Sunsetting over Helsinki Harbour – November, 2011
As I was driving home tonight a flock of Brent geese flew through the sunset. In a few days they will be heading north to the Baltic and Siberia, foretelling of the advance of winter. The visual image of mare’s tails across the red-gold glow had me thinking of the importance of reading the sky on my walking and canoeing trips and also in my photography. Here is a small collection of two-third sky landscapes.

I notice that these photographs have all been taken during the golden hours of dawn and dusk.
As an outdoor person, many of my memories have been made in the outdoors. Looking back over images transports me to the emotions of the time.
By looking at other people’s captured memories, I can relate to my own experiences and once again get in touch with the ‘feelings’ aspects of being in the outdoors.
