The sky rolls in and out on its journey

I'm not sure whether this photograph is worth posting. It is of course technically flawed, shot towards the sun, with glare wiping out a lot of the detail. And as the click wheel on the LX5 is stuck I was unable to change aperture from f/2.0 which resulted in overexposure.

I should switch from aperture priority to program mode (it isn't a good idea to use aperture priority if one isn't able to change the aperture, yes?), but I'm just too lazy to change any of the settings on the LX5.

However, I feel good when I look at this photograph.

Open, upturned, outstretched, uplifting him

Here are more photographs taken at Porkkala peninsula. I feel the call of the peninsula, but maybe I can resist for a while. But there is so much to be explored further...

I still have feelings of sore throat, and I have been somewhat tired during the last few days. But that may be due to lack of sleep. In any case, commuting by bicycle feels good; I wouldn't like to sit in a car or a bus when the weather is sunny like this.

To dance upon the air!

I got a sore throat today, but there were no other flu symptoms. Perhaps this is something minor. In any case, I commuted by bicycle, without feeling especially tired afterwards, so I guess I'm more or less ok.

These photographs were taken on April 19th at Porkkala peninsula.
