5 Days 15 Hours Ago

My favourite cabin in the world has been standing strong since 1975 in the middle of Bothnian Bay. This cabin is part of my childhood memories and I have re-discovered it’s amazing surroundings in recent years. It was built by my grandfather and now it belongs to my cousin. This place has survived all the storms and moving ice for decades. As I have been exploring the undiscovered gems with Huawei for this summer, it felt natural to show this place to you guys. We canoed here with my mom and stayed the night. We woke up to sunrise and saw hudreds of cranes passing by. You can see this cabin and few other from the bird viewing tower of Liminganlahti (with binoculars) or canoe / ski closer to see how they look from outside. Ps. It was the first time my mom slept here even she has been coming here since it was built! @huaweimobilefi #huaweip30pro #kauneuttaonkaikkialla

Old photo, same feeling. I have been wandering in the woods alone and shooting a lot lately. I feel like I’m full of inspiration for this Autumn, just like when I took this photo years ago. 🍂

For 30 years I thought my childhood home village had nothing for me to get inspired of. Thanks mom for going on a canoeing trip with me. ❤️ #liminka

I love calm places. I love it when you can stare at a view that stays still and let’s your mind wander without any disturbance. What I love the most, is when that place is far from the roads, far from the crowds. This was one of those. Got to be here totally alone and enjoy this view. @huaweimobilefi is now challenging everyone to find these places. They are hosting a photography competition InFocus Awards where the main prize is 10 000€! There are six categories that you can choose from for example ’Going The Distance’. You can participate with all the photos taken with Huawei mobile and you can submit your images until 11.8. Good luck ✨ @huaweimobilefi #huaweip30pro #kauneuttaonkaikkialla #goingthedistance

The best summer views. Swipe to see a throwback video from last summer, I miss this so bad! This was maybe the best trip where my job has ever taken me. To show people how amazing our country is, how beautiful our summer can be and do it with such a good team. #laplandbucketlist job for @onlyinlapland with/ @dansmoe @kpunkka Film by: @miikkajouhki ps. Fire made in the video last summer, forest fire warnings are still on in most of Finland.

Goals for the summer: Spend more nights outside than inside.

A moment for myself. Even I spend a lot of time in the nature, I only do longer hikes around 3-4 times in a year. Once again I realized I should do it more often. It’s a heaven for your mind to be offline and out in the wild. This photo was taken a day before the hike last week.

Yesterday I had a small exhibition opening in Syöte, thank you so much for everyone who came! ♡ The exhibition is open until 30.9. and all the prints made in Finland by @dialabfineart are for sale. Also huge thanks to my graphic designer @hiekkagraphics for a great work. It wasn’t the first and definitely not the last project together. ↟ #finland #exhibition #hiekkagraphics #dialab #rokua #syötenationalpark

An undiscovered gem in Finland - Hepoköngäs waterfall. I am currently on a road trip to find five less known locations and to photograph them with my Huawei P30 pro mobile. Since I first visited this place couple years ago I was amazed how this place feels like it’s hidden in a jungle and wanted to share it with you guys. Totally unique feeling in Finland. In the morning when I was taking this photo I thought there is no other place where I would rather be. Traveling in Finland and seeing new places is always a dream and I am excited to continue this journey. More about the tour soon in stories. #collaboration @huaweimobilefi #huaweip30pro #kauneuttaonkaikkialla
