Autumn moments to remember

This autumn has really been the complete opposite of summer. We had only few sunny days and it was cold and rainy.
But this autumn, the first time since I came here, has been so sunny and beautiful. The colors are so amazing and everything is like a masterpiece of art, awesome in colors and light.

I really hope there are still many sunny days to come

Summernight at the finnish countryside

A small roadtrip few days ago. We did not go far, but far from the civilization. I wonder how people can live in the middle of nowhere. Ok, it is quiet, but I would be afraid. Of bears… and wolfes… and crazy murderers, we all know these movies 😀

The first shot is the sunset at a nearby lake. I think the light on the sky near the sun is called a halo.

The other pictures are taken later, after the sun went down.

The lake and the woods were so quiet and peaceful. It was strange how the mist seemed to pour out of the ground and float to the lake.

Even some fields were misty…

After so many weeks … the sun!

Oh what a beautiful sight this morning. I saw blue sky! What an amazing sight, which I haven’t seen for weeks. It was few grades below 0 Celsius, the ground was frozen and the clouds were missing.

Well, on a day like this, you have no other choice then to get out of the house, as fast as you can. Directly after duhr (midday-prayer) we got in the car and drove to a beautiful place called Riihivuori. Here a short collection of pictures on this great late november day in middle Finland.

The view from up there was just fantastic, and it was the only right thing to do. With the sunlight-cache now filled up, we are prepared for the next grey days. We even found a woodpecker in the forest, hacking a tree.

I love those moments in the nature…
