Season of Summer Light
Week 27, Wednesday - Rainy days
"It's been cold and rainy weather for couple of days and not like typical summer weather. In Finland this means temperatures from 10 to 15 Celsius (50-60 on a Fahrenheit scale) and couple of millimeters of water on an average rainy day. It's too cold and wet to go outside, so we need to stay in and find something else to do. So because of weather we went to local market square and got some peas to Aura. [...]"

I love this series Toni...such wonderful and creative images. This last one is fantastic.

Just a quick shot testing out my new Sigma 60/2.8. This lens is incredibly good for the price. Razor sharp, great contrast and color.

Another shot from the 60/2.8. After looking more closely, this is up there with the sharpest lenses I've ever used: The Olympus 75/1.8, the Canon 100/2.8L IS, etc.

Love the mood in this shot, Kalainen- what did you shoot it with?

Season of Summer Light
Week 26, Saturday - Warm darkness
"In the middle of the summer night, far away from a noisy world and surrounded only by the forest, me and my brother sit in a pitch black sauna with approximately 90 degrees of Celsius (190 degrees at Fahrenheit scale). It's so dark we can hardly see our faces and the only light we have is reflection of a sunset that comes from the lake and through the window. There are no distracting noises, only a smooth buzz that comes from the stove while it heats up the room. This sauna is now serving the third generation and there is no modern conveniences like electric light in it. And while there is an electric sauna in almost every home in Finland, it's not easy to find sauna like this; old and in its original form with all odd details from yesteryears. To find it, you need to depart from beaten paths and find your way through to trails that are not marked in any maps. [...]"

Thanks for the kind words, Solarwar! I took that shot in a Finnish summer cottage which belongs to family. The Sauna in the picture is really small and just used the standard kit lens (SEL 18-55) at 18mm and sticthed it from three images (25sec exposures with f/7.1). Because of humid/warmth I took the shots before we threw any water on a stove. After the shots I brought my Nex-5N outside and we began throwing water..

Season of Summer Light
Week 27, Saturday - Watching the clouds go by
"For couple of recent days the weather has been same as before, which means we are waiting for summer to come back. Luckily it doesn't affect Aura in any way and she is as eager as always for small trips. Couple of days ago we all together went the lake shore just to hang around and see if water is still cold. It's a pretty big lake which means it warms up quite slowly - a fact that we verified by reading +15 degrees of Celsius (60 degrees at Fahrenheit scale) from the water temperature sign. [...]"

Great stuff as always Taran!









Season of Summer Light
Week 28, Wednesday - Strawberries
"Beginning of this season I told you about the Finns obsession for the ice-cream in summer. Ice-cream isn't the only thing we connect with summer - another one is strawberries which are bought from the market square, eaten and also stuffed in freezers for the winter. Strawberries are essential for summer and no self-respectful Finn will go about without getting some of them. I should also add that they are very healthy with a nice amount of C-vitamin in them. Like others we also plan to buy them and we've been speaking about 5 kg (most of them will go to freezer and we'll be eating them along winter). But the thing is our freezer is currently too full which means I need to shape up and start eating all the stuff we've put into it. Hah, feels like work when you actually have to do it.. [...]"

FE55 with NEX7
This body really show me how crazy the FE55 capable of. The zoom in detail simply looks magic to my eye.
The light is harsh and boring at noon in Oregon, hence BW

Zhangyue-
Nice landscapes. I am guessing these are from Crater Lake?
It may just be my monitor, but I do notice a bit of patchiness in the sky gradients.

Here are a couple from around Haeundae. Sigma 30 and Nikon 200/4 ais.

Season of Summer Light
Week 28, Saturday - Splash!!
"Lately I've been fascinated by the idea that I could get that summer light very literally in my pictures by shooting in back light scenarios and let the light bounce inside the lens causing haze and sun flares in final pictures. If one goes by the textbook it's 'against the rules', but in my book the imperfections and happy accidents created by this technique adds something very special to pictures - an element of being there, one might say.
