Lake 1 Lake 2 Lake 3 The photographs were taken at lake Vaakkoi on October 15th. It started snowing today. In the morning the depth of snow was 4 cm, now it is 8 cm. I commuted by bicycle, and there was quite strong headwind on the way home. The new snow on top of ice made road conditions challenging. The more I use the new winter tires on snow and ice, the more I like them. Having 240 studs in a tire is not overkill. (Posting title is from the song Alexander by I Said Yes.) Posted by Juha...

Lake 1 Lake 2 Lake 3 The photographs were taken at Vaakkoi on October 19th. I commuted by bicycle today. The road conditions were bad on many places, and it took over an hour both in the morning and in the afternoon. In some places I had to walk the bicycle. In all I got 2 1/2 hours of exercise.

Fog 1 Fog 2 Fog 3 Fog 4 The photographs were taken at Vaakkoi on October 19th. The weather is warming up. In the morning we had -8 °C, for the afternoon the forecast promises -2 °C. I went for a walk and took photographs of the snowy landscape. For the next week the forecast promises even warmer weather, up to +5 °C, and some rain. It won't be especially pleasant for commuting by bicycle, but I'll try anyway. So far this year I have got 5793 km riding the bicycle. (Posting title is from the...

Lake 1 Lake 2 The photographs were taken at Niihama outdoor area in Tampere on September 9th. It starts to be the time of the year when the number of people commuting by bicycle starts to decrease. On the other hand, some people have already installed studded winter tires to the bicycle, and are thus prepared for the slippery roads.

Lake 1 Lake 2 Lake 3 The photographs were taken by lake Saaren-Musta at Vaakkoi on August 19th. What can one say about the craziness that is rampant in the world? There was a news item about a Finn serving in British Army who was arrested for neo-Nazi activity. Where do these people come from? Are all Finns potential terrorists?

View 1 View 2 View 3 The photographs were taken at Myllyjärvi south of Luukki on December 26th. Today I left the bicycle at home. We got new snow, but it is melting away.

Sand 1 Sand 2 Sand 3 Sand 4 The photographs were taken at lake Hiisijärvi, which is an interesting place to visit because of the white sand dunes. I wrote another poem about Trump, or tried at least. I love dark money, building golden towers, and admire myself in the mirrors. Poisoning air, earth and water I set the world on fire. Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Lake 1 Lake 2 The photographs were taken in Luukki on May 1st. Today I thought about #covfefe. Perhaps it means уходить in Russian? So far this year I have got 2,523 km riding the bicycle, and 653 km since the beginning of May. (Posting title is from the poem Angellica’s Lament by Aphra Behn.)

Lake 1 Lake 2 The photographs were taken on August 14th at Sipoonkorpi National Park. Today I walked for almost three hours at Niihama in Tampere, walking through the nature protection area and enjoying the lakeside views. It was raining, and few people were outside. On the lake I saw and heard two women in canoes. They discussed the beauty of all the shades of gray in the landscape. (Posting title is from the poem Language is her caravan by Caleb Klaces.)

Meiko 1 Meiko 2 Meiko 3 The photographs were taken at Meiko on October 20th. In three days I have got over six hours of exercise riding the bicycle. This morning the road conditions were challenging, because the packed snow was melting into slush. I had to walk the bicycle part of the way, and it took 1 hour 10 minutes to get to work. In the afternoon it was better, just one hour. (Posting title is from the poem The challenge: to start by Anna Moschovakis.) Posted by Juha Haataja at...

Lake 1 Lake 2 The photographs were taken at Meiko on October 20th. I commuted by bicycle today. The snow has melted away, but in many places there is lots of gravel on top of asphalt. So far this year I have got 5,929 km riding the bicycle. (Posting title is from the poem The Star-splitter by Robert Frost.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Mukavalla asuinalueellamme oli myös muutama järvi, joista suurimmassa asusteli alligaattoreita.

Mainelaisessa järvessä, Black Lakessa jokin syö sukeltajasta puolet ja se on aika huono juttu, joten sheriffi Hank (Brendan Gleeson) ja riistanvartija Jack (Bill Pullman) ryhtyvät selvittämään mikä se jokin on. Avukseen ja haitakseen he tänne syrjäseudulle saavat suurkaupungin herkkähipiäisen paleontologi Kellyn (Bridget Fonda) ja seikkailuhenkisen mytologian professori Hectorin (Oliver Platt), mikä tietenkin aiheuttaa runsaasti humoristista naljailua ns. kala kuivalla...

Arde arvioi -

Voimalaitoksen vanhoihin tiloihin on avautunut varsin äskettäin Raleighissa uusi panimoravintola Tobacco Road, joka ehkä teettää vielä oluensa muualla. Hyvin äänekäs sporttibaari, ei millään tavalla miellyttävä. Kokeilin Cloudin kanssa "yhteistyössä" tehtyä huna-IPAa, 6,8%. Varsin samea, mallasta, pähkinää, hieman makeutta. Pehmeää, mutta ei yllättäen hunajaa erityisemmin. Katkeruutta ripaus. Raleigh (NC), Tobacco Road, 19.8.2017.

Lake 1 Lake 2 The photographs were taken in Luukki on September 23rd. I have got 5,247 km riding the bicycle this year. The new waterproof coat seems to be excellent. There is a front pocket, excellent for storing keys, and the light yellow color with reflective stripes is much better than the dark red of the old one, which wasn't so good during the dark season. I hope the coat is at least as durable as the old one, which lasted three years. (Posting title is from the poem That Strait-Jacket...

Lake 1 Lake 2 Lake 3 Lake 4 The photographs were taken in Nuuksio on December 10th. Yesterday I walked for two hours at lake Myllyjärvi, south of Luukki. Today I went to Nuuksio, walking a route that I hadn't explored since last spring. I got a bit lost, and that was good. (Posting title is from the poem Poetry Is a Sickness by Ed Bok Lee.)

Lake 1 Lake 2 Lake 3 The photographs were taken at lake Pitkäjärvi in Velskola on December 6th. It is raining today. So far this week I have got ten hours of exercise, eight of them riding the bicycle. Yesterday I walked for two hours at Ketunkorpi in Luukki. It was quiet. Update: I realized I had used the same title in a posting on April 24th, 2016 . Well, I think it is fine enough to be used twice. (Posting title is from the poem EGG by Brian Swann.)

Lake 1 Lake 2 The photographs were taken at lake Kattilajärvi in Nuuksio on December 6th. Today may be a less rainy day than yesterday, but the weather forecast doesn't provide much hope for sunshine. Well, one can still go for a walk and take photographs.

Blue The photograph was taken at lake Mustalampi south of Luukki on December 26th. It started to snow today. During the night we may get 5-8 cm of snow, which means that commuting by bicycle could be challenging tomorrow. (Posting title is from the poem Home Burial by Robert Frost.)

View 1 View 2 View 3 View 4 The photographs were taken at lake Bodom on December 25th. This morning there was 10 m/s headwind in the morning, and 10 m/s backwind in the afternoon. Not bad - sometimes the wind has changed so that there has been headwind both ways. (Posting title is from the poem Program for The Dance by Ed Roberson.)

Spring The photograph was taken on April 22nd. One can't help wondering about Trump. You could say that he is like a small child who whines about everything, except that the children I have known are much better behaved. Also, one should not think about him as a child, because he is extremely dangerous. Nothing is for him too perilous, too hazardous, too risky, or too unsafe. Also, not to forget, he is treacherous, and slippery like an eel. (Posting title is from the poem The Third Hour of the...

Lake 1 Lake 2 Lake 3 Lake 4 The photographs were taken at Velskola on April 18th. Last week I got 14 hours of exercise. I should take a rest day, but the weather forecast promises rather nice weather for commuting by bicycle.

This ambient journey visits Leppävesi lake and Saunalahti bay accompanied by Karoliina Salminen's music.Finnish lake and sea views are just beautiful, and in this episode we managed to capture a couple of impressive moments by the water front. These views are especially stunning when enjoyed in high definition. Also Karoliina's music requires good stereo sound reproduction to reveal all its

Lake 1 Lake 2 The photographs were taken on April 29th at Vaakkoi. This morning I walked for over two hours, starting from Hindsby at Sipoonkorpi National Park. There were plenty of spring flowers to enjoy. However, I forgot the LX100 camera at home, so I had to use the iPhone for taking photographs. After a while I got used to it, even though I was missing the convenient controls and the wide-angle view. I watched the movie Django Unchained. Something was quite familiar, and it took a while...

Fog 1 Fog 2 Fog 3 The photographs were taken on January 28th in Nuuksio. This morning I walked for 2 h 20 min in the north parts of Sipoonkorpi National Park. My car was the only one at the parking place near Västerhov. I walked to lake Kantorsträsk, and it was somewhat disappointing to find out that a lot of forestry work had been done north of the lake, of the clearcutting type. The landscape had changed a lot, and I got somewhat lost, but that turned out to be a fine thing as I found new...
