Something out of the ordinary !! A day in Winterlandia there everything can happen...

The feeling of getting a Siberian jay to sit on my finger.....

...it was certainly something out of the ordinary !!

...and follow when the bird is eating a piece of bread from my hand.

 To walk with the camera in the wild, then it may become
memorable occasions.

Sometimes you even immortalized various encounters on the camera's sensor.

That's what makes it for me to stubbornly continues walk in all weathers, over logs and stones.

As we all know, nature is very sensitive and vulnerable.

It is in our hands and responsibility to be gentle in nature, if the future people should be able to experience the same moments in nature that we have.

Nature can be without us, but we need the Nature.

Thank you for voting at my Facebook site.

Was walking with my snow shoes in the Winterlandia (Ukkohalla) when I saw the old laughing lady.
She smiled so nice at me.
I had to put the camera almost down to the snow.
Couldn't take off my shoes, then I sure had stocked into the 1 meter deep snow.

We Finns can make a snowy winter day extreme fun!!

I have the honor to present something very special.
We Finns can make a snowy winter day extreme fun!!

I don't normally go on sports events.
But now in this last year I have visited two events!

Swamp soccer in the summer, and now... .........Snow soccer.
Both of them titled world championships.


Snow soccer world championships in Ukkohalla 6.2.2016

About 60 teams playing on snow fields on the lake Syväjärvi.

Teams that played for pleasure and those who were looking for the gold medal.

Very interesting to follow people playing soccer in deep snow.

 A lot of different styles, a pleasure for a photographer.

Some teams were dressed really funny.

Ice under new snow made it a little worse to play.

Teams traveled as far as from Saint-Petersburg.

 A cheerleader has to use all kind of gear.

A hard fight. 
The goalkeeper try to catch the ball.

Please enjoy a Såka photographers observations of joy, 
fun, seriousness, blood, sweat and snow!!

I did! 

The ladies winning team in action.

Somewhere in the nowhere, it's happening wild things.

Play, and you don't need to freeze.

A major goal kick ......

Ukkohalla, where everything is possible.

 What a great day in the Winterlandia!!

Her you find photos from swamp soccer last summer;
