Olavinlinna (Savonlinna) by m-eralp Olavinlinna (Savonlinna) by m-eralp
I made a surprise to myself last night and decided to visit Olavinlinna, one of the few castles of Finland which is still standing! :)About 6 hours of traveling and 6 hours of walking and shooting :)My legs are still recovering from the trip, but it was awesome. I will definitely go there soon again:)

This looks absolutely gorgeous! The building looks beautiful itself, but the angle of this looks perfect so every detail could be seen. And everything just fits, nothing seems to be a distraction. Even the sky and the little lights works with the picture pretty well.

But real the icing on the cake (for me), is the reflections on the water. It almost looks like it isn't real, in the best possible way. If I were to explain more how of this is beautiful, I could go on forever.


Over all, as a whole, it's amazing! I don't know what else to say about it without going over board but, it's great!
What do you think?

Ooh, nice! I didn't think you had such beautiful castles in Finland, but then again, I don't know much about Finland in the first place....... Meow :3 
Anyway, it's absolutely great with the lighting and all.  And the still water, so quiet and peaceful. I would say it was worth the long travelling! ^^

Fantastic picture .I was a bit surprised about the very long exosure but than I noticed you took this nearly midnight :D The long exposure give the water this nice smooth look and the reflections come out very natural . Great job as I know from you :)

Some were damaged after fire, war, time etc, and there weren't so many of them anyway :)
