HDR in Helsinki: Cottage by Sunset

Although Helsinki is a big city it has some old cottages. One is located at Seurasaari island area by the shores of the sea. I think some people live there or at least have lived in the past. If I recall correctly a small power line used to connect the cottage to the grid. Regardless, me and Tommi happened to be there by sunset and with some nice clouds in the sky. Nobody rushed out to drive us away so we shot a serie of photos by the cottage. Have to say we were there at the most appropriate time!

    It is weird what i will say or at least it is a feeling but by watching this picture i see a symbiosis between the house, the sky and the ground so; somehow for me it is really peacefull to see this picture. I can’t really explain that better (english is not my mother thong).

      Glad to hear that you get good feelings from looking at it :) And don’t worry, English is not my mother language either so we are in the same boat.
