An autumn in Finland
« on: July 19, 2020, 22:09:10 »
To anticipate the coming autumn, I would like to share these images back from September 2015. I drove north from Helsinki in the eastern part of the country and return through the western part. Some highlights were the Plielinen area, Oulanka, the marsh near Oulu, and the 100s of lakes all over. This weekend I finally I had some time to select a few images. A very rainy 10 days with a few strokes of light made for a very interesting color palette.

The third and the last ones are my favorite, but I enjoy all images from the country I'd love to visit.

Thank you for sharing!

Wonderful colors, Simone.

Thanks for sharing. You're bringing back fond memories of May last year when we landed in Oulu for a 10 day spring trip. Now, I'd like to go there in Autumn too :)

It is certainly worth it if you like the more somber moods. The days are very short though in the more northern parts and you have to be prepared for some (a lot of) rain.
