Simo Räsänen (also known here as Ximonic) is one of many users or builders in Wikimedia projects. The user has a Finnish nationality and is a Finnish native speaker. The recommended contact language is English in case one does not speak Finnish.

Considerably, I have the most easy access to the Lapland area of Finland, Sweden and Norway. To me it is very possible to get to the southern parts of these countries too. If you have any place in mind (especially in the mentioned area) that you would like me to take photographs of don't hesitate to suggest it to me. I will look forward and consider to go there. Besides, the visit can get really interesting to me too.

Picture of the day
Iglesia de San Colmano, Schwangau, Alemania, 2015-02-15, DD 15.JPG
Winter landscape of St Coloman church (de), located in Schwangau, Bavaria, southern Germany. St Coloman church is of baroque style and was constructed, the way it is today, in the 17th century in honor to Saint Coloman, replacing a chapel of the 15th century. The irish pilgrim is said to have taken a break at this spot in his pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1012.

  • Hoya UV(0) filter
  • Marumi DHG Circular PL(D) filter
  • Hoya HMC NDx8 filter
  • Hoya Pro1 Digital MC protector
  • Hoya CIR-PL filter
  • Manfrotto Art 055 tripod
  • Slik Monopod 350
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 bridge digital camera (some of the older photographs are taken with this one)
