Hi, my name is Isko Salminen.
I'm an adventure seeker and I love exploring nature with my camera and Australian Shepherd called Fire

Vappu 2013 – Havis Amanda

We got lucky this year as we got to spend the May Day with clear skies and sunshine. Even though the air–and especially the wind–was still cold, it was way better that the predicted rain.

I took my new Zuiko 75mm/f1.8 lens out for a test and these are few of the photos I took at Havis Amanda.
