Finally at home! Just came home from another town where I spent a few hours meeting my friends and taking pictures. Yes! New photos after a long time...think I took my latest pics about a month ago! This city, Kotka, is a coastal town about 100km east of Helsinki and has a long history of shipping. This personal looking building is a maritime museum and only about a third of the building is shown in the picture. It´s huge! It´s possible to capture the whole building in certain places but I didn´t have time to do it this time but I have several versions of different angles. I had a nice and refreshing day, hope your day was nice too! Wishing everyone a wonderful week ❤❤❤


_alessandro_: Wow!!! Ancora una volta stupisci con questa straordinaria foto!!! Bellissima prospettiva e colori mozzafiato!!! Buona notte artista di strada!!!😘💯😍👌💟

_marisol: É così luminoso, nevvero? Potrebbe illuminare il tuo bagno!! Hahah!! Ma grazie tanto per le tue bellissime parole! Non so se sono un artista, ma io amo questo hobby fotografico, l'unico problema è la mancanza di tempo...forse più tardi avrò tempo in cui sarò una vecchia donna rugosa 😧😕😟

_marisol: Thanks a bunch Gloria! Hope you could see this astonishing building someday. Only 1/3 is shown in this it´s huge and illuminated throughout. It´s located in the harbor and from the opposite island you would get great pictures of the museum. Think I should try it!

charmychelle: Hola Mari, wonderful to have you back with new images, as always you have a great eye for detail and this museum has an intriguing design and colours! It’s a beautiful night shot, te felicito! Meanwhile I can’t believe that we now have a role reversal in the weather; you get the English weather and I get the Finnish! I live in one of the areas which has had the most snow and it’s quite remarkable, they say that it’s been 4 years since we last saw this much snow. I’m just enjoying it while it lasts because snow never sticks around for a long time here. Tonight is the coldest night -5/-6°C, but I know that that’s nothing for you as you’ve experienced -20+ temps! 😉 I’m doing ok thanks, my dad’s operation won’t be until late January now so at least he doesn’t have to spend Christmas and his birthday in hospital... Buenas noches y dulces sueños mi querida amiguita, mando saludos y besitos para ti y Sandra, nos vemos más tarde! ❄️☀️❄️

_marisol: Épaleeee Charmy! This museum is about one kilometer long, throughout illuminated. It looks astounding in the dark night but, unfortunately, you can capture the whole building either from the opposite side of the island or from an industrial area that is far behind the building...maybe I´ll try it someday. As for the roles you mentioned, the storm has struck here today, the storm called Ana...hehe, my lil sister´s first name. Most of the country has got enormous amount of snow but here in Helsinki it´s been raining and raining. My former hometown got a lot of snow, now it´s very slushy as the temp is raised up to +3, it´s +4 here in Helsinki and no raining anymore. We rarely have temperatures like -20 here on the coast but only 60-100km to north or north-east and it´s a different story, though the winters has been mostly warm rather than super cold, pretty often in January there´s a short cold period. Nice to hear that your dad is able to spend his birthday at home, from my heart I wish him all the best and lots of health ❤❤❤ Gracias mi querida amiguchita ❤❤ Te mando un gran paquetote de apurruños 💖 Te veo pronto! 🙋‍♀️

stefpics2: So bright and colourful and beautifully captured ! :)

Posted: 2017 Dec 12 6:34:34 PM

_marisol: What a pity that I couldn´t present this astonishing building as a whole, as big as it actually is. The length is about 1 km...illuminated throughout. There´s a few spots where you can capture, one of them is the island opposite the building, no can do! And the other one is an industrial are far behind the museum, I have no idea whether or not you can go there...with or without a smile haha. Thanks Stef! More stuff coming up from this day trip :)

_marisol: Btw Stef, you saw that light in the foreground??? Pretty much in the middle of the pic. It´s a lighthouse, it works like the real one round the clock. It´s damn cool and if I´d had a little more time I would have taken a pic of it using aperture f18 or f20 to get it captured in detail. Next time will try it...maybe after the New Year :)

stefpics2: 1 km ? That's pretty long. Looking forward to the lighthouse pic ! :):)

frank reynolds nh: love the photo. and feel your pain about the building being to big for the photo

Posted: 2017 Dec 13 1:10:36 AM

_marisol: Thanks. Yeah, it was a bit frustrating. I was using my 10mm wide-angle lens but yet I managed to capture only a piece of it. There's an island opposite the building, if I could get there, then no problem. Merry Christmas 🎄

_marisol: Jees, tuo se on mahtava rakennus. Voit mennä upeasti valaistua ramppia pitkin jopa katolle. Muutenkin Kotka on käymisen arvoinen jos ei ole aiemmin käynyt, etenkin puistot on kauniita, kansainvälisesti palkittuja. Ja tietty se merihenkisyys on kaikkialla läsnä. Kiittää!

laura andre: Glad you got to enjoy photography again. Especially with your talent, which shows again in this shot. Hope you have a great week as well Marisol 😊

_marisol: Thank you Laura for these encouraging and beautiful words. Much appreciated! Wish you a Merry Christmas 🎄🎄❤❤

puma.luca: Ciao Mari, come stai? Tutto bene? Quante piccole luci che ci sono, sembra un albero di natale!! Ahah scherzo! Non so come ci riesci ma trovi sempre l' equilibrio giusto delle luci. Bravissima!
