This years best sunset over a graceful river

I've been confined to my flat due to a knee accident. This means most of my passion for fly-fishing and exercising is "suppressed". :( Fortunately, this gave me a little time to revisit some photos that I took this year, but had no time to check and share. Here is one from a magical sunset over a very unique river. I have seen many sunsets and sunrises there, but at this sunset just everything came out right. It was summer, long days and short light "nights".  There were also well balanced lights and brilliant reflections of color. Last, but not least, I was there. :) I shoot there many times, but this time persistence (read stubbornness) paid off. I hope you enjoy the photo (click for larger view):

Thousand lakes region photos

I spent a week enjoying the unusually hot Finnish summer at the lakeside. At the beginning, I tried fly-fishing in some beautiful rivers (see photos). Eventually, I gave in, as the water temperature reached 27C. Trout were dying lack of oxygen. I changed my plans and headed a bit more North to keep myself cool in the lakes and forests. Mikkeli also provided plenty of things to see and enjoy. It was a great vacation, regardless of bad luck with fishing.
In this gallery you may see some photos from this trip or watch here as slideshow.
