Photography Series a Finnish year

On the 25th of May 2016 I moved to Finland with my wife. We live on the countryside near the lovely small town Pälkäne. We run a small permaculture called Beyond Buckthorns and we work in our marketing company Chase & Snow. 2017 is the 100th Anniversary of Finland's Independence. Therefore this series contains 100 photos.
