a place to rest by raido-ehwaz
a place to rest
In August, I was kayaking with a good friend of mine in the Ostrobothnian archipelago (western Finland) for five days. This was the evening view at our first tent site (a small, quiet island). We slept well that night (and actually, all nights).

This photo, and many others, is for sale on RedBubble:… Apart from prints, you can get photos on a number of different products, like mugs and phone cases. Also, feel free to just have a look through the photos I've put up there, of course - it's a bit of a smaller (better?) selection than I have on here.
we linger after sunset
until we let go, feather light,

wane into our darkest lifetimes, afloat,
above ground, floor, dirt, reality

an inner sensuality,
heavy bodies suspended

on rubber, straw, air,
or someone else's hair,

exhaling, sinking, slowly
into the comforting darkness of ourselves.

when i wake up, you're there.
i inhale, your skin

pulls me out into post-sunset
phantom sun light

and reality, where i am lost
and only we remain.
I just returned from a fantastic hike in the Rif mountains in northern Morocco, and this is what welcomes me. What a fun surprise! Thanks to everyone who has commented, favourited, started watching my work, and of course to alapip for suggesting that the photo gets a daily deviation. It's great to be back! :)

Nice gallery I've found while searching for "Tvärminne" on deviantArt (one never knows) !
I'm doing my fieldwork there right now, and enjoying every bit of it !
Thanks for sharing your pics.

Great to hear that you found something, and that you're getting to spend your summer in Tvärminne! I did field work there for 5 summers; it's a very dear place to me.

Have a great time, thanks for checking out my gallery! :)

I can definitely understand why people working regularly here hold this place dear.
Hehe, it's also fun to recognize some of the ants people on your pictures :)
All my best goes to you !

Tosi hyviä, nättejä ja selkeitä/hyvänlaatusia kuvia sulla. Jollain tavalla tunnelmallisia ja siksi tykästyin niihin.
Tykkään erityisesti luonto- ja eläinkuvista, tosi kauniita. Mustavalkoiset kuvat varsinkin yltävät myös suosiooni, sekä kuvauksessa että piirrustuksissa yleensäkkin.

Suurkiitokset, tosi kiva kuulla! Mieluiten hengailisin vain luonnossa ottamassa kuvia... Mutta joskus tulee toisenlaisiakin kuvia. Kiva että pidät näistä!

Luonto on kyllä ihana paikka. Ja eläimet varsinkin (siksi eläintenhoitajan ammattiin päädyinkin), löytää aina jotain mielenkiintoista ja kaunista.
Pidän ja paljon!
