2013 week 15 - Keisarinharju (South), Kangasala

Same plan as 2012, one blog posting for each week. Hopefully execution of plan is better than in 2012 :) In 2013 I'll be focusing towards Pirkanmaa (EN / FI) nature preservation areas in lakes, ponds and lake landscapes.

In order to get to these locations, I need a boat. I have very little experience from boats, so I'll start small and got myself small inflatable boat ( Zodiac Cadet 240 Aero) with electric outboard motor. It will be slow, but also it only weights 26kg so it's quite portable. Thou motor weights about 10kg and battery about 18kg, so can't carry all the stuff at one go to shore.

I'm also working for portal functionality to present Pirkanmaa nature preservation areas and my photos from them in maps based on GPS coordinates. However progress on that front might be quite slow since I don't have much interest to sit on computer and code if there is daylight outdoors... During the dark winter days I have added most of Pirkanmaa nature preservation areas to my database, but I'm struggling a little with the code to show the locations on map.

Few winter photos from South-end of Keisarinharju, which is nature preservation area as well as Vehoniemenharju on another side of Kaivanto channel, which connects Längelmävesi and Roine lakes.
