Kalajoki, Finland - Golden sand dunes and magic midnight sun

Kalajoki's golden sand dunes and magic midnight sun is really something to experience: strong yellow light and dark blue clouds (3rd July 2016). Strolled along the shoreline in the late evening and enjoyed the incredible change from daytime in the nature of the light. The sun took on a yellow colour - almost like during sunrise or sunset - and everything around me bathed in an unimaginably warm, bright light.

Moose grazing in Finland

Came upon these bull moose grazing on a field of rapeseed in southwest Finland (July 2016) - kings of the forest. They usually shelter in dense forest during the daytime, feeding on forest plants. These mighty animals are easiest to spot when they occasionally venture out of the trees to graze on marshes, meadows and fields around dawn and dusk.

In the small store Metsäkylän Kyllkäkup in the village Metsäkylä, Metsakyla, near the town Taivalkoski, in the northern Finland, I got in contact with a local person. We started to talk about the ongoing World Championship in football in Brazil (July 2014), but after a while our conversation switched over to a even more serious subject: Finnish war history. Eagerly he startet to tell me about dramatic events during the Second World War deep in the forest just outside his home. He said: this was the part of the history few Finnish know about or wantet to forget. What happened here in the middle of nowhere?
