A Blue Moment

in finland •  last year

I had to go to the supermarket again. I went out quite soon after sunset. The sun set at 15:23 today. This was taken half an hour later. Because the sun is so low even at midday at this time of the year, it takes the sun a long time to set (and rise). The sun does not get higher than about five degrees above the horizon even at midday.

Taken at about four pm.

Presidential elections are coming up soon.

They've put up the stand for the election signs of each candidate already. The first round will be held on January 28. More about the candidates and the elections later.

The sky is still rather light blue.

When I got to the supermarket I noticed that I had forgotten my wallet. I had to walk back home to get it. I came back later by car and did my shopping.

Well thank you!

The worst thing is to forget your wallet and remember it in the middle of the Road i hate this situation

Fortunately, we don't live very far from the supermarket.

Wow, sunset at 15:23...

Yeah, thanks. :) According to polls, the result on the elections is overwhelmingly likely to be that the current president Sauli Niinistö will be elected for a second six-year term.

I see, I hope he is not one of your least favorite guys? :)

But in the worst case, you can just get into the sauna! I was in Finland a few months ago and did the sauna thing, I think there is no difficulty in life I can't get over after entering a Finnish sauna 👌

Somewhere in the geographical Europe! ;)

I've had a Finnish girlfriend, that's why I like the country and it's people. The city of Helsinki feels like a friend who is normally cold and reserved, but once you get closer, you see that she is actually pretty nice and warm!

yay!! this is so bad XD
