Season's Greetings and Best Wishes for 2015!

One of the good things about autumn in Finland is that it gets dark again, while not being too cold yet. This allows one to go outside in the middle of the night and do some stargazing without freezing within a few minutes. In addition, solar activity has been high in the past few days, which leads to some wonderful aurora displays. While I did not manage to capture the aurora this time, I did take a picture of the moon which you can see here below.

Season's greetings and best wishes for 2014!


It's been a while...

... since I've written something on my blog here. Things have been hectic, new, fascinating, frustrating, scary and much more all at the same time - but mostly very busy. 

Too much to do

Last weekend, we celebrated Midsummer in Finland. It's one of those highlights in a Finnish calendar year, but we missed it for many years in a row due mostly to work related travel. This year was different. Midsummer is the celebration of the summer solstice, and marks the day with the longest period of daylight. Where we are, this is 24 hours - the sun never sets. We spent the day in a typical Finnish manner: get out, enjoy nature, the quietness, family, with food and drinks.
