The photograph of the month for April 2020 comes from my Finland workshop in September last year. It has also been a while since I have posted a landscape photograph as my image of the month. Taken very early on a still morning with rising fog by the side of a placid lake near our cabin, this photograph epitomises for me the peace, tranquility and silent beauty of the Finland forest in Autumn. This photograph really works for me on an emotive level. The soft distant trees in combination with the still lake and contrasting reeds gives a strong sense of peace and tranquility.
I will be leading another workshop to this part of northern Finland in October this year (provided the world recovers from the Chinese Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic) for a small group of just six photographers (only two places remaining). Although this workshop is dedicated to the photography of Wolves, Wolverine and Bears it should be noted that there are also many really superb landscape opportunities.
