Photographer's Note

A pleasant evening light illuminates a rowing boat on the shores of lake Simpelejärvi in eastern Finland.
Lake Simpelejärvi and the region around the small town of Parikkala are renewed as a paradise for bird watching. Both lake Simpelejärvi and nearby Siikalahti are considered as the best observation spots for bird lovers in Finland. This is due to the proximity of lake Ladoga, some 35km to the east, that influences the microclimate of the region and makes the vegetation especially lush and attractive for many a local or migrating bird. There have been over 70 species of birds recorded here.
