National park tour
I have the second but last year making my national park book. The book of the Finnish national parks has to be ready by the beginning of 2017 when Finland will turn 100 years. I live quite hectic times now as I am also writing the text for the book.
There are 39 national parks in Finland. We got the newest national park this past January (Teijo). I will interview several people from each park + use my own experience when writing the text. So far, during the last five years, I have spent about 550 days in our national parks. The more I see, the more I want to see. Especially during the summers and falls I don’t have time much at all to do work which can pay me now. This project seems to take most of my time and money – and energy. Fortunately, I will get a grant for making the book next year. It has been a great adventure. I have to remind myself often not to do too much. Especially summers can be tough for the body when I sleep too little. I, as a nature photographer, have to be out there working during the hours when others are sleeping. One day, all this hard work will pay off.
Here are some of my best national park photographs.
