to the ER about my finger. Turns out it has a minor fracture, so now my pinky (which has the fracture) is nicely tied together with my ring finger… EXTREME it was :D
Today, it was again extremely cold. I had to really push myself to go outside to take some pictures. However the storm that apparently (I wasn’t here to witness it because I was in my other home) raged here a few weeks ago had resulted in a whole lot of things on the lakeside getting an icy coating. There were some pretty amazing ice formations, but unfortunately the light was not what I desired (aka the sun didn’t hit the icicles because it was shining so low) :c The ground beneath my feet had also gotten an icy coating, I discovered; I slipped and am now wondering about the possible need to go to the ER because of a possibly fractured finger… Extreme. :D
Babbling aside, here are the best pics. Enjoy!
I love this, but my infinite love for bridges might have something to do with it… :DD
Of course my love for ice it not a secret either ^^
This plant was not in the water line, but it had also been bitten by the cold
While walking by the lake I noticed that I would have been able to get some very interesting photos without having to have to go there. It would have sufficed to just go out side. I’ll show you what I meant in the next post. Hint: The cold air was a factor with this too C:
A dream quote for today: “Happiness is having a dream you cannot let go of and a partner who would never ask you to.” Now here’s a happiness I too wish to achieve ^^
The Finnish winter has shown it’s teeth. Yesterday it was a beautiful winter day in Joensuu, which I took advantage of by taking some photographs of frozen grass blades. I really am happy about buying that macro lens! :D Right now I’m sitting on a train on my way to the south. Ironically the weather is far worse in the southern Finland than it was in the north. There’s a huge blizzard roaring and the trains are running late by several hours. We are already running over 10 minutes late and we haven’t even reached the real blizzard zone yet. Hope I’ll get home safe D: Anyway, enjoy the pictures! ^^
A dream quote for today: “You will not do incredible things without an incredible dream.” ^^
Here are even more photos of my evening walk last saturday night. When you look at the light hitting the beach sand you wouldn’t easily believe that the temperature was in fact very wintery. Of course if you actually look at the picture you’ll notice there’s some ice in it too. But you get my point. I’m still amazed about the light. Today was such a lovely day too, unfortunately I didn’t have time to go take some photographs because I had to study microbiology… :/ Not really my piece of cake, but I’ll get through, hopefully.
Enjoy the photos! ^^
Today’s dream quote: “You face the biggest challenge of all: to have the courage to seek your big dream regardless of what anyone says. You are the only person alive who can see your big picture and even you can’t see it all” <3
More pictures from my evening walk a few days back. Please enjoy!
I have said it before and I will say it again; I just LOVE ice. The evening glow hit these ornate-looking ice formations so beautifully! It inspired me to take these abstract photographs C: They kind of have a fairytale feel to them IMO.
A dream quote for today: “You must never stop dreaming. Face reality, yes. But don’t stop with the way things are; dream of things as they ought to be.” <3
The Autumn is nearing at an end. Winters coming. Yesterday the frost on the grass and the ice on the puddles didn’t melt for the whole day. Today was a bit warmer, but the puddles where still partly frozen. Hrrr.. I had a free day from the university today, so I went to take some photographs. It was only a quick 20 minute session but I still got a few shots I’d like to share with you C: Hope you like them!
If you look very closely you’ll see that the lady in the picture must have thought her outfit through very carefully. A perfect match! Or maybe it was just a coincidence. Either way, I couldn’t pass the opportunity :D
As you can see, most trees have lost nearly all their leaves, unlike the beautiful yellow-leaved trees on the upper picture. And also unlike in the upper picture, it’s mostly not that bright and light anymore. There’s no cheery beauty to this picture, rather a thorn bush like dark beauty.
As many of you regulars remember I love ice! The fact that something so simple can have so many beautiful forms just inspires me every time. I look forward to the air getting even colder so I can take some photographs of it ^^ This picture was taken at a brook which was partly frozen.
