Autumn forest in middle Finland

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

I miss the summer, and I am feeling  little bit like the story from old nan in Game of Thrones…

Oh, my sweet summer child, what do you know about fear? Fear is for the winter, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep. Fear is for the long night, when the sun hides for years, and children are born and live and die all in darkness. That is the time for fear, my little lord, when the White Walkers move through the woods… Thousands of years ago, there came a night that lasted a generation. Kings froze to death in their castles, same as the shepherds in their huts, and women smothered their babies rather than see them starve, and wept, and felt their tears freeze on their cheeks. So is this the sort of story that you like?

Ok the snow is not hundred feet deep, 🙂 but I feel like I haven’t seen the sun in years… The above picture from the pines describe the feeling more than words…

A squirrel shadow

Yesterday at the childrens playground I was accompanied by a very curious young squirrel, who was very funny. He (or she) even jumped at the table while I was sitting there, but he was so quick, hard to take pictures. I managed to get some, and today I was playing with my freshly installed Gimp 2.8, really a good program mashaAllah!

Blue trees

Alhamdulillah, all praise to God, soon after 1st January it got colder, seems so that this lasts a while inchaAllah.

The sea froze, but walking not really recommended, its still just not cold enough, only few grades below zero.

But snow, snow, a lot of snow these days!

I like it very much, if its snowing and getting darker, the snow seems to be blue. Below pictures of blue snowy trees… I love trees with snow on them, they are just beautiful… MashaAllah
