Share my Snaps!





While I'm meant to be back, there will be no First of the Month Fiction this month due to another story I need to write and a total lack of direction and interest in getting back into routine. However I couldn't resist #Lifethisweek's theme of Share my Snaps!. 










Having just got back from magnificent Finland, I thought I'd share couple of teaser pics! Let me tell you, in Finland it's very hard not to love life!



 Finland is glorious outdoor adventures with endless sunrises and sunsets - as we went further north, it literally morphed from sunrise to sunset around midday, with no 'daytime' in between the two.

  17. Glad you're showing us something of your holidays! January is almost over, and I have the same, struggling back into a routing, but I have one good reason, my son from Holland came to visit for a week (last week). Keep in touch, and visit my All Seasons (photo)meme - link is open every Sunday through Wednesday 7pm at artworksfromjeshstg (dot) wordpress (dot) com. Hope to see you there!

  18. Since I am in a warm climate I can appreciate those cold snowy shots from afar- They look so pretty but give me the warm weather

  19. Lovely pics. I grew up in Sweden and have been to Findland a couple of times, and although I can appreciate how beautiful it looks, I'm not keen on the cold, wintery weather. But as a holiday destination, sure! It's the prolonged periods of hovering around in freezing darkness, not knowing when spring will arrive, that I can't cope with... #PointShoot

  28. Your first photo is incredible! Finland does look like an interesting country to visit, but I'm not sure about the 24 hours of daylight!

  29. Hi ...I am a little confused about the comment you left for Nature Notes meme on my blog, but welcome to Nature Notes and I enjoyed this post.. You said, "That flamingo’s been eating all the prawns! Lovely!" .......Michelle

    1. There was a photo of a flamingo in the montage - and it's colour was dark, which means it's been eating a lot of prawns, apparently. Was the montage an ad? I thought t was part of your pictures. What a dummy if it was an ad - sorry!

      Delete
    2. Oh gosh..I am so sorry Lydia...The montage is a photo of each blogger's Nature Notes post and one of your photos is up now in this week's montage...Funny as my daughter just asked me why Flamingos are pink..LOL... Sorry about that....Hope you will link in again...Michelle

  30. Your pictures are gorgeous! It is hard to resist those sunsets! I am not a fan of cold weather but visiting Finland during winter seems like the way to go. It is like a fairy tale in there during that season. #TPThursday

  33. I really like the look of those snow covered roofed cabins in their winter setting. Would not like the very short daylight, but I realize that is what happens way north at this time of the year. #TheWeeklyPostcard

  34. I never liked cold, but I have to say that I miss snow once in a while. Your photos look great!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Lovely pictures. Finland looks like a beautiful place but it must be strange to have practically no daylight.

  36. All the heart eyes for those beautiful, Finland winter skies!! I can understand why winter would be tiring most of the time, but at least it comes with some really beautiful skies from time to time. ;) Beautiful photos! #TheWeeklyPostcard

  38. Oh that looks so magical! I can't seem to find the #fortheloveofBLOG badge for the link up on your site lovely if you can pop it on :) x

    1. The badges don't work - there's some coding error/incompatibility. I can take a photo but it won't link back (thus the link back in text).
