Cloudbusting2-27, SkyWatch Friday

Yesterday I had to take some time off to admire the low hanging big fat august afternoon clouds. It is dark underneath them but there isn´t much rain really. 5 o´clock traffic is still quite easy in the second week of august, but it will change next week when the schools start.

See more skies from all over the world in SkyWatch Friday.

Cloudbusting2-26 Hanko In the summer

Hanko is my summer town. Every year I visit there for a day or two, sometimes 3. Only in july when the sun shines all the time. This year there was a lot of construction sites going on. The shouts of estonian construction workers was all over the beach. These days estonian workers are everywhere, as finnish labour is too expensive.

The prices of the new apartments are a bit hefty. 5500 euros for 1m2 is what something costs in a big city like Helsinki. Hanko is just a small town with a population less than 10 000.

Hanko watertower and church. Eternally sweeped by the fresh sea air and basking in the sunshine of the sunniest place in Finland.

Everybody´s gone from the beach in midnight. Only swans remain.
