Took a tent and borrowed a canoe from my old friend and went camping on an island in Lake Saimaa - the fifth largest lake system in Europe. My dad took me often here fishing with him when I was small. Later I used to come with my brother. Both have passed away. And I havenīt lived here for almost 30 years and donīt belong to this place anymore. But if I am not part of this place anymore, the place has become a part of me. Later after this shot it started raining and it was fun to lie in a tent and listen to wind, waves, rain and night birds.

Wonderful image!

Love the silhouettes, colors, and soft light coming from inside the tent. Also, thanks for sharing your story about this place. Helps to make for a tender image.
