As the year comes to an end I would like to wrap up a little on what happened during this year. It was a fairly busy and this first of two parts will focus on my photography and the second one on everything else.
There was quite a bit of traveling again this year, my photography took me all in all three times to Norway. Once in April, then again in June to the Lofoten Islands and finally in late June to the very north of the country to the Finnmark area. Taking a trip to do landscape photography is just so inspiring and an enormous learning experience. Somehow the eyes seem to work differently when being somewhere else. For me it’s not the amount of images that I take at a certain location, it’s more about returning with at least one good image from each trip. It happened though, that I had the luck to capture more than one good image on each of these trips.
Aside of these excursions I of course took also quite a few images in my closer neighborhood here in Finland, which I unfortunately did not had much time to explore further this year. Hopefully in the next year I have a chance to visit the locations that I actually had planned for this year.
So without any further ado, here’s a collection of my favorite images from this year in no particular order. Links to the blog posts you find under the images and if you are interested, you are of course welcome to browse through my galleries.
It wasn’t really easy to decide which images to include in this post and there are still quite few images waiting to be processed. They will come up sooner or later here on the blog also of course.
Usually around this time of year I have posted some sort of summary of the events during this year, together with a few of my favorite images from this year. It happened that just recently though Jim Goldstein announced a blog project asking his readers to write a blog post with his or hers favorite images everyones favorite and submit the post to his project. As this is surely a fun project and therefore I decided to split this post into two parts, one for the images and one with the summary which will come up later. More information about the project you find on Jim’s blog.
