This beautiful mute swan was swimming around the bay. As I was sitting on the rocks I saw it was a bit curious of me. I started to whistle and this swan came to me instantly, like it knew that me whistling was a calling for it. It came close, put it's head below the water, got up and stared at me and made some odd noises. And I took some photos of it, of course.

This photo came out fabulous. Swan's own body made the background, drops off water glimmering on it's face and nearby bushes set some very nice decor elements to the edges. I'm so satisfied with the result.

And what a beautiful bird.

Abandoned boat

I heard there was an old sunken abandoned boat at the coast of Emäsalo, Porvoo. So I just had to go see it to take few photos. I had imagined the boat a bit different but it wasn't a negative surprise. It was just different. I also had imagined different kind of conditions for my photos but yet again, you can't choose the weather. Anyhow.. I'm quite happy of the photos nevertheless. Pretty sure I will go see this another day too, but I will watch on the weather... And maybe go later towards the night.

Here's a photo of it followed by few detail shots.
