New pictures added to the Photography section

I recently noticed that for some reason the pictures of Nightwish's Ruisrock performance in 2008 had  not yet been added. They are my personal favourite Nightwish pictures, together with the shots from Lorca Rock, because I got to roam around on stage with my camera and got also a different stage angle. On top of that, the summer night in Turku was exceptionally beautiful that Friday and gave me a great lighting to the pictures. Some older shots added are Backyard Babies, December 2008 from Tavastia. I had the honor to hand over the pictures personally to the band members at Kivenlahti Rock in Espoo in the beginning of the summer. These guys were true rockers as well as laid back and fun guys to hang out with. The third folder added from 2008 is from Berlin in the autumn. I went there for the Popkomm convention, but I also got to see Lordi's gig, as well as the Ramones museum, not forgetting about the Sturm Und Drang pictures that have their own folder.

The pictures from Nightwish's Brussels and Rotterdam gigs that have been out for some time already are now accompanied by pictures from their support acts. Both pictures from Pain lead by Peter Täggtgren and the finnish band Indica are from the gig's mentioned above where they were playing as support acts.

From Finnish concerts there are pictures from Tavastia from the end of the spring when Kotiteollisuus took over the stage, accompanied by the Count of Kitee and his keyboards. Even if he is a familiar face in front of the camera it was nice to see him in the midst of some uglier brutes for once.

The last pictures added this time are some Junior Football pictures from a summery Helsinki as well as some already well-known sunset pictures from Kesälahti, Karelia. The football shots are to practice taking "fast-paste sport pictures" and the sunset shots from Mäntyranta, Kesälahti are from my holiday, These views from Puruvesi shows the contrast between the busy everyday life in the mastering studio and the well-earned holiday where I can recharge. I am completely addicted to my holiday there! Besides, there has never been two sunsets that look the same in Kesälahti!

This summer in Karelia ended in Nightwish's gig in Olavinlinna Castle, Savonlinna.

So the summer is heading to its end and my holiday is long gone. Now it's time to get back to the busy life and in with the skulls in the D-studio, refreshed and ready for another year. The floorball season started as well and junior has already got the nets swinging. I'll get back to this later on in the autumn.
