Amazing Photos of a Finnish Island Across Four Seasons

Jani Ylinampa is a photographer, a real master of capturing breathtaking sunsets, beautiful forests, lakes and other wonders of nature.

He really takes full advantage of his surroundings, photographing the colorful Northern Lights and all the beauty that the environment has to offer. But there’s a small island that has really caught his attention. Kotisaari Island is a small landmass that is accessible only by boat, in the town of Rovaniemi, and also, is the protagonist of a photo set which shows the remarkable beauty of the island year-round, changing all the seasons from winter to spring, and summer to fall.

The first time I took the photo of the island was in summer 2015 and I published it on my Instagram account in spring 2016. It went viral soon afterward and was shared on countless accounts on social media. That’s when I got the idea of taking photos of each season,” Ylinampa said.

The photographer hopes that his pictures demonstrate that Lapland is more than just a winter wonderland. “There’s so much to experience especially during summer and autumn, with the midnight sun and the autumn northern lights; they’re better when there is yet no snow on the ground to reflect light.

These photos prove the power of nature and that all we need is the right setting to make photographic magic happen. Scroll down to see it for yourself.

Sea Turtles Get Rescued From Unnecessary Suffering

As you may know, barnacles are some sort of crustacean that usually fix themselves to rigid surfaces as rocks or even ships. Yet, sometimes they can attach to the sea turtles shell. Although one single barnacle doesn’t particularly cause any sort of damage, if the barnacles number found on a turtle’s shell is too high, that could turn into real struggles for the hopeless marine creature. Swimming difficulties, infections and even poor eyesight can be the result of these sticky crustacean.

And today we will focus on a random act of kindness, where a heroic guy from Sri Lanka, decides to help some poor sea turtles to dispose of a burden that could eventually cost their lives. The helpful man, called Chika Boy is great fond of wildlife and always willing to step up for the hopeless animals. This time, he removes the barnacles from the turtle’s shell!

So, in his latest YouTube video, Chika Boy shows us the easiest way to help a sea turtle to get rid of those unpleasant guests. You can see how many barnacles attached themselves to this tiny sea turtle. Fortunately, this nice guy removes them all using a special tool. Then, with its shell clean, Chika Boy releases the turtle back in the ocean.
