Ducks in the winter on the ice at Töölö bay in Helsinki, 31.01.2018

Kraak

I rarely wake up early, but that day I had a Finnish language test at eight in the morning. I went out into the cold and dark. When I returned, the sun was already shining. There were a few fishermen at the bay, countless ducks, a couple of runners and me. I decided to photograph the ducks as you don’t need to ask for permission to photograph them. At that time, I had only lived in Finland for four months.
