Liitianiemi Magic August Sunset

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Veijo Sinerva

This beautiful, still August sunset in Central Finland was captured 90 minutes after the sunset. At such north altitudes, the sun descends in such a low angle that the "golden window" extends far beyond half an hour, creating deep red colors in the sky. The dark, still lake has a powerful grasp on the image. The lake has got a soul, and it's powerful sense of calm and darkness will embrace the viewer with awe.

Location: Central Finland
