No drought here thats for sure
The colour here reminds me of some of the slide films of the 60s.
Beautiful scene. The colours are quite amazing!

the greens are wonderful in this.
You obviously had good weather - but is it a tad over-saturated?
Charles Dastodd: yeah, afraid so.

Nice shot !
Did you visit other parts of Finland ?
Hi Charles...gotta agree with Tom Wilson.

One technique for saturating colours is to take them up to the point of fluorescence - and then back off a bit. That will enhance the colours, but keep a degree of reality.
Charles Dastodd: thanks for the suggestion, George. I have to say when I originally did this I hadn't noticed that they were too saturated, but after looking at it again I agree as well.
It sure is sunny in Helsinki!!
