Less than an hour's drive from Tallinn, Lahemaa National Park offers a rich and varied landscape, amazing short hikes and the unlikely prospect of meeting another person. Lahemaa is the oldest and largest national park in Estonia representing the nature and cultural heritage, typical of North Estonia. Established in 1971, covering an area of 72,500 ha. It encompasses 47,410 ha of land and 25,090 ha of sea.

 

Top of the Käsmu peninsula is a real paradise for landscape photographer, you can shoot sunset and sunrise or moonrise from one spot with so many boulders in very shallow sea and all that during those looong nights, only downside - sleep max 3 hours (not enough for me!)

 

When I planned photoshoot of this location, one of things besides scouting the place, was checking the sunset and moon rise time - it was perfect - sunset 21:50 and moon rise 22:09, the moon was rising really to the north which was perfect as well. I would not be able to capture such a scene with moon only 2 days to the last quarter if I were not so far North.

 

Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II; Lens: EF17-40mm f/4L USM, Focal length: 32.00 mm; Aperture: 7.1, Exposure time: 32.0 s, ISO: 125
