187 888 Lakes / 187 888 Lagos / 187 888 Lacs / 187 888 Lagos

In English:

There are 187 888 lakes in Finland according to Wikipedia.

When photographing around my country, I started to take photos also from lakes. These photos show lakes from the West to the East, from the South to the North. Time range varies from 2004 to 2010. Cameras I have been using are: Panasonic Lumix DMC FX7 from 2004 (5.0megapixels), Panasonic Lumix DMC LX-1 from 2006 (8.3 megapixels) and Nikon D300 from 2008 (12.3 megapixels). Thus the quality of photos may vary if You wonder some photos.

Quite many photos I have been taken in the early morning, because my trips start early. Lack of sunshine in some photos “annoys” me, but it is understandable. My set of photos I start with two photos from the North and with that I mean those photos are far beyond the Polar Circle. The first photo shows our coffee break. In the North those “drivers’ resting-places” are not luxury, but anyway, they are useful. Also if we think that driving hours and hours who needs to sit? The second photo shows Lake Inari (1043 km² / 402 mi²). It is quite big as my photo reveals with 3000 islands on it. This post has been waiting 4 years to be published.I hope that You enjoy my photos.

En español:

Hay 187 888 lagos en Finlandia, según Wikipedia.

Al fotografiar alrededor de mi país, empecé a tomar fotos también de los lagos. Estas fotos Vos muestran lagos del este al oeste, del sur al Norte. Margen de tiempo varía de 2004 a 2010. Cámaras que han estado utilizando son: Panasonic Lumix DMC FX7 a partir de 2004 (5.0megapixels), Panasonic Lumix DMC LX-1 a partir de 2006 (8,3 megapíxeles) y Nikon D300 a partir de 2008 (12,3 megapíxeles). Así, la calidad de las fotos puede variar si se preguntan cuando miran algunas fotos.

Muy muchas fotos he tomado por la mañana temprano, porque mis viajes empezan temprano. La falta de sol en algunas fotos “me molesta” , pero es comprensible. Mi serie de fotos empezo con dos fotos desde el norte y con esto quiero decir que esas fotos son mucho más allá del Círculo Polar. La primera foto Vos muestra la pausa del café. En el norte los ” los lugares para tomar café para los conductores “no son de lujo, pero de todos modos, son útiles. Además, si pensamos despues al manejar en carro horas y horas quién necesita estar sentado? La segunda foto Vos muestra el Lago Inari (1043 km ² / 402 mi ²). Es bastante grande como mi foto revela con 3000 islas en él. Este post ha estado esperando 4 años de publicación.

Espero que le gusten mis fotos.

En français:

Il ya 187 888 lacs en Finlande selon Wikipedia.

Lorsque j’ai photographié autour de mon pays, j’ai commencé à prendre des photos aussi des lacs. Ces photos Vous montrent les lacs de l’Ouest vers l’Est, du Sud vers le Nord. Plage de temps varie de 2004 à 2010. Appareils photo que j’utilise sont: Panasonic Lumix DMC FX7 à partir de 2004 (5.0 mégapixels), Panasonic Lumix DMC LX-1 à partir de 2006 (8,3 mégapixels) et Nikon D300 à partir de 2008 (12,3 mégapixels). Ainsi, la qualité des photos peut varier si vous vous demandez des photos.

Nombreuses photos que j’ai prises tôt le matin, parce que mes voyages commencent tôt. Le manque de soleil en quelques photos “me gênen”, mais il est compréhensible. Ma série de photos je commence avec deux photos du Nord et avec qui je veux dire ces photos sont bien au-delà du cercle polaire. La première photo montre une de notre pause-café. Dans le Nord les “les lieux d’arrêt pour les conducteurs” ne sont pas de luxe, mais de toute façon, ils sont utiles. Aussi, si nous pensons après les heures et les heures de conduit qui ont besoin de s’asseoir? La deuxième photo montre le Lac Inari (1043 km ² / 402 mi ²). Il est assez grand comme ma photo révèle avec 3000 îles sur elle. Ce message a été attendent 4 ans de publication.

J’espère que vous aimez mes photos.

Em Português:

Há 187 888 lagos na Finlândia acordo com a Wikipedia.

Ao fotografar em volta do meu país, eu comecei a fotografar também de lagos. Estas fotos mostram lagos do oeste para o leste, a partir do Sul para o Norte. Câmeras que eu tenho usado são: Panasonic Lumix DMC FX7 de 2004 (5.0megapixels), a Panasonic Lumix DMC LX-1 a partir de 2006 (8,3 megapixels) e Nikon D300 a partir de 2008 (12.3 megapixels). Assim, a qualidade das fotos pode variar Se alguém se perguntar algumas fotos.

Bastante muitas fotos eu foram tomadas na madrugada, porque minhas viagens começavam cedo. A falta de luz do sol em algumas fotos “irrita” me, mas é compreensível. Meu conjunto de fotos, eu começo com duas fotos do Norte e com isso eu quero dizer que as fotos estão muito além do Círculo Polar. A primeira foto mostra para você o nossa pausa para o café. No Norte os “lugares de descanso dos motoristas” não são de luxo, mas de qualquer maneira, eles são úteis. Também, se pensarmos que as horas e horas de condução e horas que necessita se sentar? A segunda foto mostra o Lago de Inari (1043 km ² / 402 km ²). É bastante grande como a minha foto revela com 3000 ilhas nele. Este post foi esperar 4 anos para ser publicado.

Eu espero que você curte minhas fotos.

  3. Ooo … There’s a Klepper boat in the second picture🙂 And there are 2 pictures taken in Koli, aren’t there?

    I don’t know how anyone living in Finland can do anything else but take photos of its numerous lakes – they are so beautiful in so many different ways! Thank you for this pleasure!

  6. Beautiful! Very much like Minnesota, but we are only “land of 10,000 lakes”.

    Comment by Bondseye — July 10, 2014 @ 12:31 | Reply

    • Hi Lisa.

      Thank You. Well 10000 lakes is big amount. We both have hard task to shoot photos from every lake.🙂 Minnesota was very popular place when the main amount of Finns left Finland between 1864-1914. Maybe they found its landscapes similar to Finland. When I was young and worked for Finnair, I remember very well when there were direct charter flights from Duluth to Helsinki.

      Have a wonderful day!

      I love always comparisons. There are so many beautiful places in our world which earn to be presented. Minnesota and other places were popular among Finnish immigrants. Did You know that for example the Gateway Arch in St. Louis was designed by the Finn? Wikipedia offers great info:

  23. Absolutely wonderful! These lakes are simply gorgeous. In general Finland and its nature, its colours, its huge areas and wide heavens are so beautiful, but water makes it still much more impressive. There is such a silence and peace …
    Matti, I love these reflections which one can discover on some of your pictures. Somestimes the rocks of a small island, sometimes the shadow of trees. And I really admire how you “caught” the reflections of the white clouds in the water! Stunning! And – well I smiled a bit when I scrolled down and looked at your photo with this nice windmill and the friendly smiling brown sheep. I learnt from the commentaries above that you obviously had a familiy meeting at that time. I hope you enjoyed it! Lovely place to meet!

    So many lakes – and the lake Inari really looks like an ocean!
    Great!

    Have a nice weekend! – Michèle

      Oh my… what comment! Thank You. Every summer our family changes places for annual meeting. In 2016 our family book will be published and it will contain about 1500 pages. Different branches of our family have passed DNA-tests. Curiously my branch of family was exception and it pointed to Southern Europe. This maybe reason why I love French, Spanish and Portuguese – who knows.🙂

      Happy weekend!

      • A familiy book to be published? And 1,500 pages? Wow! How long have you and/or your family already worked on it? It doesn’t sound easy to me to check descent and genealogy worldwide or to have these DNA-tests done by all members in question.
        Certainly your explanation is quite correct regarding your obvious love (and talent) for Southern European languages.🙂

        • Hi Michèle.

          Our family has hired a genealogist who has been working about six years. The chairman of our family decided that from every branch, one representative must be DNA tested. I was selected as a representative of my branch. BTW, in our family meeting we had about 100 family members.

          Thank You for Your interest.
          Have a nice day!

    Comment by chrissiedixie — July 13, 2014 @ 13:27 | Reply

    • Hi Chrissie.

      Thank You commenting and asking the question. Well, generally not so much. For example just today we hiked in woods, there were only few mosquitos and we did not have any repellent. some years in Lapland (Northern part of Finland) there have been.

      Happy Sunday!

  34. Moi!
    I know that there are many lakes which are very beautiful in your country.
    I can imagine that I join wonderful coffee time with you both.
    And then, we will talk about the nature on the earth.
    But I can’t speak English fluently, so I must learn English till we meet. ha ha.
    Surface of lakes are like a mirror. 
    I imagined another world in the mirror. It is different from the world we live.
    If I look at your beautiful photos, I will be able to create a story in my head like a writer of fairy tales.
    You can actually see the beautiful scenery, I envy you!!
    Thank you for the beautiful view this time.

    • Hi Tokeloshe.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. I am still using D300 and I bought it in 2008. I have never used tripod. In this camera I love its rapidity to be ready faster than man can imagine. I have an old post which photos I took thru the train windows. The speed of train was 99mi/h. Here is the link:

      You chose wonderful photo.

      Nikon D810.

  39. The animated cartoon which it would be what and many splendid photographs, and was televised in Japan remembered “Katori of the ranch”. It is a tree and an image of the hall that the second piece turned red from the last to be the most splendid, and other photographs stir admiration to my Finland.
    I used Lumix, too. I use Fuji now.
