Weekend is almost finished and its nice to look back and remember a nice slow drive in the countryside. It is amazing how the climate changes very soon after you leave the metropolitan area of Helsinki.
The early snow we had in the last week or so has melted here but in the countryside the ground is partly covered in snow and ice. Eventually these landscapes will be all white, but now there is a contrast of ground and snow.
A desolated old farm with its barn was quite nice to look upon. Old school countryside, people have left and the houses are left empty. Perhaps the owners now live cosily in the city or in a new house somewhere nearby.
So as not to go all black and white here is a color photo of a flooded field. The autumn has been very rainy here and all that water has had no place to go, so there has been some flooding. The biggest floods were higher up in the north west along the big rivers.
Hope you all have a nice week ahead!
