Marmalade skies of Åland Archipelago
Kalervo Karlsson shares his amazingly artistic photographs. “Nice to share with anyone who wish to see . ” He points out that you can see swans swimming if you look closely.
The artist and his beautiful wife Niina Karlsson of Fikorus.com fame, are on their yearly holiday to the northern lights where they restore their souls.
The Karlsson family summer in Byholmsviken, one of the few inhabited islands in Åland. It is easy to see how rooted their artistic inspiration is in their natural habitat.
Åland is located in the Baltic Sea, at the southern end of the Gulf of Bothnia between mainland Finland and Sweden. The Åland archipelago consists of around 6 500 islands, but only more than 60 are inhabited. Åland has its own taxation system, its own postage stamps, its own flag and Swedish as its only official language. For travelers, the Åland islands offer activities from adventurous island-hopping to boating, fishing, golfing and lots more. It’s easy to get from one island to another thanks to the many bridges and ferries, and Åland’s roads are terrific for cycling holidays.

Jere Hietala, Photography
Jere Hietala’s unique style has brought him international acclaim. Jere Hietala prefers to work with fashion designers, advertising agencies, and major music labels. He was awarded the First prize in a national Finnish Photography contest.
“I aim to create timeless and meaningful images that reflect the mood of our time by using dramatic stories in all fields of photography. My subjects are caught in between the worlds of reality and fiction. A photograph tells a story, it can be seen as a silent film. To me, photography is like devising a carefully planned renaissance painting, where artistic form is coherent with the intellectual content. I create the style depending on the subject matter. The technical details and direction are as important as the idea.
Each photograph has to be perfect, like a heightened hyper-reality. Digital manipulation of the picture can be a useful technique, but only if it is stylistically consistent with the idea itself.” — Okko Oinonen

Nina is like a samurai in the package of a butterfly. Kalervo has seen many dancers and to him she is the best in the world. She is rising out of the earth with strength and grace. He is not alone. The press celebrates her all around the world, here is one quote by Auli Räsänen.
“Nina Hyvärinen surprised by her sensual solo The Rite in which her emphatic body bent to the choreography showing the influence of the African. Supple pelvis, shigering muscles and breathing dance – all were enjoyable to see.
Hyvärinen walks her own ways and it feels now that she has taken off her uniform of the ballerina. I hope that she keeps her career as a wide contemporary dancer – in a field which she is ideal for herself”.
