Autumn is my favourite time for enjoying nature: nice, cool weather and minimal bugs, not to mention all the leaves turning gorgeous colours. Here are a few snaps from last week's walk near Porvoo. (The trail leaves near Haikko manor and is only about 2.5 km long if anyone wants to give it a go.)
A beautiful lake
Here's a painting Albert Edelfelt did at the lake
Lingonberry leaves just turning
I'm not sure what this is called in English, but in Finnish it's karhunsammal, bear's moss, because it's a nice, soft place for a bear to take a nap on.
Are you looking at the trees or are they looking at you?
Ferns carpet the forest floor
Do you dare venture off the beaten path?
