Autumn forest in middle Finland

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

It was the time of year again! Our annual autumn forest trip was today. Looking at older posts, I saw I had posted none of our last year’s trip.

Well, not missing it this year. I was very beautiful, as usual. We were blessed with a beautiful weather, it was not too cold.

The sun was shining lightly through the clouds and gave everything a smooth feeling and look

The leaves were so beautifully colored

and there was a small lake with little fishies

And a sort of ski jump right into the water

Looks bit steep from above

I have always wondered, what is it like to jump in there. Never seen people doing it, but what else could it be for…

It was such a nice trip, I hope next year we will go again!

Inshaa Allah

The sun and the sea

A little image from the first days of september. Sunny days become more rare and rare, so when it shines, you have to go outside and enjoy the last glimpses. Sooner or later I will miss the sun desperately.

This haven and the sun was taken on these last summer days, or the first days of autumn. I just love the sun how warm it looks.

The boat is arriving at the haven, there are still so many boats out there. Some people leave their ship until the first ice come. I never have been a boat owner, so I cannot comment if this is a dumb thing to do, but I wonder what if you wait too long and you cannot get the boat out anymore.. Could be getting expensive.

Well, without a boat, I do not have to worry about it :)

Short glimpses of the forests of north-karelia

It was a really sunny and hot day, about 30°. The forest was quiet, only few birds sung about that day.

First we arrived at a awesome place full of blueberriesblueberry

They were so tasty, I could not get enough of them. We tried to collect some for home to make a pie, but it was impossible. We had to eat them all :)

The forest had amazing feeling, smell and look to it. In english they are called “dry peaty forest” (said the dictionary), in finnish simply “kangasmetsä”

There were these strange spots of white “lichen” (if my dictionary got right) everywhere, like white clouds on the ground.

We saw huge dragonflies, flying around like helicopters…

We climbed up to a mountain, called “rukkovaara”, and there was a beautiful view from the top…

We did even find a geocaching hideout, the kids were excited about. It was a beautiful trip, some of those memories you do not forget easily.

Noctilucent cloud – ugly name for a beautiful cloud

Tags

, , , , , ,

… which, indeed, is more frozen water chrystals than clouds itself, which can consist also of frozen water, but also of water droplets.

Noctilucent clouds, also night shining clouds are located about 76 to 85 kilometers high.

Just awesome, interesting also that the phenomenon of these most high clouds ever is still not fully understood, despite all the fancy machines we humans have made…

I had the change to witness these beauties, notice the darker clouds on the right corner, which are normal clouds, thus the sun does not shine on them…

Beloved ramadan memories

The most beloved moments in Ramadan,

the quiet peace of the night hours,

my heart, left on the prayer mat

my soul, full of joy

quiet dark moments

The rising of a beautiful moon,

marking the end of these beloved days…

almost over

The sky after fajr,

bursting in the most amazing colours,

full of peace and remembrance

fajr sky

What are your most beloved ramadan moments? Share them on the comments, I’d love to hear…
