Flickr a Week 25a: ‘Happy Midsummer’

The week gets an extra entry, and surely self-titled “Happy Midsummer” reveals why. “Just after two o’clock, in wilderness”, on June 19, 2019, yrjö jyske captured the moment, using Canon EOS 700D and EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens. Vitals: f/5.6, ISO 6400, 1/160 sec, 115mm. The photo wins the Solstice for composition, drama, and graininess that adds pinch of film-like character.

“I’m a self-taught photographer, animal lover, and am very passionate about photography—my favorite being shooting birds in the wild!” yrjö says. And where? “My beautiful country Finland”. Still active in 2020, yrjö joined Flickr in July 2011.
