This image takes us from a forest path to a garden on a hot summer's day! Busy-sounding buzzing in a rose bush! Low humming by the wall. It's bumble-bees at work! This energetic photo brings a smile to your face, both as a single frame and as a recurring
Peek-a-Boo! Can you hear the rustle? Do you feel the warmth of the sun? Can you sense the scent of pine? Who do you think is more curious, the squirrel or me?
Here's a traveller with no hurries in the world, on a grit road after a rainy day. A snail, and a clear sign of the autumn upon us. Time to slow down and enjoy!
Spring Blueberry A familiar path leads you up the hill, under the dry pine-trees. Bright sunbeams find their way through the branches and on the bright-green moss bed. Golden shades and red little pearls everywhere! Blueberries are abloom!
Frosty leaf It's unbelievable how beautifully the frost decorates a leaf with its frozen lace! A lonely leaf takes you to a halt on a gravel road. The leaf and the gravel beneath it turn into a graphic pattern, both in black and white and in natural colo

SUNRISE Early in the morning, when the sun is but a glimmer in the horizon, everything has a full, velvety colour. Frozen asphalt knocks under your shoes. Weeds growing by the brook already seem to wait for the first snow. Busy people steer their cars on
The design is wild, but the original photo was a down-to-earth grass-root shot with authentic colours. The little beads of water shimmer in the morning dew as the first sunbeams gently touch them. This photo was the inspiration for a design called Pale Di

Morning is dawning and as skies clear, thousands of diamonds shimmer in the grass and in the branches along the path. Much more astonishing than any real diamond!
Wild raspberries The summer continues. There are wild raspberries along the forest path. Feet are light with the flavour of raspberry on your lips. For those who prefer calmer tones, I designed a grey pattern, with only the raspberries clinging to their
Ice age This wall, made up of natural bricks, was a beautiful sight among the frost, the snow and the blue dusk. Lapland's polar nights and complete silence.
One summer's day on a marsh, with invisible spider webs brushing against my face, with insects chirping and with the potent scent of andromeda in the air, I turned my eyes to the small, candy-pink flowers down at my feet.
