Last Photo Challenge- Best of the best

So here we are, the last The Daily Post Photo Challenge. It’s been a good run. I started the challenge in January 2014. Here are my All-time favourite photos.

This was my first ever photo I posted for the challenge. It might not be my best work but it was memorable. It’s morning in Stockholm and it was my mother last cruise. She passed away in 2013.

This photo was my most popular. Actually, most popular ever on this blog. It’s taken with a macro lens. It’s a sunflower.

sunflowerLast but not least. My favourite. It’s a ski trip in Lapland. It was a time when cancer wasn’t even close to our family. I like it because I manage to catch movement which is not the easiest to photograph.

gone but not forgottenSo there you have it. Such a shame The Daily Post decided to end this great photo challenge. Among others. So thank you again.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

Varkaankuru, Ylläs Ski Resort

This is taken in 2011. It’s from a ski resort in Finnish Lapland. It’s more steep than it looks. And it’s also quite narrow in the beginning. I’ve slalom skied since I was 6 (once a year at least) but it took me years to found courage to go downhill from this place. The end of the hill it’s just straight down without having to turn. Just enjoy with the wind in your hair. This is the last time I skied and it was also my mother’s last trip to Lapland before she got sick. We went to there almost every year and a few times in the summer. It was our tradition since I was 2 months old. Of course I started to ski much later.
