    • Hi Deb.

      Thank You for Your kind words. It is quite an experience for us to live beside of the lake (Saimaa). Balconies are practical, because they have glasses which make it possible to stay in them until the winter comes.

      Have a great week-end!

  13. Your balcony is perfectly located for capturing sunsets. The colors in the sky are fantastic, and I like the way you have also captured the reflection of the color in the water of the lake as well. All of these photos are gorgeous.

    • Hi George.

      That is right. Its direction is to the South and to the West. These photos are to the West. The old wisdom is yet true today when shooting photos: “to be at right place at right time”.

      Happy weekend!

    • Hello Tiny lessons blog.

      Thank You. For the first time, it was my wife who told to me when returning to home from German language courses, that there is gorgeous sunset. So we went immediately to our balcony and so I shot first sunset photos.

      Happy week-end!

    Comment by Barob7 — October 19, 2013 @ 21:45 | Reply

    • Hi Barob7.

      Thank You praising my photos. I think that better results are possible only by using SLR (single-lens reflex) camera. My camera is from the year 2008 Nikon D300 (DX format digital single-lens reflex camera). Its lens is excellent and it is fast. I have had taken nice photos from a fast moving train when returning to home after shooting photos from world’ biggest snow castle.

      Here are those photos:

    • Hola Betunada.

      Vivo en 61°41′15″N! Well, generally speaking Mikkeli is “South” to see them. Occasionally they have been seen, but not me. When travelling to the Arctic Circle and to the North of it in Winter is possible to see them often, I think.

      Thank You for Your kind comment.

  33. Good morning in Finland, yesterday I looked at your outstanding and toucing pictures, but I didn’t have time to answer that’s why I came back to tell you about my impressions. Did you really not change the colours? I wish you more such amazing long nights this year. Very best regards Martina

    • Hi Martina.

      All these photos are original, no color changes. In 2013, I was lucky to shoot photos from gorgeous sunsets. Maybe You remember my post presenting Koli national park where my wife showed Youga on its top.

      Happy Friday.

      • Sorry, I’m a bit late to answer because I was away. Yes, I remember and I realize that I’m a little bit envious of the views you have from your balcony.
        My very best regards Martina

        • Hi Martina.

          No problems; every one of us have our own rushes. Well, what comes to the view from our balcony, I can say that we love it. The Lake Saimaa is only 20 meters from our balcony and the house itself about 10 meters. During summer small ships, boats and motor boats pass to Mikkeli and from it. In Mikkeli there is marina / port.

          I am not sure, if You have seen photos from our house, but here You have:

          Walking on frozen lake.

          As You see in photos, the place is fantastic. BTW, new houses are built near to us and they will, be ready in 2015/2016. Welcome to move to Mikkeli.🙂

          Have a great day!

            • Hello Martina.

              So nice to read it. We lived on countryside having our own house with small garden facing to the pine woods nearly twenty years. Sometimes man must change landscape and this small town is very active having excellent road connections to everywhere in Finland.

              Happy Monday.
