This Summer we made a trip to nearby Denmark. We spent a week in a cottage in Jylland by the North Sea, and a few days after that in beautiful sunny Copenhagen.
A series of photos I took this Easter near the centre of Tampere. Spring is about two weeks late this year, I’m hoping the snow melts soon!
This Christmas, there was no shortage of snow! Or books, for that matter. The top three in the above picture I’ve already finished, the encyclopaedia of Wine (Viini) will probably take some more time to wade through though, as will the bottle of fine Caol Ila single malt.
Happy New Year everyone, let’s hope 13 is a lucky number!
This morning was the last chance for over a century to witness Venus transiting the Sun.
I got up at 4:00 to make sure I got at least a few good shots. After cycling to a nearby golf course to get an unrestricted view of the Sun, which had just risen, I got a few good snaps there. I ended up getting the best photos in our front yard though, after the clouds had cleared.
Lessons learned: buy a better camera before December 2117. Here are a few photos of the 2012 Venus transit taken from Tampere, Finland with a Canon G7, using some AstroSolar film to filter sunlight.
