A dreary bleak morning one would think. A beautiful mist, another would think.. I fall straight into that second category. I went out to chase the mist and try and capture some of the beauty of the nature.
I find that nature is so, so beautiful in the fall as the colors have so many hues. Then there is the fact that fogs occur more often than in the summer and together these two elements provide a nice “canvas” to work with.
The old medieval church and the small village beside it were nicely covered in the fog. The power of the sun though is still strong enough to melt the mist quickly so I was fighting against time, trying to get to a good vantage point to photograph it best.
Pretty dont you think? The field had given a good harvest and now only awaits the spring.
Coming back after the mist had gone I was captivated by these berries. A very good sign there will be nice opportunities to photograph birds in the coming weeks as there is a lot of food for them.
In a world so uncertain
Through the clouds it’s hard to see
I will grab you and lift you
As you hold on tight and sway
We’ll go walking
Across the fields of gray

The colors of the forest are still blooming with more and more leaves falling down.
Harvest is also over and the fields more or less ready for the winter and await a new spring.
A rainbow seen from afar. Not the typical beautiful full half-circle though.
More beautiful forest colors. All photos in this set taken in south-west Finland. A beautiful region of Finland.
I guess that as a Finn I am drawn to our forests. Finland is full of big and small forests and like our lakes, they are a important part of our culture. Finland is also one of the rare countries where you can freely wonder in just about any forest with our “everymans rights”. Forests are also full of wonderful details as well as a place to visit to calm your nerves and breathe fresh air.
