Here it is once again - The Legendary Date of Rebirth & The New Beginning & Worshipping The Midsummer Sun, and somewhat risky to wander around. Yet I was out there under the real and raw sky on an expedition.
You might remember that during the previous years for numerous times on this very same date I have been extremely boldly participating in a racy expedition through the wilderness completely without saving my efforts.
Well - i did it again.
Yes I went outside again, but this time underachieving mildly - you have to understand that "not for more than 30 minutes !" is the ultimate advice - not to ever neglect - so today as I went out at 11:09 o'clock to quickly jump into a car to drive for hours and hours (it seems like), spend the day sitting in a car and getting lost in the mall elevators and goofing around elsewhere indoors and acting strangely out of character - masking this by saying I was "out" for the whole day ... oh I got sidetracked but yes, indeed, just a few seconds before that outing, also this year I did have a narrow timewindow open, the camera with me, and a chance to uttermost rapidly, taking all essential precautions in consideration, perform my (let's face it and call it what it is) ultimately ragingly risky task to set myself closer to The Platform again.
The image above of the overall appearance of the terrains was photographed in ancient Raasepori, in southwestern Finland today, on Friday December 14th, 2018 at approximately 11:09:18.
That is me.
You understand now to what extent of extreme measures I stretch myself to perform this annually. The quality of the photgraphy is not top class, but this really is the closest I dared to go this year. Can you detect the worshippers on the opposite shore of the totally iceless lake ? Yes, there they are - rituals going on again, full speed ahead - exactly as I expected. I backed off from the situation as fast as I could, and managed to stay unspotted, I believe.
To prove the unexpectedness of this ritual each year at the same time, I will provide here another photograph, which I took yesterday - when there is absolutely NO ritual whatsoever going on out there.
The image above of the overall appearance of the terrains was photographed in ancient Raasepori, in southwestern Finland yesterday, on Thursday December 13th, 2018 at approximately 13:16:34.
You can see how easy it is to approach the location effortlessly and without any hesitation on the previous day of thee day. The lake surface in the image is not ice - it is merely the grayish reflexion of the gloomy skies.
However, a slight change in the overall ciscumstances has occurred since last year. There has appeared some population growth nearby. There are new human habitants in the territory. Or at least, that's what I have been assuming. But with these matters, how can you tell, really ?
As usual, I am again monitoring the situation from my quarters for the next week from now on before The Secsacsol 2018 and The Full Moon on the 22st of December. I will report if anything occurs but I guess we will have to wait again for a whole year.
