Here’s a…feathered post dedicated to some of the birds one gets to see on Suomenlinna island, which is located in the Gulf of Finland, just 15 minutes from the port of Helsinki.
I recently visited the Finnish capital and I had the chance to walk around this beautiful place and take a peek at some bird species I’ve never seen before.
If you’re curious, here are some of them:
On one of the few sunny days of these summer, we headed to a small village nearby.
Walking under such an amazing sky and looking at the distant horizon was a real pleasure. The fluffy clouds felt almost palpable and the blue colour was infinite.
That day we had the chance to relax from top to…bottom! Walking barefoot on a trail made of different natural materials was a really refreshing experience. It helped us “switch off”, calm down and enjoy the surroundings.
I haven’t posted anything for a month, but I finally had this flash of inspiration – and some really good photos – so, it was about time!
This time, it’s all about the sky and its ever-changing moods and colours.
I was lucky enough to stay in a room with a biiig window, so I could contemplate the amazing palette that would be revealed up in the sky. Sometimes the colours would be changing from minute to minute, then they would blend into each other or they would just fade into the twilight. All in all, it is pure beauty.
So, keep your heeeead up!
Living in Lietuva, the “Rain Country”, I’m already used to unexpected showers. They would usually spoil a fine warm day and make me regret that I don’t have my umbrela with me. Still, thanks to these unexpected and not always welcome rainy interludes, the whole town has turned into a green paradise!
Here is the proof 🙂
Featuring: a duckie.
White, soft sand. Clear, sunny sky. Green land. Wind through my hair. Happiness.
Well, this place is nothing like what you would expect to see in Lithuania.
Reborn. Colourful. Splendid.
Here’s some sweet inspiration..
Craving for Sun.
This is how I would describe my current wish with 3 words.
Observing and experiencing the sequence of the 4 seasons is definitely a privilege and I thank Lithuania for all the pure beauty that I have witnessed all around.
Still, I cannot deny that I have missed a clear sky, a bright morning, a warm afternoon quite many times during these past months. Sun is in my genes anyhow!
So, this is a post dedicated to this yellow, hot, round god.
All these photos, taken at different times of day, are children of the Sun.

Walking and looking around, you can see some signs of nature “waking up”.
The colours, the smells, the sounds are slowly, but steadily changing.
It is such a beautiful process to observe.
Let us hope that the blossoms will turn into flowers soon!
Fresh snow. Clean atmosphere. Perfect winter day.
Jau saulutė nebešildo,
Jau ir vėjas šaltas šaltas,
Jau kiekvienas sodo krūmas
Kaip gulbelė – baltas baltas.
Liana, thanks for the great title.
Katya, thanks for the great company.
