I finally edited the photos I took today, and I'm going to post them all.
My hunt for the perfect photo took longer than I anticipated, and in the end I didn't get one photo, but a steemboatload of excellent photos!
It all started when I departed from the gym today morning, at 10:45. I was hungry as @omsoc had pushed me to all my limits, and I was so exhausted I almost dropped dead twice or three times at the gym. (Well I can exaggerate a bit can't I, for the story's sake? No?)
After having a quick snack I drove to Orimattila, and started pondering what I should photograph. I had no idea.
So I took a free coffee from a nearby R-kioski as I had a 5th coffee for free card filled with stamps. Then I hopped into the car and started driving aimlessly around the countryside still wondering what to shoot.
Driving the gravel road.
I drove all the time more narrow gravel roads, until I stopped. I found some flowers.
I bet Vera knows what flower this is. She's sleeping, can't ask.
lupines are really pretty
Fireweed (Chamaenerion angustifolium)
Then I drove on until I got to a place called Terriniemi.
Shot from a bridge.
The above photo demonstrates reverse bokeh. I'll leave it for the class to figure it out.
When I left after taking the photo of the ponies, my car started rattling and I thought my backpipe had fallen. After a quick inspection I found it wasn't, there was just a pebble in the break shield.
...the road goes on...
...but there is still time to smell the flowers...
...while smelling the flowers I also shot a panorama.
Then I took a detour...
...I noticed these birds, and took a photo...
...but a huge truck pushed me to continue... Straight into a dead-end. I had driven into someone's home yard. I had to wait for the truck to enter the yard before I could leave. :D
The bird photo is excellent though.
Then I drove on, and found myself in Pernaja, some 80 kilometers away from home.
The Pernaja Church is a medieval church built somewhere around 1410 and 1440.
The man himself. The statue is a copy of the original that was lost in the end of the Winter War.
Mikael Agricola was a Lutheran clergyman, the de-facto founder of literary Finnish and a prominent proponent of the Protestant Reformation in Sweden, including Finland, which was a Swedish territory at the time. He is often called the "father of literary Finnish".
I decided to paraphrase Wikipedia for expediency, as the time is already 1:36am and I'm still writing the post.
Ok, guys, I'm exhausted. I came home 7 hours later, and I brought you a whole photo-story instead of one photo. That's why it took so long to edit and write. Sorry about that! But I hope you liked it!
