taivasalla is a Finnish word meaning 'under the open sky'.

I'm a self-taught hobby photographer living in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. I've been enthusiastic about taking pictures since I bought my first digital camera back in the year 2000.

My photos in flickr are taken either with my mobile phone camera (Nokia N95), my Nikon Coolpix 8700, or my Nikon D200 SLR. Larger versions of some photos are available in my photoblog Under the Open Sky.

    "Long time ago I found a photoblog from Helsinki. I used to return everyday to dream about Finland.
    And now taivasalla is on flickr too. Thanks for your wonderful photos and virtual trips to my favourite city."

    "From grandiose landscapes to subtle little details, Niklas knows how to explore Nature's innumerable beauties. Looking at his pictures, I travel to Finland and never, since I 'know' him, have I been disappointed or bored; never have I grown tired of the journey. Niklas, your pictures have inspired me, and still do. Although I don't always comment on Taivasalla, it has become quite a habit to visit it every single day. Always a pleasure. Welcome to Flickr, which I know thanks to you, and prepare yourself: you already have a small battalion of fans on Taivasalla, you'll soon probably have a whole army here! ; )"
