Water, mud, sunshine and no snow – kids are really enjoying spring! Today was a magnificent spring day and we had fun at the park. I think it shines through from the pics.

Winter is finally letting go – sun is starting to shine and nature is about to wake up. People are starting to smile. This is the best time of the year!
Iisa walked into our bedroom this morning when I was getting ready for work. I just couldn’t leave before I could get a few photo of her in her new dress. She was so proud of it and I think it shows in this photo.
For tech geeks:
I used my Nikkor 50/1.4 lens and the morning ambient light coming through the window on camera right.
There is one positive thing about the kids waking up early – you get to witness how beautiful the nature can be in the morning. This photo is taken after a cold night that apparently created a magnificent mist in the air and frost on all the trees and bushes. The most beautiful thing about it was that the light and the composition of the mist was changing constantly. I stood outside without gloves taking photos until I suddenly realized that I could barely feel my fingers. It really was a special morning! Another one of my favorites:
This photo has a totally different mood, even though it was taken at the same time.

Frida (the dog in the above picture) loved to jump at snowballs my daughter was throwing at her. I was really amazed how high a dog can jump. A few more pics: http://kansala.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Antti/2013-03-30+Jump/
For tech geeks:
This was a very quick ad-hoc photo session. I had my Sigma 18-50/2.8 lens attached and just fired away with it.
Morning sun hit my coffee cup with just poured coffee steaming in it. The steam was making magnificent figures. This is one of my favorite shots from the set.
