I had spent the whole day inside, working on my computer. I went out before sunset, took my bike and rode along the shore to a place north of Hietaniemi. I tried some shoots, see how long of an exposure I could use, but it was cloudy, and I expected the evening to be very boring. I walked a bit to the south, to the marina I had noticed the day before. Suddenly, the clouds were lit from beneath, they seemed incandescent. I stopped, tried to make some pictures but the moment didn’t last.
I walked a bit further, and I realized that some strong colors were appearing again. I started to walk faster, and settled in a place by the shore, where I witnessed a fantastic show. One more in Fantastic Finland.
At some points, a flock of ducks angled towards me. I guess that, in their mind, a man standing by the sea is very likely to feed them. Well I don’t feed ducks, but they stayed, and I included them in my composition, for better and for worst.
Here are two other sunset picture from Helsinki, taken this summer. Enjoy 🙂
